Nehemiah for Skeptics

Nehemiah might be even more boring than Ezra. Still, there are a couple things worth noting.

  • Check out the contradictions between the boring lists given in Ezra 2 and Neh.7.
  • Nehemiah rebukes the men for marrying "strange wives." To punish them he "contended with them, and cursed them, and smote certain of them, and plucked off their hair." 13:25-27
