The old testament book of Nehemiah (pronounced Neh-'hehm-yah or Neh-'hehm-yah ) tells the story of the rebuilding of the walls of Jerusalem after the Jews returned from Babylonian exile. It is a continuation of the Book of Ezra. Like the rebuilding of the temple in the book of Ezra, the rebuilding of the walls excites the opposition of various non-Jewish inhabitants of Jerusalem and the land.

History of the King James Bible

Meaning and pronunciation of Hebrew names in the Old Testament

Preface to the First Edition of the King James Bible

The bible and Zionism

The Bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, is accepted by the three major Western faiths. It is a major work of Western civilization. The Bible documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
