OT030 / OT029 - Post Exilic Prophets (English / Hebrew)

The post-exilic prophets provide encouragement to God’s people in tough times. The focus of this unit is the book of Zechariah. Zechariah looks back over Israel’s history and seeks to explain why Jerusalem was overcome by the Babylonian empire. At the same time, Zechariah looks towards the fulfilment of the hopes of the earlier prophets for the establishment of God’s glorious kingdom, the kingdom that ultimately comes in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Zechariah is not the easiest book to understand, but it will certainly repay thoughtful work. Zechariah is the prophet quoted most often in the passion narratives of the Gospels. His book helps us to appreciate Jesus’ work even more and what it means to live in the light of his kingdom.
