One of my favorite Old Testament books is about Nehemiah. He lived 2,500 years ago. He wasn’t a prophet or a preacher. Actually, he was like many of you reading this meditation. He was a civil servant. He was an ordinary guy, living in a foreign country, taken there as a captive, and serving as a cup-bearer to the king.
The Northern Kingdom of Israel had been ruled by a series of wicked kings and in 722 BC the Assyrian army conquered them and carried them away into captivity. They never recovered from this defeat.
