Archive for the ‘Book of Zechariah’ Category

I imagine many Christians can increase their knowledge of the Minor Prophets.  Here’s a survey of the eleventh book of the Minor Prophets: Zechariah.

Purpose: We will look at the authorship, purpose, structure and other aspects of the book of Zechariah so we would be more familiar with this part of the Bible and yearn to study it for ourselves.

Barrick

Dr. William Barrick is an Old Testament scholar that I have been much encouraged with (If you don’t know who he is see the short biography below after the videos).  Here’s a description of this conference:

The prophetic books of the Old Testament are some of the more difficult portions of the Bible for believers to understand and apply. They are often skipped in entirety or merely skimmed through. Yet at the same time some of our favorite prophetic passage about Jesus find their place in those books. How are we to understand the prophets? What relevance do they have for contemporary Christians? These, along with other questions will be answered during this seminar. As a focus to show how the principles work in real life, the focus will be the book of Zechariah.

He spoke for a conference called “Prophets in the Life of a Believers” that focuses on prophecy at Word of Grace Church in Battle Ground, WA.  While it took place last fall it was only recently that Dr. Barrick shared this on his website.

God Remembers A Study of Zechariah Charles Feinberg

This book is a good commentary that I used as a devotional through the Prophetic book of Zechariah.  The title plays on the meaning of the name Zechariah which in the Hebrew means “God remembers.” This is an appropriate title for a commentary on the book of Zechariah since God has not forgotten His people.  God Remembers is the first book-length work that I read from the author and I totally enjoyed it.  Having tasted this book as a sort of “first fruit,” I plan to read other works by Charles Feinberg in the near future.  I can see why Charles Feinberg was a popular Old Testament professor.  The book of Zechariah has a lot of Messianic prophecies and I really appreciated this commentary pointing them out.  It has good details and insights that I didn’t see from an initial reading of Zechariah.  There are also wonderful exegetical nuggets in the book for Bible expositors and teachers as well.  My favorite part of the book was the discussion on Zechariah chapters twelve and thirteen in which Christ’s second coming is anticipated.  Towards the end of the book the author also had a short list titling each chapter of Zechariah and how it points towards Christ.  I definitely recommend this book.

You can order this book on Amazon.
