Our Story With God, Episode 16: Return, Rebuild, Renew

Once the devastation of Jerusalem was over and the pain of exile had run its course, the remaining sons and daughters of Israel had to learn something new about their God.  He'd proven that He could conquer kingdoms and protect His people, but what about when everything has been destroyed?  He had promised "hope and a future" - could He provide?  And once they were able to return to Jerusalem, how would they live?  Daniel showed the way through prayer and repentance.  The returning exiles committed to proper worship by building a new altar.  Men like Ezra and Nehemiah led the people, while prophets like Haggai and Zechariah continued speaking God's Word.  The people began to find a new normal with the Lord that never changed.
