Daily Scripture & Questions
Zechariah 1-4 Zechariah is a contemporary of Haggai. The people acknowledge their sin in God’s righteous discipline (1:6), and then we find a series of visions. What is the core meaning of the first three (the horseman, the horns and craftsmen, and the man with a measuring line)? Who cleans up the high priest, Joshua, in chapter three? Note how the vision goes beyond Joshua to “the Branch” and the hope of the iniquity being removed in a single day (which we know happened on Good Friday) in chapter three, verses eight and nine. God is going to use the governor, Zerubbabel, for His glory. What is the key word to him in chapter four, verse six? Are you being called by God to do things that are beyond your might and power?
