Zechariah

Unique and Unusual

Zechariah’s prophecy of the Messiah riding a donkey into Jerusalem (9:9) was fulfilled to the letter in Jesus’ “triumphal entry” (Matthew 21:1-11).  The prophecy “They shall look upon me whom they have pierced” (12:10) refers to the Roman soldiers’ spearing of Christ after the crucifixion (John 19:34).
