Resumen

O'KENNEDY, Daniel F.. Key Themes in Zechariah 1-8. Old testam. essays [online]. 2019, vol.32, n.1, pp.215-228. ISSN 2312-3621.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17159/2312-3621/2019/v32n1a12.

The discussion of key themes or the message of Zechariah 1-8 is neglected in commentaries that were published during the past five years. This article focuses on this neglected part of Zechariah research and investigates the following key themes: YHWH's di vine presence and the rebuilding of the temple in Zion; The lordship and sovereignty of YHWH; Sin and punishment/judgment; Turn to YHWH (repentance) and obedience; YHWH's return, grace, love and forgiveness; Realized eschatology and future hope; Israel and the nations; and Leadership. One cannot really say that there are any unique themes in Zechariah 18 or that the author/s had one central theme in mind. There are many similarities with other books in the OT, especially the post-exilic prophetic books. However, we must acknowledge that Zechariah 1-8 places more emphasis on certain themes and discusses them in a unique way.

Palabras clave : Themes; Message; Zechariah 1-8.
