Renovation

A Study on Ezra & Nehemiah

These historical narratives recounts the return of God’s people from exile to rebuild and renew their covenant community in true worship of God. As we read, we see the challenges—internally and externally—of renovating our own walk with the Lord and his people. All the talk of temple, Torah, turf, and throne in these books point beyond themselves to Jesus as the true temple and sacrifice, the only perfect Torah-keeper, who brings heaven to this turf, and is seated on the throne after securing God’s promises—the complete return from exile—through his life, death, and resurrection, and is still at work in the church through the empowering presence of the Holy Spirit.
