As Alexander the Great marched through Persia, Zechariah painted a picture of a very different king.
The conquest of many lands by Alexander the Great was marked by the cry of war and, of course, Alexander’s trusty warhorse, Bucephalus.
But years later there was to be an altogether different king. Riding through streets once trode by the aforementioned Alexander, but this time on a colt.
One king was met with swords; the other, palms.
One: the king of war. The other: prince of peace.
