This Evening, Colin Adams Continues the Rebuild series in Ezra. In this chapter, the Lord sends two prophets to stir up the Jews to resume the building of the temple. The Persian governor of the area investigates their authorisation for this building. Like those who stopped it the first time, he writes to the king about it. Unlike them, he is impressed by what he is told and reports their account truthfully and favourably. He only requests confirmation that Cyrus did indeed issue the decree. Meantime he allows the work to go on.
