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

God]] had promised captivity judgment to the sinning nation of Israel, and He fulfilled His promise. He also promised that a remnant would return to Jerusalem (see Jeremiah 25:12-14 and 29:10- 14). Ezra and Nehemiah tell the story of the return to the land and the city, the rebuilding of the Temple, and the rebuilding of the walls. The Book of Esther also fits into this period, as do the Books of the prophets Haggai and Zechariah.

Ezra is presented as a Godly and patriotic Jew, who was a priest and scribe ( Ezra 7:1-6). He was a great student of the Scriptures, and helped to restore the Jew of the land. We will find in chapter 8 that he was a man of prayer and, in chapter 9, that he was a man who was greatly burdened for the spiritual welfare of his people. His name means "help" and throughout the Book of Ezra we will see that his faith in the Lord is seen by his willingness to undertake the dangerous journey from Babylonia to Jerusalem without the aid of military escorts.

Chapters 1--3 record key events in the history of the remnant of Israel (the returning to their land, recorded in chapters 1 and 2, and the rebuilding of the Temple, recorded in chapter 3).

The Book of Ezra records chronologically the return of the remnant to Jerusalem and the events which took place after their return. The book records the rebuilding of the Temple and its dedication. There were 42,360 Jews who returned and participated in the rebuilding. They were permitted to do so by a proclamation issued by Cyrus, king of Persia. It is possible that King Cyrus was influenced by the prophet Daniel, and may have heard from his lips the history of Nebuchadnezzar , as well as the great prophecies.
