Favour & Feasts – Ezra Ch 6

Favour & Feasts – Ezra Ch 6

This Evening, Andy Hunter looks at the change that God made in the heart of the Persian King Darius and the effect it had on the building of the temple. He responded to the enquiry from his governors overseeing Judea. He ordered a search to be made for King Cyrus’s decree. Against all odds it was found, not in the library archives of Babylon, but in the citadel of Ecbatana. He read it and issued his own decree authorising the building. More than that, he ordered the payment of both the building and the running costs. So, the temple building was completed and opened with feasts and rejoicing.
