It is generally agreed within Hebrew Bible scholarship that Zechariah 9-14 is filled with allusions to other books within the Hebrew canon. Rex Mason's doctoral dissertation in the early 1970s contributed significantly to the foundation of this consensus. However, although Mason's thesis remains a seminal work for those studying Deutero-Zechariah, it has never been published. This volume contains a publication of that work together with reflections from leading biblical scholars who have published on Zechariah 9-14. The volume is rounded off with a response by Mason to these scholars and a reflection on his own contribution. In some ways this project is a replication of the social process that gave rise to Zechariah 9-14, as the multiple authors bring out of this treasure that which is new and that which is old.
Mark Boda (Ph.D., Cambridge University) is Professor of Old Testament at McMaster Divinity College, Hamilton, Ontario. Mark joined the College in 2003 after teaching for nine years at Canadian Theological Seminary. He has authored four books, edited seven volumes of collected essays, and written over 45 articles on various topics related to the Old Testament and Christian Theology.
Key areas of interest include prayer and penitence in the Old Testament and Christian Theology and Babylonian and Persian Period Hebrew Books and History (Ezra, Nehemiah, Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi, Lamentations, Jeremiah).
Mark enjoys mentoring students and teaches with enthusiasm about the Old Testament and its continued relevance to the Christian life today. This is evident in the sound biblical exegesis and application in all of his commentaries: Zechariah-Haggai (NIVAC, Zondervan); 1 & 2 Chronicles (NLT, Tyndale); Judges (EBC, Zondervan); Zechariah (NICOT, Eerdmans); Ezra-Nehemiah (TOTC, InterVarsity); Penitence in Biblical Theology (NSBT, InterVarsity Press) and LXX Psalms (LXXC, Brill).
