The twin Hebrew canonical works of Ezra and Nehemiah are critical as both historical sources and insight into Jewish thought and practice in the several centuries after return from the Babylonian Captivity, initiated by the sympathetic King Cyrus in 538 . Together Ezra and Nehemiah describe the complexity of the homecoming and the struggle. to reestablish cultic and political identity.

Nehemiah - The Jews build Jerusalem's city wall again. We can read about these events in Nehemiah 9:5-37. The people in Israel do not obey God.

When the Jews returned to Israel from captivity in Babylon in the 6th and 5th centuries B.C. they face many hardships. Despite these struggles, their leaders Ezra and Nehemiah believed that God was working with them to accomplish his purpose, which was to restore a faithful community. / Israel Alive Again interprets the books of Ezra and Nehemiah in the context of the Hebrew Bible, exploring the theological meanings of these often slighted books, and emphasizing their relevance for the church today. / Like the other commentaries in the series, Israel Alive Again is intended for the layperson, student, and pastor. Its theological exposition makes it valuable to scholars as well.
