The priest and martyr, Zechariah, was the greatest of the post-exilic prophets. His visions and prophecies—which center on the coming of the Messiah, his final conflict with hostile “Gentile” powers, and the triumph of his eternal Kingdom—are among the most mysterious and difficult in all Scripture. As such, they have proved to be a fertile field for speculation and controversy.
Can we arrive at solid, trustworthy interpretations of Zechariah’s deeply symbolic language? Are there any NT principles by which we may be guided into such certainty? While amillennarians acknowledge that agreement in all the details is not always possible, they believe that NT eschatology does indeed supply us with the keys for a sound understanding of the prophet’s message.
In this section of our website we offer articles written from that point of view, and in that very confidence.
