      The johannine passion is very dependent on this section of Zechariah - not
      only in the '/Behond the Man' section but also the naming of the one to
      build the Temple as - the Branch - Tzamah. This is the allusion behind the
      title given to Jesus by Pilate - Jesus the Nazarene - which comes from the
      same Hebrew root as the netzer in Isaiah 11. Jesus is the messianic Temple
      builder and on the cross his words in John 2 are fulfilled - one Temple is
      destroyed and another raised up -

      check this out in my book God Dwells with us - Temple Symbolism in the
      Fourth Gospel - Liturgical Press, 2001. Chapters 8 and 9.
