19.1. Zechariah and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse

There are similarities between the horsemen associated with the first four seals which John sees (Rev. Rev. 6:1-8+) and two visions given Zechariah which also concern horses. Zechariah’s first vision concerns riders astride colored horses (Zec. Zec. 1:7-11). His eighth vision concerns chariots drawn by colored horses (Zec. Zec. 6:1-8). The visions of both Zechariah and John concern: (1) horses; (2) of varied colors; (3) with riders; (4) which ride forth to various destinations.
