Like Ezra, Nehemiah rebuilds a portion of Israel to complete God's work. A passionate storyteller, Dr. Bill Creasy brings life to this story, with personal anecdotes, quotations, and great historical information. His performance makes audiences laugh while learning. Clearly, Dr. Creasy cares deeply about the Bible; he infuses his love for its words in this sermon. His takes a casual and fun tone, even when investigating life's deepest questions. Even those hesitant to read the Bible will enjoy this engaging live talk.
As we rebuild the temple in Ezra, so we rebuild Jerusalem in Nehemiah. Ezra and Nehemiah work together, priest and layman, to complete God’s work—and you will not find two more different characters in all of Scripture. When Ezra learns that the Israelite leaders have been unfaithful to God, he sits on the ground appalled and pulls out the hairs of his beard; when Nehemiah hears the same message, he gathers the leaders together, sits them on the ground, and he pulls out the hairs of their beards! Both Ezra and Nehemiah are great stories, and no one tells them like Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy.
