The Bible Challenge: Day 351

The scriptures read are Zechariah 3-4, Psalm 135 and Mark 13.

Zechariah 3. A vision of the high priest at that time shows him dressed in filthy clothes before God and accused by the Adversary (the meaning of "Satan") of doing so. But God orders Joshua redressed in spotless clothes. He is charged to keep doing the right thing.

Not sure what the jewel represents but notice the number 7 (its eyes--facets?). The Branch is a messianic designation. Who does it refer to?

Zechariah 4. This vision is of a menorah (7 branched candelabra) and 2 olive trees. Governor Zerubbabel is rebuilding the temple and one wonders if he and the high priest Joshua aren't those referred to by the 2 olive trees.

Psalm 135. You may not understand Serbian but you should love this chant and the scenes in the video.

Mark 13. To read my reflections on this chapter, click here.
