Nehemiah demonstrates great leadership as he brings a third group of exiles back to rebuild Jerusalem. He encounters much resistance but in the end the walls are rebuilt. Ezra leads the people in a renewal of their covenant with God and a joyous celebration of the Feast of Tabernacles. However, it is not long before the people are once again in disobedience. So, the Old Testament ends with the reality of man’s frailty but with the reminder that one day God will send a messenger before Him and bring the people into a right relationship with Him resulting in the purity of worship He has longed for.
