John Whitcomb: May 8, 2017

On this week’s edition of “Encounter God’s Truth,” we open Part 5 of “Zechariah: The LORD Remembers.” In this new series we will rehearse some of the major points of this prophetic book, and we will also think about how they relate to several key themes of Bible prophecy in general.  In this first message of the series, we re-visit Dr. Whitcomb’s introductory remarks about Zechariah. If you are able, we encourage you to follow along in your own Bible as he gives the background about the place of this book both within its Old Testament context, and also within our understanding of Biblical prophecy.  Zechariah will teach us so much about the Lord’s still-future work in restoring the nation of Israel in the coming millennial kingdom—just as God has promised and His prophets have predicted. Although it is listed among the Minor Prophets, this is truly a great book. Join us each week of this series as host Wayne Shepherd assists Dr. Whitcomb in going back through it. Whitcomb Ministries expresses thanks to Middletown Bible Church in Middletown, Connecticut, for allowing us to broadcast today’s sermon, as it was first delivered live there. Remember, God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end!
