KYB for Term 3, 2020
Our upcoming study for Term 3 this year is Faith and perseverance under pressure: Nehemiah written by Sue Gleeson.
The Jews are newly returned from exile in Babylon — but they are still ruled by Persia. Jerusalem still lies in ruins from its defeat almost 150 years before. And while rebuilding had begun, political pressures had stopped the work. It was a tragic and discouraging situation.
But then God raised up Nehemiah, and sent him to rebuild Jerusalem. He would face incredible dangers and challenges on every side. How did he deal with them? What can we learn today from Nehemiah’s example of faith and perseverance under great pressure? Discover what God has to teach us through Nehemiah in your KYB groups for Term 3!
