Hard Questions

  1. (Zechariah 1:7-11) (520/519 BC)
  2. (Zech. 1:18-21)
  3. (Zech. 4:14) The two olive trees as two anointed ones: likely Joshua the high priest and Zerubbabel the governor, though they could also refer apocalyptically to the two unknown prophets at the end of the ages (G. Coleman Luck, Zechariah, 46)
  4. (Zech. 5:5-11)
  5. (Zech. 11:4-17)
  6. Observation on Daniel, Esther, Ezra, and Nehemiah—how frequently battles in this era are fought through political maneuvering than through armies. It’s a characteristic of life under an empire.
