Bible Study on Ezra and Nehemiah

Redemption, Restoration, and Renewal: Trusting in the Promises of God

Contemporary Lessons from the Books of Ezra and Nehemiah

Rev. Regina Davis-Sowers, PhD

This is a study of the post-exilic period in Israel’s history, seeking to fully discover and appreciate the contemporary lessons found in the two books.  Old and New Testament Scriptures will be examined, including some of the Major and Minor prophets, such as Daniel, Jeremiah, and Haggai, to enhance our knowledge and abilities to study the Word of God fully. We will apply the lessons to our everyday lives, looking for ways to teach ourselves and others to trust in the Lord and not lean to their own understanding (Proverbs 3:5). This is not a theological study, although I will add theological insights where appropriate.
