A Message of Hope in the Midst of Despair (Zechariah 2:1-13)
The importance of such a message to the people of God in Zechariah’s day cannot be overstated. No longer an independent nation, the once magnificent city of Jerusalem was in ruins and the temple of God was still to be built. Deeply discouraged, they wondered if they had lost the favor of God forever. It was into these dire circumstances God sent Zechariah with a message of hope.
