Who Was Nehemiah?
Nehemiah – Putting Feet to Prayers
The Book of Nehemiah recounts how Nehemiah, the cupbearer to the Persian King, led the charge to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem to protect the Jewish people living in their homeland. He partnered with Ezra, the priest, who also has a book named after him in the Bible. Faced with incredible opposition, Nehemiah prayed fervently for the success of his endeavors, but he also did specific things to partner with God and put those prayers into action, a practice called putting feet to prayers.
We are beginning a four-week worship series on Nehemiah. Nehemiah has a book of the Bible named after him, and he played a pivotal role in the history of the Jewish people, yet not many people are aware of the amazing things he accomplished despite intense opposition. This Brief Bible Dive will give an overview of who he was and what he accomplished.
