Commentary
Geneva Study Bible

Then take silver and gold, and make crowns, and set them upon the {m} head of Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest;

[1] crowns

Following the earth-judgments symbolized in the horsed chariots (Zech 6:1-8) comes the manifestation of Christ in His kingdom glory (Zech 6:9-15). This is the invariable prophetic order: first the judgments of the day of the Lord Isa 2:10-22 Rev 19:11-21 then the kingdom (cf) Ps 2:5 2:6 Isa 3:24-26 4:2-6 10:33,34 11:1-10 Rev 19:19-21 20:4-6. This is set forth symbolically by the crowning of Joshua, which was not a vision, but actually done (cf) Isa 8:3,4 Ezek 37:16-22. The fulfilment in the BRANCH will infinitely transcend the symbol. He "shall bear the glory" Zech 6:13 Mt 16:27 24:30 25:31 as the Priest-King on His own throne (Zech 6:12,13; Heb 7:1-3). Christ is now a Priest, but still in the holiest within the veil Lev 16:15 Heb 9:11-14,24 and seated on the Father's throne Rev 3:21. He has not yet come out to take His own throne Heb 9:28. The crowns made for the symbolical crowning of Joshua were to be laid up in the temple as a memorial to keep alive this larger hope of Israel.Zechariah 6:11 Parallel Commentaries

The Church Triumphant
More than eighteen centuries have passed since the apostles rested from their labors, but the history of their toils and sacrifices for Christ's sake is still among the most precious treasures of the church. This history, written under the direction of the Holy Spirit, was recorded in order that by it the followers of Christ in every age might be impelled to greater zeal and earnestness in the cause of the Saviour. The commission that Christ gave to the disciples, they fulfilled. As these messengers

The Allegory of Melchizedek.
HEBREWS vii. 1-28 (R.V.). "For this Melchizedek, King of Salem, priest of God Most High, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him, to whom also Abraham divided a tenth part of all (being first, by interpretation, King of righteousness, and then also King of Salem, which is, King of peace; without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like unto the Son of God), abideth a priest continually.

Grace unto you and peace be multiplied. I Pet 1:1.

Political, or peace in the state. Peace is the nurse of plenty. He maketh peace in thy borders,

Zechariah
CHAPTERS I-VIII Two months after Haggai had delivered his first address to the people in 520 B.C., and a little over a month after the building of the temple had begun (Hag. i. 15), Zechariah appeared with another message of encouragement.
