Zechariah Chaps 9 to 14. Luke 1:26 – 56.

With the groundwork done in the first half of Zechariah, the remainder of his message is focused on the coming Messiah. Chapters 9 & 10 focus on the personal nature of the King, not just His presence as a national figurehead. He will be the one to bring righteousness, salvation and peace to the ends of the earth. Yet, rejection will still be very real (chp. 11). But that’s not the end because chapters 12-14 focus on nothing being able to stop the cry of “Let the King reign” being thwarted. Zechariah’s prophecy highlights that the coming King – Jesus – will show the world the full extent of God’s love. See how all that will come into place – Luke 1:26-50 – through the servant heart of the one who will say, “I am the Lord’s servant. May it be to me as You have said”.
