The Bible History, Old Testament Book 1
I have wished to furnish what may be useful for reading in the family,—what indeed may, in some measure, serve the place of a popular exposition of the sacred history. More than this, I hope it may likewise prove a book to put in the hands of young men,—not only to show them what the Bible really teaches, but to defend them against the insidious attacks arising from misrepresentation and misunderstanding of the sacred text. With this threefold object in view, I have endeavored to write in a form so popular and easily intelligible as to be of use to the Sunday-school teacher, the advanced scholar, and the Bible-class; progressing gradually, in the course of this and the next volume, from the more simple to the more detailed.
At the same time, I have taken up the Scripture narrative successively, chapter by chapter, always marking the portions of the Bible explained, that so, in family or in private reading, the sacred text may be compared with the explanations furnished. Finally, without mentioning objections on the part of opponents, I have endeavored to meet those that have been raised, and that not by controversy, but rather by a more full and correct study of the sacred text itself in the Hebrew original. In so doing, I have freely availed myself not only of the results of the best criticism, German and English, but also of the aid of such kindred studies as those of Biblical geography and antiquities, the Egyptian and the Assyrian monuments, etc.

While Ezra was a priest and involved more with the religious restoration of returning Remnant, Nehemiah was a layman and served in a political capacity as governor in the rebuilding of the walls of Jerusalem. Nehemiah was also written to show the obvious hand of God in the establishment of His people in their homeland in the years after their exile.
Under the leadership of Nehemiah, they accomplished in fifty-two days what had not been done in the ninety-four years since the first return under Zerubbabel. By obedient faith they were able to overcome what appeared to be insurmountable opposition. Nehemiah surely portrays Christ in willingness to leave his high position in order to bring about His work of restoration. Like Ezra, Nehemiah also falls into two specific issues: The book gives no hint of who wrote it.

But whoever it was knew the Persian culture well. The account has all the marks of a person who was there for he described the events as an eyewitness. And he was probably a Jew. Some have suggested that Ezra or Nehemiah wrote the account but no specific evidence supports that view. The events of Esther occurred between the sixth and seventh chapters of Ezra, between the first return led by Zerubbabel and the second return led by Ezra.
Esther tells the story of a beautiful Jewish girl whom King Xerxes of Persia chose to be his queen. Risking her own life, she appealed to the king and rescued the Jews. And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this? And many among the peoples of the land became Jews, for the dread of the Jews had fallen on them. In addition, we also see how God continued to providentially protect the Jews through whom He would give the Messiah. Esther easily divides into two sections: Or it may be divided into three sections: The Snake that Saves Numbers Stumbling at the Finish Numbers What Hope Do I Have?
