Pastor Dan Nichols
Sermon Text: Ezra 4:1-6:12
These three chapters cover 90 years of history in which the nation of Israel experiences persecution and opposition as they obey Yahweh and work to rebuild the Temple. And while there are some starts and stops to the work, ultimately the people are carried along in their efforts by trusting in the providence of God as revealed to them through the prophetic words of Haggai and Zechariah. All of which serves as a reminder that through the work of his son Jesus, God will indeed keep and protect his people, even through death.
