Did Zechariah really see visions? This question cannot be definitely answered, so the idea must remain a hypothesis. Here, Tiemeyer shows that this hypothesis is nonetheless reasonable and instrumental in shedding light on matters in Zechariah's vision report that are otherwise unclear. Tracking through each verse of the text, the key exegetical problems are covered, including the topics of the distinction between visions and dreams, dream classification, conflicting sources of evidence for dream experiences, and rhetorical imagery as opposed to dream experience. Further attention is focused on the transmission of the divine message to Zechariah, with the key question raised of whether a visual or oral impression is described. The impact of how the text would be received had an effect on how the text was written, so that the seer, in an effort to convey the experience to his readers, described a three-tier reality and, in a trance state, Zechariah communicates with the Interpreting Angel, while also receiving glimpses of a deeper reality, also known as the 'visionary world.'
