A brief commentary on Zechariah 12
Zechariah is an Old Testament prophetic book that portrays the coming glory of the MESSIAH. Many scholars describe Zechariah as "the most Messianic of all the Old Testament books" because it contains eight specific references to the Messiah in its brief 14 chapters.
The 14 chapters of Zechariah fall naturally into two major sections: chapters 1-8, the prophet's encouragement to the people to finish the work of rebuilding the Temple, and chapters 9-14, Zechariah's picture of Israel's glorious future and the coming of the Messiah.
The second major section of Zechariah's book, chapters 9-14, contains God's promises for the new age to come.
Like the Book of Revelation, Zechariah closes on the theme of the universal reign of God. All nations will come to worship Him as He extends His rule throughout the world.(from Nelson's Illustrated Bible Dictionary, Copyright © 1986, Thomas Nelson Publishers)
