Zech 11:15–17

11:15–17 With the rejection of the Good Shepherd, worthless leaders take His place (cf. Ezek. 34:1–10). The loss of “arm” and “right eye” indicates the loss of power and insight necessary for leadership (v. 17). Some suggest that this prophecy refers to the Jewish leaders who led the nation into disastrous rebellions against Rome after the death of Christ (a.d. 66–74, 132–35).
