This week God continues to fulfill His promise to return His people to the promised land. That plan began a few weeks ago when we read the book of Ezra chapters 1-6. Cyrus, the king of Persia, allowed God’s people to return to Jerusalem and rebuild the temple. Then the book of Esther chronicled how God kept his people safe while they lived in Persia. This week we will read about the third and finally emigration home. The story begins with the King’s cupbearer leading a group of people back to Jerusalem to rebuild the wall.
