Facts Found in the Book of Ezra

  1. The Book of Ezra reconfirms that Jesus is the Savior who heals all sin and who teaches us how to live in loving relationship with our creator, God.

    Ezra records for the Jews how God's mercy toward His people "endures forever" - Ezra 3:11. Despite disobedience on the part of the people whom He had created, cared for, and disciplined, God had plans for them. We see how God mercifully delivered His people from captivity in Babylone - Ezra 1:3, repaired their Promised Land in Jerusalem - chapters 1--6, and restored their relationship wih Him - chapter 7--10. He performed this deliverance back to Jerusalem in order to fulfill His promise to send the Savior, Jesus - Micah 5:2.

    Ezra was in the line of Israelite priests descended from Aaron and believed firmly in God and His Word. God inspired Ezra to help free His people and to record their redemption - Ezra 7:10. Ezra wrote about a second exodus and a remnant of Hebrew people who had survived war and captivity by Babylon. God had promised this punishment, and deliverance.

    Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar and his armies had defeated the southern kingdom of Judah, had destroyed the Hebrew temple, and had dragged most of the survivors to Babylon. Later, as prophesied, God used the Persians to conquer the Babylonians. He then directed several Persian rulers to free the Jews. "Who says of Cyrus, 'He is My shepherd, and he shall perform all My pleasure, saying to Jerusalem, "You shall be built," and to the temple, "Your foundation shall be laid" ' " - Isaiah 44:28.

    Ezra records how one group of Jews was led by Zerubbabel to rebuild Jerusalem's temple. Zerubbabel is part of the messianic line of rulers - 1 Chronicles 3:17-19; Matthew 1:12, 13, and one of Jesus' ancestors. A second group was led back fifty-eight years by Ezra, who helped them to reclaim their worship in the temple together with their spiritual lives.

    Ezra foreshadows Jesus. He left the comforts of Babylon and devoted his life to pray for, teach, and transform the Jews' hearts and minds in preparation for Christ's birth in Jerusalem.

    God Bless
