What is this book about?
While God promises to be with His people during the years following their return to exile, both protecting them from without and purifying them from within, a greater salvation than they have ever dreamed of is on the horizon.
 
How does it point to Jesus?
Jesus Christ is the High Priest who sits on the throne of not just Israel, but of the whole world. The kingdoms of the world have become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ. And through His reign, He has brought salvation to the nations of men.
