Zechariah 14 and Monty Python’s Holy Hand Grenade

The second half of Zechariah is probably the most difficult section of the Bible to understand. I am convinced that we never will figure out some of it. Because of this difficulty there are some sections that sound particularly humorous. For instance, Zechariah 14:20-21 reminds me of something from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I hope that doesn’t sound sacrilegious:

“In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD; and the pots in the LORD’s house shall be like the bowls before the altar. Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts.” – Zech 14:20-21

  2. Jason says:

    “First shalt thou take out the holy pin then thou shalt count to three. No more no less. Three shall the number thou shalt count and the number of the counting shall be three.”

    Can’t get enough!!!
