COMFORTABLE IN EXILE

Ezra 1

 The Exile started when the Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed in 586 B.C.

 Babylon was taken over by the Persians.

 The king who ordered Judah and Benjamin to return was Cyrus.

 Out of all of the exiles, only 42,360 returned, and the remainder stayed in Exile.

 The first thing the returnees did was rebuild the altar but not the whole Temple.

The king who ordered the Temple to be finished was Darius.

 The Temple was finally finished and dedicated in 516 B.C.

 The prophet who foretold the seventy-year Exile was Jeremiah.

 There are lots of Christian exiles in Syria, Nigeria, and North Korea today.

 One way to bring children out of Exile today is through foster care and adoption.
