When the people of Israel returned to Jerusalem after the exile, the city was run down, and its wall had been destroyed. The book of Nehemiah describes its namesake’s effort to rebuild the wall and restore God’s city. It offers an example of godly leadership that believers can learn from today. Nehemiah’s prayerful dependence on God, his devotion to the Word, and his commitment to lead Israel in repentant faith are exemplary in the biblical record.

In volume two of this series, Alistair Begg examines the impact of God’s Word being proclaimed in Jerusalem. As Ezra the priest read the Law to the people, the result was confession, repentance, and praise. This account demonstrates the central place of preaching in the life of the church and the outlook that Christians should take toward it: God’s Word is good, and it is meant for our good. By God’s grace we may understand and obey it.
