As we enter 2017 we look back at the Jewish exile and the return of the people of Israel to the Promised Land. The books of Ezra, Haggai and Esther are to do with the work of God after 70 years of captivity, prophesied by Jeremiah. May God challenge our hearts as He did with His people of that day and age.
