(32 verses, 5:00 to read)

What I am about to READ

  • Nehemiah lists all the worker around the wall and gates of Jerusalem.

MARK & LEARN

  • This chapter is straight forward. Think of it like walking around the wall of Jerusalem and making note of the men and families who are working on repairing the walls and gates.

MEDITATE

  • It is always helpful to remember that before the Scriptures teach us theology they first teach us history. This history of Nehemiah’s work is important background information for the New Testament. Under Nehemiah (and Ezra) the worship of the temple is restored in Jerusalem.
