Our Perfect Priest and King 

Read Zechariah 6:12-13
Today’s Truth

This is one of those promises talking about the man whose name is the Branch. The Branch there, since you’re listening to this, just so you know it’s capitalized B, capital B, Branch which is a picture we see all throughout the Old Testament to refer to the kingly line of David. So this is talking about one who will come from the line of King David who will build the temple of the Lord and bear royal honor. This picture of a king to come who will rule on His throne and yet right after that in Verse 13, second part of Verse 13, it says, “And there shall be a priest on his throne and the council of peace be between them both.”

Discussion Question
  1. What does the Branch or Jesus mean to you?
  2. How does Jesus make a difference in your everyday life?
  3. What does it look like for you to daily walk with Jesus?
Life Application

You and I in our sin having rebelled against God, being separated from God, enemies of God, are brought to peace with God. How? By Jesus, our perfect high priest paying the price, Himself, not another sacrifice. He gives His life as a sacrifice for our sin. He’s the perfect high priest and the perfect king who rules and reigns over God’s people, bringing peace with him, the council of peace between them both.
