Ezra 5 And 6

  1. When the work of rebuilding the Temple had ceased for many years (4:24), by what various means did God cause it to begin again and bring about the fulfillment of his purpose?
    How does dedication strengthen faith and give guidance for prayer?
    Cf. Gen. 50:20; prov. 21:1; Hag. 1:14; 1 Tim. 2:2.
  2. Note the joy, dedication and worship when the task was completed (6:16-22). Cf. John 17:4; Acts 14:26; 20:24; Col. 4:17; 2Tim. 4:7; Rev.3:2.
