"God does not always act in such an unusual manner, but he is always concerned for the welfare of his children. This is the message of the first two chapters of the Book of Zechariah. In these chapters God expresses his concern for the helpless and oppressed people of ancient Judah. Zechariah begins with a call to repentance (which the people heed) and follows with three fascinating visions, each conveying in some manner God's care for his people. Zechariah's message of God's care was written not only for the Jews of twenty-five hundred years ago but for believers today." - Stephen Miller
One of the well-known stories regarding the life of Jesus is his meeting with the Jewish religious leader Nicodemus, recorded in the third chapter of John’s Gospel.
