Ezra 5

Israel resumes rebuilding the temple, motivated by God’s prophets. Their enemies appeal to King Darius for answers.

  • Who really was over Israel (v. 1)?
  • What does the figure of speech in verse 5 communicate?
  • Note the testimony of God’s people’s obedience in verse 8 (cf. 1 Pet 2:12, 20; 3:17)
