Nehemiah 1:3-4 (NIV)
They said to me, “Those who survived the exile and are back in the province are in great trouble and disgrace. The wall of Jerusalem is broken down, and its gates have been burned with fire.” When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven.
586 BC: Jerusalem destroyed, Jews deported to Babylon
537 BC: First group of Jews allowed to return
516 BC: The Temple was rebuilt
458 BC: Ezra led a second group back to Jerusalem
445 BC: Nehemiah asks permission to return to Jerusalem with a third group to rebuild the city walls.
The Problem: CITY WALLS NEEDED REBUILDING
Nehemiah’s Occupation: CUPBEARER TO KING OF PERSIA
