“Now the prophets, Haggai the prophet and Zechariah, the son of Iddo, prophesied to the Jews who were in Judea and Jerusalem, in the Name of the God of Israel to them (Ezra 5:1).” So clearly there’s a crossover between different books of Tanakh, as both Haggai and Zechariah are blasts from the past, meaning that there are multiple perspectives to the story that are unfolding over time. When I teach my students about the idea of multiple narratives, I like to use optical illusions to demonstrate the concept of two realities existing in the same space. In this picture, for example, there’s a woman. Some might see an old woman, some a young woman, and some have the capacity to see both. All of these realities are true, but each of us brings our own baggage that impacts which reality we’re able to recognize. So even in Tanakh, we need to hear the story from multiple angles in order to get the full story of this era of history.
