God's Message of Triumph

Part 4 of Haggai

God's message to Zerubbabel (2:20-23) points forward to Jesus Christ:
  • "Son of Shealtiel": Jesus (as to His human nature) is a descendent of King David through Shealtiel.
  • "My Servant": Jesus is Isaiah's "Servant of the Lord."
  • "Chosen": Jesus is the "Messiah," which means "chosen one."
  • "Signet Ring": Jesus will reverse the curse on King Jehoiachin and reign as King of kings.
