Zechariah 10:4

There are many types of Christ in the Bible—The Passover Lamb; the Noah’s ark; manna in the wilderness; the tabernacle; the brazen Serpent; Jonah in the whale, etc.

In Zechariah 10:4 are three types of Christ. “Out of him” is the tribe of Judah (v. 3). Out of Judah would come Jesus as “the corner… the nail… the battle bow…”

I. The Corner, to SQUARE the building.

A. IMPORTANCE—The cornerstone was the most important part of the building. It would be the starting point of the building.
