Ezra cover

The historical book of Ezra begins where 2 Chronicles left off. God's people, the Southern Kingdom of Judah, had been exiled in Babylon for 70 years. It was now time to return to Jerusalem and rebuild the temple!

God had sent His people into captivity in Babylon because of their sin and He was now bringing them back—but they needed to be holy to Him. Zerubbabel led the first group of exiles back from Babylon to rebuild Temple. Ezra’s work in leading the second group back to Jerusalem, however, would be to rebuild the holiness of the people! There could be no worship without the temple—and just as certainly, there could be no worship without holy worshipers!
