Ezra/Nehemiah – Nehemiah Begins Rebuilding
March 10, 2012
Nehemiah comes to Jerusalem and evaluates the work to be done but does not immediately tell anyone of his plans. When confronted about the rebuilding of the temple, Nehemiah tells his critics that God will restore the Jews to Jerusalem. It is when Nehemiah begins this rebuilding that Daniel’s messianic prophecy of seventy weeks of years begins.
Nehemiah is known for his intercession, an important facet of leadership.
