This is answered under this question: hermeneutics.stackexchange.com/questions/2030/… - if you find the answer sufficient maybe this one can be deleted? Cheers. Made me think a bit.

comment The number two in the book of Zechariah
+1 - I think you guys are both right. One is unity, so two often means division, yet it can also mean 'a pair' like both side of the same thing. A man and a woman make a complete pair. Just as the law and the prophets both complete the basis for the Messiah. My brain would hurt to think about it any more, but I think Jon captured the idea.

comment What is the “first resurrection”?
Jesus always seemed to speak of a single ressurection and Revelations is too shaky to me as a single source for introducing new doctrines, that do not seem to fit the rest of scripture. This is why I think this view has a lot of strength.

comment Why is the man going to measure Jerusalem in Zechariah 2:2?
@Kazark - Thank you. You might find in interesting how jewish expectation saw the literal accomplishment of this glorious temple would be (below link). "The City itself would be lifted to a height of some nine miles" .etc See here: worthychristianlibrary.com/alfred-edersheim/…

comment Significance of the “Son of Man” appellation in Ezekiel
@GoneQuiet - Alfred Edersheim, Jewish Historian and professor 1800s has a section in his book on Messiah, WHAT MESSIAH DID THE JEWS EXPECT? P163. He is extensive in his references to ancient Rabbinic literature. Sample quote: 'They convey the idea, that the existence of this Messiah was regarded as premundane (before the moon, before the morning-star), and eternal, and His Person and dignity as superior to that of men and Angels: ‘the Angel of the Great Council,' probably ‘the Angel of the Face' - m.ccel.org/browse/bookInfo?id=edersheim/lifetimes. For ex, Mica 5:2 was Messianic.

comment What does it mean to lay down beside an altar (Amos 2:8)?
@JonEricson - good point, incense and libations better fit the context of drinking.
