Nehemiah is rebuilding life in a warzone. God had promised Abraham long before: your people will be huge, your name will be crazy famous and there will be blessings for everyone. The people respond, “we couldn’t care less--especially about you.” So God exiles his people, pulling them from the Promised Land. Several decades later they are allowed to return but things are not the same. Now Nehemiah squints to see the promises of God in the rubble of Jerusalem. It’s not just about a messed up wall, but a messed up people and how to accomplish an impossible task in the face of opposition.
