Passage: Ezra 4
Series: Ezra
Duration: 1 hr 30 mins 17 secs
Ezra and Nehemiah were one book in the Hebrew Bible but became two when translated due to their length just as were the books of Samuel and the Kings. The purpose of the book is to tell the story of the return of God’s people into the land He had promised them. Its important because it gives us the account of God’s faithfulness to His people that after they had served their 70 years in Babylon for disobeying the Sabbath regarding allowing the land to rest, they would return from exile to the land of promise.

Passage: Ezra 3-4
Series: Ezra
Duration: 55 mins 16 secs
After 70 years of captivity in Babylon just as God had prophesied, king Cyrus has allowed the children of Israel to return to Jerusalem and rebuild the temple. After reclaiming their genealogy in chapter 2, here in chapter 3, we’ll see the children of Israel reclaim their theology… The Persians under King Cyrus allowed the deportees to return to their land in hopes they would remain loyal to him as king.

Passage: Ezra 1:1-2:0
Series: Ezra
Duration: 53 mins 39 secs
Called The Second Exodus by many the book of Ezra can best be summed up in a single word, Restoration… Restoration, the wonderful work of God, a picture of His love and grace and mercy for the nation of Israel. Once again we see God as the God of the second chance. Ezra is the first of the post exile books. Written after the 70 years of captivity in Babylon.

Passage: Ezra 1:1-11
Series: Ezra
Duration: 52 mins 17 secs
The book of Ezra picks up where 2 Chronicles left off. I guess they could have titled the book 3rd Chronicles but since most likely Ezra wrote it he gets credit. Ezra is the main character of the second half of the book bearing his name and Zerubbabel is the main character of the first half of the book. If Ezra did write the book of Ezra, he probably did so not long after he arrived in Jerusalem in 458 BC. The book of Ezra is postexilic—meaning, it was written after the Jews had been exiled to Babylon. The book of Ezra is called the Second Exodus but the message of the book is best summed up in a single word, RESTORATION.
