John Whitcomb: November 27, 2017

God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end—and we come to the end of the book of Zechariah on this week’s installment of “Encounter God’s Truth.” Old Testament scholar Dr. John Whitcomb has taken us all the way through this great book from the Minor Prophets in a series we call, “Zechariah: The LORD Remembers.” Zechariah is left untouched by so many people. But we have spent much of this year going back over the highlights of the book, also adding in some new material here in Part 5. In this lesson our speaker deals with the closing verses of Zechariah 14—the conclusion to this book that we have come to know and love through our time together in it. Host Wayne Shepherd encourages you to join us for this important message—and Whitcomb Ministries also hopes that you will share what you learn with a friend. We present this teaching with thanks to Middletown Bible Church in Middletown, Conn., where Dr. Whitcomb first delivered it at a conference. We are so glad for the opportunity that the Lord has given us to bring this material to a much greater audience.
