Psalm: 74


Ezra: Ezra was commissioned by King Artaxerxes (or Xerxes) to return to Jerusalem to rebuild the Temple; to make it ready for worship. This letter is Ezra’s bona fides (his credentials or authorization) and Artaxerxes’ endorsement. He is to get as much gold and silver as needed and any free-will offerings as people may make. Other incidentals were to be charged to the crown.

Gospel: Matthew 14:1-12

New Testament: Revelation 14:1-13

Old Testament: Ezra 7:11-26
