Zechariah is a powerful Old Testament text that displays some of the most remarkable prophecies about Jesus. Michael R Stead brings the message of this seventh-century prophet to life in his expert but easy-to-understand style. Zechariah is a word of encouragement to us to keep clinging tightly to the word of God in the midst of difficult and disheartening circumstances. Readers will find that this commentary is written in such a way as to show that Zechariah’s message is even more vibrant and effective today than it was for its original audience.
Michael Stead is the Bishop of South Sydney, was previously the Rector of St James Anglican Church, Turramurra, and is a visiting lecturer at Moore Theological College. Michael completed his doctoral research on the book of Zechariah through the University of Gloucestershire in 2007 and has continued to be fascinated by it ever since.
