Legends of Old Testament Characters/Chapter 44

XLIV.

ZECHARIAH.

SOZOMEN[1] relates that the prophet Zechariah appeared to Colomeras, a farmer of the village of Chupher, in Palestine, and revealed to him his tomb; and on excavations having been made on the spot, an ancient Hebrew book was discovered, which, however, was not regarded as canonical. Nicephoras repeats the story after Sozomen.[2]
