Structure and Message of the book of Ezra

Ezra Structure

Message of Ezra

God does not discard his chosen people but uses his word, uses opposition to his plan, raises up leaders among his people and in the world around them to remake and restore them when they fail. God overrules human failure by changing people’s hearts. He is faithful to those who trust Him and faithful to accomplish his promises for them.

  1. God is faithful to restore his people according to his covenant.
  2. God can turn opposition to blessing.
  3. God fixes broken temples, broken relationships, and broken people.
  4. God uses people who are devoted to his Word and to his mission.
  5. God is always available to someone who is willing to humble themselves, confess and submit to him.
