Ezra 1-2: A Call to Restore True Worship

What is true worship? In Christian circles, the term “worship” is used rather often, but what is it and how do we do it? The book of Ezra, written almost 2,500 years ago, gives us a pretty clear answer. The Jewish people were trying to return to Israel from their captivity in Babylon. As they did so, they sought to rebuild the altar and the temple. Both what they did and how they did it is instructive to our worship today.
