Bible Lesson 31: Ezra Leads Worship

Memory Verse: John 4:23 But an hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and in truth. Yes, the Father wants such people to worship him.

  1. The first return from the exile in Babylon was led by Zerubbabel to rebuild the temple; the second return was led by Ezra to restore worship and the knowledge of God’s Word; the third return was of Nehemiah to rebuild Jerusalem’s wall with the help of the Jewish people already in Jerusalem.
  2. The word worship means to attribute great worth to God.
  3. The illustration of mixing colored water represents the mixing of religions or cultures. When religions or cultures are mixed, beliefs and customs are blended or compromised.
  4. The danger of a believer marrying an unbeliever is two-fold: it can dilute the believer’s faith, and it can influence children away from faith in God.
  5. Ezra was astonished that the people had so quickly begun marrying unbelieving women, even though God forbade it and history had taught them about its dangers.
  6. Ezra led his people by example. He advised the Israelite men to send their unbelieving wives and children away.
  7. When Ezra read the Word of God to the Israelites, it convicted, corrected, and instructed them. The power of God’s Word is seen when they were willing to stand for hours to listen and they were grieved over their sins and wanted to change.
  8. The Israelites showed respect by listening to God’s Word with undivided attention. They were sorry for their sins and rejoiced, worshiping God genuinely.
  9. The word fast means to go without eating for a time.

10.The word sackcloth refers to a rough and scratchy fabric often worn in Bible days to show         humility before God.

  1. A repentant and believing heart is required for salvation.
  2. Baptism and the Lord’s Supper symbolize Christ’s death, burial and resurrection.
  3. The similarities between Old Testament worship and New Testament worship are:
  • To worship God for who He is
  • To read and teach God’s Word
  • To pray and praise
  • To sing and play music to glorify Him
  • To give tithes and offerings
  • To fellowship

The differences between them are:

  • Old Testament–rituals and sacrifices with feasts
  • New Testament–witnessing about Christ, the Lord’s Supper, and baptism.
  1. People in the Old Testament came to God through faith in God and in the coming Messiah. People in the New Testament and believers today also come to God through faith, but it is faith in Christ’s completed work–His death, burial, and resurrection.
  2. A relationship with God can be improved through learning His Word, trusting Him, praying, praising Him, worshiping Him, tithing, fasting, and witnessing.
