The book of Haggai starts by mentioning king Darius. Is this the same King Darius who knew Daniel? Nope! That King Darius was king over the Assyrians who were conquered by the Persians. This King Darius was the king of the Persian empire who succeeded the throne after the son of King Cyrus (who had let the Israelites go free) died. (Source 1, Source 2)

    1. New Jerusalem in America (Ether 13:4; D&C 84:2-4) which will be in Independence, Jackson County, Missouri
    2. New Jerusalem in Old Jerusalem (Zechariah 8:3-6; Ether 13:5; 3 Nephi 20:22, 46; 21:23-24)

Zechariah 14:20-21 talks about the phrase HOLINESS TO THE LORD being on the bells of horses and on cooking pots. What does this mean? Zechariah was emphasizing that even the most mundane and common items will bear witness of Christ and be under Christ’s influence after the Second Coming.
