Dr. John Whitcomb: March 7, 2016

We are heading toward the conclusion of the book of Zechariah on this week’s edition of “Encounter God’s Truth” with Dr. John Whitcomb. This book includes many intricate prophecies given to God’s people in Judah following their return from exile in Babylon—that exile being described in the books of Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Daniel, and the return being documented in the book of Ezra. This glorious closing chapter of Zechariah deals with the events surrounding the second coming of Jesus Christ to earth to rule from the throne of David for a thousand years. You will want to catch every detail, so listen with your Bible opened to Zechariah 14 if you can. This message was first presented before a conference at Middletown Bible Church in Middletown, Connecticut. Host Wayne Shepherd expresses our thanks that we can bring it to you here for the purpose of explaining in depth how God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end. Please share this program with all who will listen—while there is still time to do so!
