Zechariah is “the most messianic, the most truly apocalyptic and eschatalogical of all the writings of the Old Testament.”1 There are 41 New Testament citations or allusions to Zechariah’s book2

Zechariah was a Levite born in Babylon (Nehemiah 12:1,16). Zechariah gives a series of eight prophetic dreams-visions he saw in a single night! We will read those today. (Zechariah 1:7 – 6:8).

Read Zechariah 1:1 – 7:14
