Zechariah 9.9-17 – February 17, 2020

Zechariah 9.9-17

Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion!
Shout, Daughter Jerusalem!
See, your king comes to you,
righteous and victorious,
lowly and riding on a donkey,
on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
(Zechariah 9:9, NIV)

The coming king comes to us in humility, riding on a donkey (not a powerful stallion!) and brings to us peace.

Thought Questions:

Describe the image one might expect of a conquering king entering into the land he just conquered. How does this compare or contrast to what you see from the passage we read here?

In what ways does Jesus bring peace into your life?

In what ways can your life bring peace to others?
