We will spend the 10 weeks looking at God's reformation, revival, and restoration of His people in the book of Ezra. We will see God's sovereignty in bringing His plan of redemption to fruition.

The overall purpose of Ezra is to affirm that God works sovereignly through responsible human agents to accomplish His redemptive objective. Cyrus issued his decree because the Lord had moved his spirit (Ezra 1:1). Those who returned came back because the Lord had moved their spirits (Ezra 1:5). Ezra succeeded because the good hand of God was upon him (Ezra 7:9). Artaxerxes supported the work of rebuilding because the Lord had put it in his spirit (Ezra 7:27). Human beings acted freely and responsibly under the providence of God to bring His plans to fruition.
