Ezra 7-8

After 6 chapters Ezra comes on the scene. The year is 458 B.C. Its at least 60 years after the Jews first returned to Jerusalem. Zerubbabel lead the first group back to Jerusalem. Ezra leads a second expedition from Babylon to Jerusalem to help strengthen the struggling settlers. His purpose is different as the temple is built. He is teaching God’s Word so the people know how to worship the Lord and also how to live lives that are pleasing to God. God prompted Ezra to go and to teach the people. God’s leading is exciting in that He works in us before He works through us.
