Advent Meditation Week 2

December 6: Zechariah 6:12-13

  • Who is “the branch”? Compare Isaiah 11:1 and Jer. 23:5.
  • How does v. 13 relate to the description of Jesus in Heb. 4:14-16 & 8:1? How and why does Jesus merge the roles of priest and king? What will characterize the relationship between church and state in Jesus’ ultimate reign (v. 13)? 
  • Have you received Jesus’ peace? See John 14:27.

Zechariah 6:12-13English Standard Version (ESV)

12 And say to him, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts, “Behold, the man whose name is the Branch: for he shall branch out from his place, and he shall build the temple of the Lord. 13 It is he who shall build the temple of the Lord and shall bear royal honor, and shall sit and rule on his throne. And there[a] shall be a priest on his throne, and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.”’
