Zechariah Commentary: CHapters 12,13,14
Zechariah Commentary: Zechariah was a priest and prophet to the Jews during the rebuilding and reestablishing of Jerusalem after Babylonian exile. He was the son of a prophet, which means he belonged to Aaron’s family. The Lord assigned Zechariah to encourage His people to continue rebuilding the second temple (the first temple was burned down by Nebuzaradan, Captain of the Guard, who served under King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon).
The theme of Chapters 12 through 14 deals with Israel in the latter years, signifying the return of Jesus Christ and the establishment of His Kingdom on Earth.
