There are several Messianic passages in the book of Zechariah: – A description of Joshua and Zerubbabel suddenly changes to the prediction of a greater individual known as the “Servant” and “Branch.”
- The coming Messiah “comes triumphant and victorious, but humble and riding on a donkey — on a colt” (Zechariah 9:9). He also comes to “make peace among the nations” (9:10).
- Finally, there is a description of the good shepherd who is willing to lay down his life for the sheep.
What do all of these passages suggest about the character of the coming Messiah?
