Zerubbabel is a type of Christ. We can thus learn about Christ in him.
Zerubbabel was of the tribe of Judah. So was Jesus.
Zerubbabel was in the line of David and thus entitled to kingly rule. So was Jesus.
Because of Israel’s state of decline, Zerubbabel did not reign with David’s earthly glory. Neither did Jesus.
Nonetheless, Zerubbabel became governor of the people of God. As did Jesus.
Zerubbabel had to deal with serious contention from God’s enemies. Jesus encountered even greater opposition.
Zerubbabel laid the foundation of a new temple. Jesus laid the foundation of a temple in the spirit that would last for all eternity.
Zerubbabel lived to celebrate the completion of his work. Jesus lives forever to celebrate the completion of His eternal work.
It was a matter for rejoicing when the plumb line was in the hand of Zerubbabel. It is a matter of unspeakable glory that the measuring stick for all humanity is in the hand of Jesus.
If the day of small things was not to be despised when Zerubbabel began his work, how much more so when Jesus laid the foundation for an entire new universe by planting Himself in the ground as a single seed.
The purpose of this blog is to praise Jesus Christ in biblical terms.
