The command to restore and build Jerusalem was given to Nehemiah by King Artaxerxes in the year 445 BC (BCE). It is not a coincidence that the command to restore and rebuild Jerusalem was given in the month of Nissan, the same month that the Jews were set free from Egypt – the month of Passover.

ome people believe that when God issued Israel divorce papers, that it would be forever (Isaiah 50:1). But God never breaks His covenant relationship with Israel.
