Text: Nehemiah 7 & 8
The wall of Jerusalem was rebuilt in 52 days. Now the hard task of rebuilding the people’s knowledge of God begins in Chapter 8. When Ezra began reading the Word of God several truths emerge which have great application to our own lives. We explore what happens in a healthy scripture centered, gospel focused community of believers. The basis for this kind of community is gathering people who trust and submit to scripture. This was the motivation behind Nehemiah’s selection process in Chapter 7 when he examined the genealogical records carefully.
