Opening up Zechariah

Roger EllsworthSKU: OUZech2310 ISBN: 9781846252310



The Jewish people had been called by God to rebuild the temple in Jerusalem after their years of captivity in Babylon. After starting well, they laid the work aside. But then they heard a voice that emphasized the sufficiency of God for his people. That voice, belonging to Zechariah, was never more encouraging and stimulating than when it proclaimed the coming Christ and the glories awaiting those who trust him. Zechariah's prophecy still speaks today with power to those who are deeply discouraged and sorely distressed. Its message of Christ medicates every ill and lifts every heart.

In this simple little book, Roger Ellsworth has once again put Christians in his debt. He gives a clear explanation of Zechariah’s often obscure & strange message, setting it in the original context & in the full tapestry of redemption, with central reference to the person & work of Christ. Everything is there in seed, & this book proves to be a useful tool to help Christians become familiar with this prophet & with the message of the Bible. It is also a solid stepping stone towards more detailed books for those who have been called to instruct the people of God. Thoroughly reliable, refreshing and uplifting!
—Jean-Claude Souillot, missionary to the French-speaking world, Managing Director of Europresse

Roger Ellsworth’s books are always clearly written & interesting to read, ‘Opening up Zechariah’ is no exception. We ought to read Zechariah because this ‘prophecy includes more promises of Messiah than any other book except Isaiah’. Ellsworth explains how prophecy can relate to current or future events but ultimately directs us to Jesus Christ. Ellsworth’s focus is not on divisive prophetic speculation but on Christ.
—Stan K Evers, pastor of Potton Baptist Church, Bedfordshire, UK, and editor of Grace Magazine

This book really does open up Zechariah. Preachers will find it helpful with message preparation, even though it is not a verse by verse commentary. All believers could use it with profit as part of their daily devotions.
