A thorough case for a later date for of Ezra, Nehemiah, and Chronicles In this collection of essays, Israel Finkelstein deals with key topics in Ezra, Nehemiah, and 1 and 2 Chronicles, such as the list of returnees, the construction of the city wall of Jerusalem, the adversaries of Nehemiah, the tribal genealogies, and the territorial expansion of Judah in 2 Chronicles. Finkelstein argues that the geographical and historical realities cached behind at least parts of these books fit the Hasmonean period in the late second century BCE. Seven previously published essays are supplemented by maps, updates to the archaeological material, and references to recent publications on the topics. Features: Analysis of geographical chapters of Ezra, Nehemiah, and Chronicles Study of the Hasmonean period in the late second century BCE Unique arguments regarding chronology and historical background

Jubal and the Prophet

Jubal and the Prophet

Jubal is the son of an important priest in the First Temple; the prophet is Jeremiah; and the time is Jerusalem under siege by the Babylonian Army. Jubal’s father leads the struggle against Babylon. Jeremiah pleads for submission to Babylon. Jubal, of course, would rather follow his father, but in spite of this natural desire, he is convinced by the message and personality of Jeremiah. His struggles lead him directly into adventure. With his friend Ezra he outwits the commander of the gates of Jerusalem, the jailer who would torture the prophet, and then this boy of courage and wisdom fights heroically in the final battle. All this, and more is the theme of the book, a story that is filled with constant action, colorful background and human as well as spiritual emotion. “Jeremiah was the most disquieting of all the prophets. To this day there are some who call him traitor. If, however, a prophet is—as I believe he is—God’s instrument, a man who speaks because a Power greater than he compels him to speak, there can be no question about Jeremiah’s integrity. Nevertheless, the human being is also present; and it is the tension between the prophet’s function as God’s mouthpiece, and his humanity as a patriot, that constitutes the theme of this book: he must condemn his people and his country even while he loves them.”—Frieda Clark Hyman

We can find excellent leadership lessons in a lot of places. One of the most interesting and instructive would be the study of Nehemiah. He is one of the great leaders in the Bible and is one of the great leaders in all of history. In this project, we will explore leadership lessons gleaned from his own personal journal and focus on the first seven chapters of the book that bears his name. Additionally, I will reference quotes and other scripture to reinforce the lesson. I summarize each chapter with Nehemiah’s “Master Builder Principles.” Nehemiah was a master builder. He built a wall around Jerusalem in just fifty-two days, when others apparently could not. He built the Jews’ confidence. He built progress. He built a strong and positive culture. He built relationships. He built his positive reputation. He built a phenomenal legacy. He built an example for all to emulate. I love the study of leadership, have been doing it for 33+ years, and expect to do it my whole life. Leadership fascinates me and the more I study it the more I validate how critical it is to teams, organizations, our nation, and our church. My life’s purpose is to Positively Influence Lives. This is done primarily through leadership. My measure of success with this project is expose readers to God’s Word, expose readers to some leadership lessons, and enable readers to build upon their leadership knowledge.

What is Kingdom building? What does it take to be a Kingdom builder, someone who co-labors with God to build His Kingdom? Since all of us are co-laboring with God, this also means, that we co-labor with each other to build His Kingdom. How do we do this given our differences, our personal insecurities, flaws and weaknesses?

In this book, Kenneth Hirth provides a comparative view of the organization of ancient and premodern society and economy. Hirth establishes that humans adapted to their environments, not as individuals but in the social groups where they lived and worked out the details of their livelihoods. He explores the variation in economic organization used by simple and complex societies to procure, produce, and distribute resources required by both individual households and the social and political institutions that they supported. Drawing on a wealth of archaeological, historic, and ethnographic information, he develops and applies an analytical framework for studying ancient societies that range from the hunting and gathering groups of native North America, to the large state societies of both the New and Old Worlds. Hirth demonstrates that despite differences in transportation and communication technologies, the economic organization of ancient and modern societies are not as different as we sometimes think.

General editor Lloyd J. Ogilvie brings together a team of skilled and exceptional communicators to blend sound scholarship with life-related illustrations. The design for the Preacher's Commentary gives the reader an overall outline of each book of the Bible. Following the introduction, which reveals the author's approach and salient background on the book, each chapter of the commentary provides the Scripture to be exposited. The New King James Bible has been chosen for the Preacher's Commentary because it combines with integrity the beauty of language, underlying Hebrew and Greek textual basis, and thought-flow of the 1611 King James Version, while replacing obsolete verb forms and other archaisms with their everyday contemporary counterparts for greater readability. Reverence for God is preserved in the capitalization of all pronouns referring to the Father, Son, or Holy Spirit. Readers who are more comfortable with another translation can readily find the parallel passage by means of the chapter and verse reference at the end of each passage being exposited. The paragraphs of exposition combine fresh insights to the Scripture, application, rich illustrative material, and innovative ways of utilizing the vibrant truth for his or her own life and for the challenge of communicating it with vigor and vitality.
