Nehemiah - Introduction

The book of Nehemiah was originally the second part of a single book, of which the book of Ezra was the first part; see the Introduction to Ezra (pp 671–72 HB). The section known as Nehemiah depicts the third stage of reconstruction under Nehemiah, focusing on building Jerusalem's walls ( 1.1–7.5 ), followed by the repetition of the list of returnees ( 7.6–73 ) that frames the three stages, and concluding with the celebration of the achievements of the return and reconstruction by the rededicated Jewish community (chs 8–13 ).
