My daily exploration of the Bible, taking it one chapter at a time. If I do it everyday, it'll take 1189 days.

Nehemiah 8

Ezra teaches the law

When they had come, Ezra taught them from the law. He read it to them as they stood up to hear, and they praised God. Then Nehemiah, Ezra, and the Levites told the people to celebrate the day. They all lived in booths for the feast, as was prescribed in the law. The festival lasted seven days.

Key verse:
10. This day is sacred to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.

My thoughts:
So obviously Nehemiah and Ezra coexisted and knew each other. Though it may not have been completely clear before, it is not very clear that Israel has a book which they follow.
