Zechariah Three: Joshua

God shows Zechariah Joshua, the high priest. In the vision, Joshua stands with an angel of God on one side of him, and Satan on the other. “And the Lord said to Satan: The Lord shall rebuke you, O Satan; and the Lord shall rebuke you, He who chose Jerusalem. Is this one not a brand plucked from fire (Zechariah 3:2)?” Meanwhile, Joshua wears rags as he stands before the angel, who orders the garments be removed. The angel gives him new, clean clothes, and tells him that if he walks in God’s ways, he will be rewarded with miracles. We don’t know much about this Joshua, other than that he’s the high priest, and why he gets this treatment. We’ll see if he factors further into the Zechariah story starting tomorrow!
