This Sunday, September 3: Return from Exile Part 1

This summer we are taking an extended look at the journey of God’s people as recorded in some of the key books of the Old Testament. We believe that the whole story of God and his people ultimately points to and finds its fulfilment in the person of Jesus Christ. The better we know this story the better we’ll know Jesus’ story and the better we’ll understand our own story as followers of Jesus. We continue our journey this week with the books of Ezra and Nehemiah.

Ezra-Nehemiah

“Many Israelites return to Jerusalem after the exile, and face some success alongside many spiritual and moral failures.  Originally written together as a single book in the Jewish Scriptures, Ezra and Nehemiah document the fulfillment of God’s promise that Israel will return home after 70 years of exile in Babylon and restore their ruined dwellings again.”  (The Bible Project. 2017.https://thebibleproject.com/explore/ezra-nehemiah/)

Ezekiel
“Among the exiles in Babylon, Ezekiel shows Israel righteousness of God’s judgment, and that God’s justice creates hope for the future.” Towards the end of Ezekiel’s writings, the kingdom of Judah has suffered the shame of conquest. Even the Temple lays in ruins; spirits aree at an all-time low. But Ezekiel is given a vision. God will give the people his Spirit, and they will live.

Lamentations
“A collection of five funeral poems offered on behalf of Jerusalem after its destruction by Babylon. The Book of Lamentations may not be the most popular book in the Bible, but it is an essential ingredient for helping humans to understand an important aspect of their relationship with God – the expression of grief and distress. Now surrounded by war, grief and suffering, the people of Israel acknowledge their sin and cry out to God for restoration and repentance in the lament poems. (The Bible Project 2017.  https://thebibleproject.com/explore/lamentations/)

Jeremiah
“Jeremiah announces that God will judge Israel’s sins with an exile to Babylon. And then, he lives through the horror of his predictions.

After years of straying from God’s ways, King Josiah guided the people back to godliness, with Jeremiah’s help. God speaks to the prophet. Since before he was born, God has known him intimately and has dedicated him to his service. He will support him in this ministry, despite his youth, inexperience, and apparent lack of authority.” (The Bible Project 2017.  https://thebibleproject.com/explore/jeremiah/)
