NEHEMIAH SERIES

May 26, 2017

I just completed blogging the book of Ezra and I thought it was only fitting that I also do the book of Nehemiah since they were considered one book in the Hebrew bible until they were separated in the fifteenth century A.D.

It is believed that the book of Nehemiah was written by Ezra and Nehemiah and the recording of this book took place in the postexilic period of the Jewish history.

Thirteen years after the second group of Jews returned to Jerusalem, Nehemiah the cupbearer of King Artaxerxes of Persia travels there with his major concern being the political and geographical restoration of Jerusalem. He became the governor of Jerusalem from 444 to 432 B.C.at which time he returned to Persia and then came back to Jerusalem in 430 B.C. and resumed his post. Under his leadership the Jews experienced opposition; however, he did not allow it to deter them from accomplishing his God given assignment.

Both the books of Ezra and Nehemiah are a testament to what believers can accomplish with the help of God. As you read the blogs on Nehemiah I pray they will inspirer you to keep moving ahead despite what you see, hear, or feel. God richly bless you and may His hand rest heavily upon you.
