Zechariah Chapter 3

Zechariah 3:1

zac 3:1


The fifth vision discloses:

(1) The change from self-righteousness to the righteousness of God

(See Scofield) - (Rom 3:21).

of which Paul's experience, (Phi 3:1-9) is the illustration, as it is also the foreshadowing of the conversion of Israel.

(2) In type, the preparation of Israel for receiving Jehovah's "BRANCH"

(See Scofield) - (Isa 4:2).

The refusal of the Jews to abandon self-righteousness for the righteousness of God blinded them to the presence of the BRANCH in their midst at His first advent (Rom 10:1-4); (Rom 11:7); (Rom 11:8).

Compare (Zac 6:12-15) which speaks of the manifestation of the BRANCH in glory (Zac 3:13) as the Priest-King, when Israel will receive Him.

(See Scofield) - (Heb 5:6).


(See Scofield) - (Heb 1:4).
