Michelangelo - 1508 Sistine Chapel - 05 Prophets Zechariah
Type of Spiritual Experience
Although the prophets Joel and Zechariah are considered "minor" because of the comparatively small number of pages that their prophecy occupies in the Bible, each one produced prophesies of profound significance.
Zechariah prophesied, "Behold! Your King comes to you, humble and riding on a donkey" His place in the chapel is directly above the door through which the Pope is carried in procession on Palm Sunday, the day on which Jesus fulfilled the prophecy by riding into Jerusalem on a donkey and being proclaimed King.
