Nehemiah – bacground notes and Bibliography

Starting a new series on the Old Testament book of Nehemiah today.  As with any book of the Bible, there is so much more information than can be shared on Sunday.  So I wanted to prepare some notes on the book itself, its place in the overall story of Scripture, and some key themes we will glean from the book.  I also wanted to include a short bibliography of resources I will be using in my study for the series, in case some of you would like to study alongside.

Notes – Sermon 1


As always, I will use my ESV Study Bible which is a tremendous resource for any Christian.  If you currently do not have a good study Bible, I would suggest this resource for all of your Bible reading and study.
