The prophet Zechariah prophesies to the beleaguered returnees from Babylon. Zechariah’s message is, “My house shall be built” for the temple that God dwells in is not made with hands. He uses dozens of images that display the beauty of God’s kingdom as reasons for the people to finish rebuilding the temple in Jerusalem, which they have neglected for the past sixteen years.

The book of Zechariah is a beautifully-crafted poem that graphically illustrates the love of God for His people. Zechariah’s name means, “the Lord remembers.” Though the people sinned greatly, God preserved a remnant. The Old Testament does not end in captivity but in the restoration of His people and the providing of a vision for future glory.
