Discussion for Zechariah 8

    Zechariah was zealous to build God's house of pure worship.

    Jews come from the House of Judah (JUH-dah; JEW). The House of Judah was the tribes of Benjamin and Judah. The House of Israel was scattered amongst the nations after being taken captive in Assyria. Essentially if you believe in Christ you are thus grafted in as part of Israel. Christianity today does not preach this message, for they believe the OT is rendered obsolete, which is absolutely false.

    Verse 23 - this is clear proof of the truth of Judaism - in times of messiah why are all the nations going to the Jews saying G-d is with them. Obviously because their's was, is and always will be the only true religion - this will only become clear in the messianic era!!

    In verse 19 the months are the Jewish feast months. The most important point in verse 19 is in the last part that "Truth comes before Peace ". Which we know will not come until the Prince of Peace comes back at the second advent. Verse 23 is a prophetic verse of the Gentile Nations in the Millenial Reign of Christ.
  • i want to know the information about the months mentioned here in this verse
