    Reading various commentaries on this chapter, most seem to run into a problem in interpreting the prophet described in this chapter. There are some aspects that point to this being a false prophet and others that seem to make reference to Christ. In my opinion, from v2 to the end to the end of v4 the bible is describing a false prophet. Then there is a transition in beginning of v5 following the word "But,,," where the bible is comparing and contrasting the false prophet to another, who is not a prophet, but actually Christ.
    - He is not a prophet, but the Good Shepherd.
    - The wounds in his hand are from the cross.
    - The sword was from God, who used the Roman soldier.

    Any thoughts?
  • People keep saying this is for the Israel. Who do you think Israel is today; where did the ten tribes go? And weren't the gentiles adopted into the tribes of Israel.
    Paul makes repeated references to adoption into the house of Israel through faith: "But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his" (Romans 8:9). And again: "Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises" (Romans 9:4).

    Jesus said Matthew 15:24 - But he (Jesus) answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
    John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I (Jesus) know them, and they follow me:
    Galations 3: 28 - There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
    Jeremiah 3:8 - And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away,
    and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.
    29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

    I enjoy this because many in school for theology may say that this was only speaking about the children of Israel and the Covenant that the Father had with them .

    Many People Believe They are Saved and Going to Heaven Because They Said a Prayer or baptize in Water. We are Baptized With The Holy Ghost(Mark 1:8) When The Father Calls( John 6:44) and We Ask Forgiveness(1John 1:9) The Lord Will Wash Us in His Own Blood(Revelation 1:5) We Will be Changed(2 Corinthians 5:17) You Will Know and Others Around You. It's Impossible Not to Know. The Change is WOW: 180

    I think so as well. People want to wait until they are right in order to come to God. By then it may be to late. God wants us to come just the way we are and has nothing to do with our outer appearance.

    13-9 where only a 1 3 part will remain leaves me breathless because no one I examine this with seems to understand the necessity for getting right with God NOW because our time remaining available for repentance is limited. Your thoughts.

    he's talking only about the children of Israel here, not the other nations because he is only dealing with Israel Amos 3:2
  • ALEX on Zechariah 13
    That was the great promise i will MULTIPLY THY SEED AS THE STARS OF HEAVEN THIS PROMISE CAME AFTER ISAAC WAS OFFERED UP Genesis 22. BUT THE OFFERING UP OF CHRIST BY HIS FATHER WILL INITIATE THE MULTIPLICATION OF CHRIST THATS Y ZECK IS SAYING SMITE THE SHEPERD AND THE SHEEP WILL BE SCATTERED THEN I WILL TURN MY HAND TO THE LIL ONES WHICH IMPLIES MULTIPLICATION OF CHRIST WHEN A SEED DIES IT MULTIPLIES.

    Verses 4-6~This prophecy foretells a time in the future when many will not claim their involvement in religion. Formerly religious people will deny their religious course.
  • Mari on Zechariah 13
    Verse 6 talks of Christ. When he was nailed to the cross. Those are the scars in his hands. He's talking to Israel.
  • Jeferdma on Zechariah 13
    I don't know Les, but go by the KJV it's always right !!
  • Here is one for you. Why does it state in the KJV "What are these wounds in thine hands? " and in the NIV it states "What are these wounds in thing back "? I know they are talking about the false prophet and the ritual scares related to pagan practices that his friends gave him. I don t get the mix up of hands and back. Why does the KJV say hands? Big difference between the two.
