Not saying we are instating Zerubavel because he is the continuation of Malchut David.

Chaggai 1-2 is about Messianism. The Geulah will come through Zerubavel because Hashem

Zerubavel was ben David- we will always have a gaping void because he did not restore the
grandeur and we don’t have the throne of David
Now, the leaders are not evil. They are appointed by Hashem
The Leaders of EZ told the nation this is what our reality is now and put a positive spin on

These people claim to be Jews, said they were kicked out of their land and then brought back in
the 680s by Sargon, moved to the now vacant North. How did they end up in the north? After 70 years of exile, they shifted to the empty land. Or they could have been people from Yehudah
