The books of Ezra and Nehemiah (and Esther) cover about 100 years, closing the Old Testament historical books. The books of Samuel, Kings, and Chronicles closed with the Southern Kingdom (Judah)'s going into captivity. The two post-exile books of Ezra and Nehemiah record the return from Babylon after its fall to the Persians under Cyrus, the rebuilding of the temple and Jerusalem, and the reestablishment of the national life of Israel. This study contains eight hours of verse-by-verse teachings. Ezra 1-3 - Decree of Cyrus permits Jews to return to Jerusalem to rebuild the temple; the altar is set up and sacrifice restored; the foundations of the temple are laid. Ezra 4-7 - Nehemiahs unselfish example; the rebuilding is opposed; the temple is completed; Ezra is introduced.

Nehemiah 1-2 - Nehemiah prays for Israel and makes his request of King Artaxerxes. Nehemiah 3-5 - The rebuilding begins. A defense against a conspiracy: poverty and famine. Nehemiah 6-8 - False rumors about Nehemiah; walls finished; a list of those who returned; the law is read. Nehemiah 9-11 - Ezra's prayer; the covenant signed; the repopulation of Jerusalem.
