Zechariah, Prophet to Returned Exiles - Zechariah
God’s people had been conquered and exiled because they had not kept their covenant with God. A group of God’s people had been allowed to return to their homeland and begin rebuilding the temple and the city of Jerusalem.
Zechariah shared this message with the people by telling them about some visions God had given him. God used a vision of a gold lampstand to help Zechariah understand that God would empower His people to rebuild His temple. Although the people felt small and unimportant and faced opposition, God was with them. God would help Zerubbabel and the people rebuild the temple. Zechariah had eight different visions that included four horsemen, a flying scroll, and four chariots. Zechariah’s visions helped the people understand that God was in control and He was with them.
Zechariah also made an important promise about the future. Zechariah prophesied about the Messiah. He said, “Rejoice! Shout in triumph Jerusalem. Your king is coming to you. He is righteous and victorious. He is humble and riding on a donkey.”
God would send His Son to rescue people from their sin. Jesus would be a humble, righteous King who would pay the price for our sin.
