Dr. John Whitcomb: February 9, 2015

The latter part of Zechariah 9 contains a well-known prophecy that touches on both the first and second comings of Christ. Our study of it this week is entitled, “The King and His Covenant.” Host Wayne Shepherd, armed with the reminder that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end, helps to prepare us to hear Dr. John Whitcomb as he continues Part 3 of his series, “Zechariah: The LORD Remembers.” In this installment, he explores aspects of Christ’s coming kingdom and shows how God’s covenant promises outline His plans for this time of future renewal. Middletown Bible Church in Middletown, Connecticut, has made it possible for us to bring these messages to you, and we thank them for their generosity. We trust that this program will help you to draw closer to Christ, who became our sacrifice for sin and who will come again to reign in that day.
