4.0 out of 5 stars A goldmine of information on post-exilic Israel, 3 Oct 2005
By 
Kurt A. Johnson (Marseilles, IL USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Haggai, Zechariah (NIV Application Commentary S.) (Hardcover)
The post-exilic books of the Old Testament are often overlooked by Christian. In this book, Dr. Mark J. Boda seeks to bring the books of Haggai and Zechariah to life for the Christian reader. In the introduction to the two Biblical books, the author lays out the cultural context in which the books were written, and places the books within what was happening among the Jews in contemporary Palestine.
Dr. Boda rejects the view of some theologians that some of Zechariah's visions point forward toward a suffering messiah, instead seeing them as condemnations of contemporary Jewish leadership, with the experiences of Jesus being seen as a mere "reenactment" of the Jewish exile (see page 515). Also, he argues that the church is the new Israel, and that as such any prophecy suggesting future events for the Jews must be interpreted as applying to the church, the "True Israel," and not contemporary or future Jews. "There is a future for the Jewish community, but not apart from Jesus and his gospel." (P.57)
So, overall, I found this to be a very interesting book. Dr. Boda is a very knowledgeable man, and his book is a goldmine of information on post-exilic Israel.

This review is from: Haggai, Zechariah (NIV Application Commentary S.) (Hardcover)
I have only used this book to study Zechariah and it is helpful and quite detailed. A very helpful commentary on a neglected book of the Bible - I was intrigued to discover that the gospel passion narratives quote Zechariah more than any other Prophet.
