Book of Ezra (English)
By the miraculous guidance of God and with Cyrus’ decree, the Book of Ezra describes the return of Israelites to Jerusalem in 537 and 458 B.C. Not only did the Israelites rebuild the temple; more importantly, they repented and renewed their relationship with God. This was a major spiritual revival event for the Israelites!
The Book of Ezra Bible Study Set (Study Guide with Bible Study DVD) combines professional film, audiovisual effects, rigorous expository chapters, and small group interaction guides to enhance each learner’s experience of God’s words. It is an ideal tool for Sunday school and Bible study groups.
The Book of Ezra: A Synopsis
As one single account in the Jewish Bible, the books of Ezra and Nehemiah overlap in their historical focus, centering on the three returns of the Jews from exile to Jerusalem. Following in this tradition, SOWIM presents Ezra and Nehemiah Bible Study Sets as a continuous and comprehensive experience. In Part One, Ezra documents the events surrounding the first and second return of the Israelites. In this book, we see how God moved the hearts of pagan kings and raised up His faithful children to co-labor in rebuilding God’s temple out of ashes. Another emphasis in Ezra is that mere appearances of worship do not satisfy God. More crucially, God seeks to restore our intimate relationship with Him. May God help us to surrender and shatter all the idols in our lives and worship our Lord with a single heart.

Our fellowship liked the Ezra DVD very much. It gave us a historical perspective on how God led Israelites to fulfill his will. The landscape and historical relics, animations, maps, antiques, narratives, interviews … All these elements gave the audience a vivid image of the events described in Bible, brought us back to 2600 years ago, and re-enforced our understanding on God’s plan on Israelites.
