Ezra-Nehemiah, Part 7: A Faithless People, A Faithful God (Ezra 9:1-10:44)

  • It is extremely rare to experience lament over sin and repentance as intense as Ezra’s. Why is that? What does that say about Ezra’s view of sin compared with ours? How can we cultivate a heart like Ezra’s (answer practically/realistically)? 
  • Why is genuine repentance so difficult? How can you tell if your repentance is genuine or contrived/surface level?

1: Ezra is confronted with the problem (Ezra 9:1-2).
2: Ezra laments and leads in prayer and confession (Ezra 9:3-15).
3: The people respond and a tragic plan is set in motion (Ezra 10:1-44).
