The books of Ezra and Nehemiah (and Esther) cover about 100 years, closing the Old Testament historical books. The books of Samuel, Kings, and Chronicles closed with the Southern Kingdom (Judah)'s going into captivity. The two post-exile books of Ezra and Nehemiah record the return from Babylon after its fall to the Persians under Cyrus, the rebuilding of the temple and Jerusalem, and the reestablishment of the national life of Israel. This study contains eight hours of verse-by-verse teachings. Ezra 1-3 - Decree of Cyrus permits Jews to return to Jerusalem to rebuild the temple; the altar is set up and sacrifice restored; the foundations of the temple are laid. Ezra 4-7 - Nehemiahs unselfish example; the rebuilding is opposed; the temple is completed; Ezra is introduced. Ezra 8-10 - Ezra sends for the Levites and Nethinim; Ezra proclaims a fast for the Lord's protection; God's people fail to separate from surrounding nations; reconciliation to God through confession and separation. Nehemiah 1-2 - Nehemiah prays for Israel and makes his request of King Artaxerxes. Nehemiah 3-5 - The rebuilding begins. A defense against a conspiracy: poverty and famine. Nehemiah 6-8 - False rumors about Nehemiah; walls finished; a list of those who returned; the law is read. Nehemiah 9-11 - Ezra's prayer; the covenant signed; the repopulation of Jerusalem. Nehemiah 12-13 - Establishment of priests and Levites; dedication of the city walls; Nehemiahs reforms. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chuck Missler.

As we rebuild the temple in Ezra, so we rebuild Jerusalem in Nehemiah. Ezra and Nehemiah work together, priest and layman, to complete God’s work—and you will not find two more different characters in all of Scripture. When Ezra learns that the Israelite leaders have been unfaithful to God, he sits on the ground appalled and pulls out the hairs of his beard; when Nehemiah hears the same message, he gathers the leaders together, sits them on the ground, and he pulls out the hairs of their beards! Both Ezra and Nehemiah are great stories, and no one tells them like Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy. 1. Language: English. Narrator: uncredited.
