Explaining Zechariah 8:23


Jack, would you explain Zechariah 8:23?


Zechariah 8:23 says

This is what the Lord Almighty says: “In those days ten people from all languages and nations will take firm hold of one Jew by the hem of his robe and say, ‘Let us go with you, because we have heard that God is with you.’”

From reading the previous 22 verses, we can see that this is a Millennial passage. We can also see that Israel will be blessed by God in remarkable ways. All the Millennial believers on earth will want to share in that blessing, and so they will look to find a Jewish person they can befriend.  That’s what verse 23 is talking about.
