Nehemiah 12:1-26

Date: 28 May 2012

Passage: Nehemiah 12:1-26

What did the two separate lists of priests and Levites (vv1-7− returning earlier with Zerubbabel in 538 BC and vv8-21− returning during Nehemiah’s governorship) have in common? What does that say about God’s faithfulness and human loyalty across two generations?

Ask God to help us respond to Him not only with words but also with deeds. Pray that Christian people may show genuine love and care to those around them so that Christ’s gospel will continue to transform societies.
