Nehemiah 13: A Wolf’s Best Friend

After a brief review of Nehemiah, we launch into Nehemiah 13, asking the question, “Are you kidding me?” At one point in this final chapter of the book, Nehemiah describes yanking on men’s beards in his frustration and jealousy for God’s established ways. In this teaching, we put forth a single word that describes what […]

Nehemiah Chs. 11-12: The Holiness of Walls

Our main focus in Nehemiah this week is chapter 6, where we witness the ending of Sanballat’s machinations against the work of God. What finally puts an end to this enemy’s scheming?

Nehemiah Chs. 4-5: Building = Battle

As we begin chapters 4 and 5 of Nehemiah, we note an important difference in enemy tactics when we are rebuilding walls vs. rebuilding the Temple (Ezra).

In this “interlude” in the study of our text, we take a moment to examine a vital contrasting picture to Solomon’s confined worldview expressed in Ecclesiastes. Using Revelation 21 as our main study passage, we lay John’s soaring vision of the future New Jerusalem next to Solomon’s earth-bound portrait of reality. The Revelation New Jerusalem […]
