In our "One Book" series Nehemiah tells the story about rebuilding the walls around the city of Jerusalem. In just 52 days this great work is accomplished. But what is significant to consider is how Nehemiah serves as a great example of leadership. In this lesson, which surveys the book named after him, we'll highlight some of those great leadership characteristics. (passages of importance: Neh. 1, 3, 4 and 13).
The Old Testament is filled with stories we need to know. Nehemiah was one of God's great leaders who inspired others to join in the rebuilding of the walls and gates of Jerusalem around the year 444 B.C. This lesson considers how Nehemiah demonstrates what it took to mentor and mobilize this amazing effort.
