Elizabeth: From Disgrace to Praise

December 4, 2012

Elizabeth: From Disgrace to Praise We have spent the past two days examining the character of Zechariah, the priest who encountered an angel.

Shedding Shame

January 30, 2016

In our reading today from Zechariah, Satan stood ready for the kill. His victim was undeniably tarnished and without defense. The main character in Zechariah’s prophetic vision was his post-exilic contemporary, the high priest Joshua, sullied from working in the trenches alongside Nehemiah.
