THE BOOK OF

ZECHARIAH

 

Overview:

This book is named after the prophet who composed it. Apart from the book's introduction to Zechariah (1:1-6), this book may be studied in two sections: messages presented during Temple construction, consisting of eight visions (1:7-6:15) and four messages (chapters 7 and 8), and messages delivered after the construction was complete, consisting of Cycle One (chapters 9 through 11) and Cycle Two (chapters 12 through 14).

Authorship:

The prophet Zechariah is identified by this book (1:1-6) as having been the son of Berechiah, who was the son of Iddo (cf. Matthew 23:35). Other than these references, the Bible contains virtually no other information about this individual (who is mentioned along with Haggai, in Ezra 5:1 and 6:14). Even extra-biblical writings say little about him.

Composition Date:

Some scholars see the writer of this book as a successor to the older prophet Haggai, who is thought to have died before the Temple reconstruction project that he envisioned was completed. This book claims (1:1-6) that its introductory vision was received by Zechariah sometime during the eighth month of the second year of the reign of Darius the Great (i.e., ca. November – October 520 BC).

Messianic Hope:

The Messiah as the One Whom They Pierced
