The Raising of the Teacher – Ezra Ch7

The Raising of the Teacher – Ezra Ch7

This evening, Rorie Watson continues the series on the book of Ezra. Up till now, the story has been telling of the rebuilding of the temple. Now, sixty years after the end of chapter six, The prophet Ezra enters the scene. His credentials as a priest are proven by his descent from Aaron, the first High Priest. More than that, God gives him favour with King Artaxerxes to grant him permission to return to Jerusalem with a large company of other priests. Indeed, the king sponsored the return and the Temple worship there. From now on, the scene shifts to the rebuilding of the nation to be a people of God.
