We are excited to announce the new Road Map class that we will be leading this Fall: an eight-week course on the book of Zechariah.
Set in the post-exilic era, this book of prophecy recounts the word of the Lord as presented to the prophet Zechariah. It takes place during a time when the rest of the world is in peace, but Jerusalem lies in chaos.
The majority of God’s people had remained back in the land of their captivity; only a remnant returned to Jerusalem. The walls of Jerusalem are destroyed, Solomon’s splendid temple is only partially rebuilt.
It is a period of great sorrow for the returning Israelites. The people of that day were very much in need of a word of encouragement. Much like the people of our great nation today. This makes the message in Zechariah especially relevant to the church today.
The class begins September 3, 2013. Tuesday nights, 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
