In this short module, we cover the story of Ezra-Nehemiah and Esther. We also look at a few of the prophets who spoke toward the end of exile and after it (Daniel, Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi). We’ll briefly investigate what happens between the Old and New Testaments.

Session 1: The Return from Exile Back to Judah

Read 2 Chronicles 36:17-23; Ezra ch. 1, 2:1-3, ch. 3, 7:1-8:23, chs. 9-10; Nehemiah (skim the book, read at least the subject headings for each section); Nehemiah chs. 1-2 and the notes below in preparation for this session.

Session 2: Between the Testaments

Note: in a change to our usual practice, we'll wait until the group session to watch the video. Please prepare for the session by reading Daniel 9-12 and a couple of chapters from the Apocrypha from the handout below.
