Answer: Both. The prophet Zechariah is the second last prophet in the Old Testament.

Zacharias is mentioned in Luke chapter 1 in the New Testament as the father of John the Baptist. In terms of language due to the way "a" and "e" are transliterated from Hebrew (Old Testament) to Greek (New Testament) which is then translated into English, it is worth recognising that the two names are equivalent
