Old Testament


Zechariah, fourteen chapters of prophecy,
Glimpses the soon-coming Messiah constantly.
Writ to Jews back home from exile in Babylon,
It prophesies Jerusalem's restoration.
Visions of Jesus as Joshua, King-Priest, see,
Nicknamed "God's servant the Branch", chapters six and three.
Nine His entry to Jerusalem, on ass, joins,
Eleven: His betrayed cost: 30 silver coins.
Twelve: He's One pierced by the Jews, Whom they view, mourning;
Thirteen, for them, He becomes sin's Cleansing Fountain,
God's smitten Shepherd and Fellow. Fourteen's news:
End-times, He'll On Mount of Olives fight for the Jews.
