The book of Ezra reveals the providential hand of God and his great mercy and faithfulness to Israel as they returned from exile and rebuilt the Jerusalem temple. Israel was also being rebuilt spiritually, being summoned anew to covenantal loyalty in faithful worship of God and obedience to his laws. Even as Ezra also shows us that Israel’s situation still fell far short of its full deliverance, the book’s focus on God’s faithfulness and the obedience and holiness required of his people speaks to us today as urgently as it did then.
