The Bible Challenge: Day 358

The scriptures read are Zechariah 12, and Psalm 141 and Luke 3.

Zechariah 12. I hope you're picking up on the Messianic imagery in Zechariah. In the last chapter we had the 30 pieces of silver. (Judas' price for betrayal, remember?) In this we have the famous "they will look to me, the one they have pierced." That's God talking. And seeing what happened to Jesus, eerily appropriate.

Otherwise this chapter is about the Day of the Lord and God protecting and restoring his people. Underlined is his concern for the little people.

Psalm 141. An interesting and dramatic choral setting of this psalm.

Luke 3. To read my reflections on this chapter, click here.
