90 Day Challenge Day 36

Read Nehemiah 1 – 13


  • Nehemiah grieves
  • Nehemiah inspects Jerusalem’s walls
  • Walls are built
  • Sanballat mocks Jews building the walls
  • “Our God will fight for us”
  • Sanballat-Tobiah-Geshem’s plot
  • The wall is finished
  • Census of returned exiles
  • Ezra reads the law
  • The People confess their sin
  • An agreement, a signed document
  • Re-occupation of the land, Jerusalem, the temple and land

Interesting Fact: The success of the Jews in this rebuilding effort was enormous, the glory of the temple was not as grand as Solomon’s Temple, and Herod takes on the task of rebuilding the Temple that Jesus walked in.

What's TheTempleBlog?

The TempleBlog started as my personal blog in October of 2006 with my first post: John Stott – it was a listing of John Stott quotes.

Now it is a different place. I mostly write about two of my convictions: Pacifism and Racism. But I also offer resources: both digital and personal. 

If you need Bible Study materials, want to take a more serious look at theology via an online course, or want to dialog with me about ministry and what I call Spiritual Construction, fill out the form here and we can connect and see where the relationship goes. 

SBK Productions is your online source for Homeschooling Resources and Art History Curriculum. She also offers several unique devotionals which incorporate Art History with the Church Calendar. Check out her upcoming Christmas Devotional series which would work for individuals, families, small groups, and churches.
