1 Chronicles – Nehemiah describes the fact that while Israel and Judah flaunted their disobedience in God’s face and persecuted His prophets, He kept His commitment to His covenant promises.

This course has really helped me to see the connections during this important time in the history of God’s chosen people. Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther make more sense now that I know the order in which they were written since they are not in chronological order in the scriptures.

This course was a great history lesson for me. My knowledge of the Old Testament was enriched by this course.
I had no knowledge of what Ezra or Nehemiah was about or their part in rebuilding of the temple. It has really helped me to better understand the history of the Israelites and has made the OT come more alive. Great course. Challenging as it includes a lot of history to remember but I found it very interesting and it made the reading lesson exciting!

Very good. I enjoyed this professor. He had a way of making it interesting by paraphrasing the story in a conversational, storytelling way.
