Through-the-Bible Thursday: ZECHARIAH (4 mins)

How appropriate that the author, grandson of Iddo the priest, has the name “Zechariah,” meaning “Yahweh remembers.” This key book connects the prophetic dots for us, and shows us that God does indeed remember. The One who promises also performs. This prophecy contains eight visions in chapters 1–6, four messages in chapters 7 and 8, and two burdens or oracles in chapters 9–14. The book is full of portraits of Christ, and anticipates the day when not only the vessels in the temple but everything will be consecrated to the Lord’s special service, engraved with the insignia, “Holiness to the Lord.”
