A Study of Nehemiah
“Remember the instruction You gave Your servant Moses, saying, ‘If you are unfaithful, I will scatter you among the nations, but if you return to Me and obey My commands, then even if your exiled people are at the farthest horizon, I will gather them from there and bring them to the place I have chosen as a dwelling for My Name.’”
Nehemiah 1:8–9 (NIV)
Taking place after the Babylonian exile, the book of Nehemiah tells the story of the Jewish remnant rebuilding the temple and walls of Jerusalem. This was no ordinary building project, so this book has much to teach us about God, His people, and His ways. Tune in to this 11-part series as Dr. Chip Dickens guides us through the often-overlooked account of Nehemiah.
