What is Christianity?

Christianity is about God reaching out his hand in friendship to mankind. Christians believe that the whole world and everything in it was created by God. God is a personal being, a living God who is three, yet one: Father, Son and Spirit, just as we human beings have body, mind and soul! (see the Trinity).

The Bible says God created people in his image, to love him. Yet every person has rebelled against God and sinned. Yet instead of turning his back on us, God became a man, Jesus, who most scholars believe was born about the year 4 BC and lived among us. He taught a message of love throughout Palestine but public opinion turned against him and he was executed as a young man.

He died because of us - the death that we should have died. He was crucified on a cross, but he rose from the dead, and now calls us to trust him, to love him and to repent of our rebellion. If we do this, then we our relationship with God becomes restored and we will live forever with God.

Many non-Christians may think that being a Christian is about belonging to a particular church or following a certain set of rule. Most Christians however would agree that at its root, being a Christian means to be in a living relationship with Jesus.

May Scripture Portion for Bible Commentary : 1 Chronicles 7 - Job 11 including the books of Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther

The dedication of the walls takes place in chapters 11 and 12. The actual dedication is described in chapter 12:27-47.

Ezra and Nehemiah divided the people into two great companies, with Ezra leading one and Nehemiah following the other. They probably started at the Valley Gate, with Ezra leading his company along the east side of the city, then north to the Temple area. Nehemiah and his company went straight north, and then east, meeting the other company at the Temple. It was perhaps a reminder of when Israel marched around Jericho and won a great victory. It was also an opportunity to publicly thank the Lord, as they witnessed the work accomplished. Verse 43 indicates that the joy of the city was heard miles away. What a day of dedication it must have been!

It is interesting to note that, once the walls were completed and dedicated, one-tenth of the population was brought into the city to live. It was necessary to get the Jews to live in the city, both for the glory of God and for the good of the city. This demanded faith on the part of the Jews. The leaders were already dwelling in the city, and now they cast lots and one-tenth of the citizens joined them. Chapter 11:2 indicates there were some volunteers. Those listed in verses 3-19 total 3,044. If this number represented ten per cent of the male population, we can see how small the remnant was in the land.
