Day 269


We’re winding down our reading in the Old testament.  We have only Nehemiah (which we begin today) and Malachi before we enter the New Testament. Are you excited that you’ve stuck with us? I’m proud of everyone. I know there are times you may have struggled over passages because I sure did. And there were days I didn’t have any desire to find another image. But I also know this: the enemy didn’t want us to continue. We’re all persevering and God is so pleased.

Bible Hub shares this about Nehemiah:

“The book of Nehemiah is Narrative History. Nehemiah authored it at about 430 B.C.

Key personalities include Nehemiah, Ezra, Sanballat, and Tobiah. Nehemiah wrote it to records the events of returning to Jerusalem and rebuilding the walls in 445 B.C.

Jerusalem had a temple but there was no protection for the city from further attack. Nehemiah travels to Jerusalem and uses his leadership skill to rally a citywide construction crew. Within a few weeks, the walls around Jerusalem were built and standing tall and their enemies lost their confidence.”
