ZECHARIAH (ca. 520 B.C.E.).

Eleventh of the Minor Prophets. Like his contemporary the prophet Haggai, Zechariah lived and preached in Jerusalem after the return from the Babylonian exile. He too urged the rebuilding of the Temple and prophesied the coming of the Messiah. His visions are mystic revelations replete with symbolic figures: horses, craftsmen, a golden candlestick, a flying scroll, and Satan in the role of an accusing angel.
