The Joy of the Lord is Your Strength

Third Sunday after the Epiphany
Scripture: Nehemiah 8:1-10

Ezra and Nehemiah are really one story told in many forms. We hear history, biography, lament, praise, instruction, poetry and celebration. In today’s passage, the people are back in Jerusalem and trying to figure out how to live faithfully as God’s people again. Ezra proclaims and interprets the Law for the people. It takes many hours but they stay and listen. Nehemiah encourages them to feast and give thanks.
