As part of our series of looking at how each Bible book prepares us for Jesus, we look at the books of Ezra and Nehemiah. A return story of reconstruction which begins in hope does not give us full resolution in the end. So how is it pointing us to Jesus?

A Reflection on Time (Psalm 90:1-17)

Psalm 90 forces us to reflect on Time, including our frustrations with its speed and uncertainties. As we join Moses the author to reflect on time, we see a contrast between the divine perspective and the human one...and are led with wisdom to contemplate as we "number our days."
