After the return of the Jews to Jerusalem, the people struggled to restore their city to its former glory. Similar to Haggai, the book of Zechariah was written at this time to urge the Judeans to rebuild their temple and redeem themselves with God. Zechariah has a more encouraging and hopeful tone than Haggai, and contains some of the most descriptive and beautiful Messianic prophecies in the Bible.
