Welcome to our detailed exposition of the Book of Zechariah!
In the second year reign of Darius, God raised up Haggai the prophet to encourage the Jews in rebuilding the temple. Haggai preached four sermons in four months and then disappeared from the scene. Two months after Haggai delivered his first sermon, Zechariah began his prophetic ministry, encouraging the people to spiritual renewal and motivating them to rebuild the temple by revealing to them God’s plans for Israel’s future. With this prophetic encouragement the people completed the temple reconstruction in 516 B.C. The dated portions of Zechariah’s prophecy fall within the period of the rebuilding of the temple. The undated prophecies of Zechariah 9–14 was most likely written much later in his ministry.
