Daily Study Bible - Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther

  • By J.G. Mcconville
Product Description

A meaningful commentary of the Old Testament history books of Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther provide crucial insights into the restored Judean community after exile and the diaspora's significance.

Set in the Persian Empire, one of the greatest kingdoms the world has ever known, the stories contained in the books of Ezra and Nehemiah provide the most comprehensive scriptural account of the restored Judean community after the Babylonian exile. According to J. G. McConville, "If Chronicles [the preceding book] tells us that God acted in mercy by restoring his people, Judah, Ezra-Nehemiah will reveal to us how they fared upon their return." The book of Esther is also set in the Persian period of Israel's history, although the concern is for a different community. This book shows, says McConville, "that the Jews of the diaspora-- i. e. those Jews who did not return to Jerusalem following Cypress's decree -- were still counted as God's people and had a role to play in the future of the whole."

The Daily Study Bible series seamlessly continues the legacy of William Barclay's renowned New Testament series by delving into the texts of the Old Testament, weaving together ancient wisdom and modern insights for a transformative reading experience. Perfectly tailored for individual study, spirited group discussions, or classroom exploration, the Daily Study Bible series offers an indispensable resource for spiritual seekers and scholars alike. Within these volumes, readers will encounter a profound exploration of the Scriptures, uncovering the profound messages they held in the past and discerning their relevance in the present.
