Skilled Scribe

He was a scribe skilled in the law of Moses, which Yahweh, the God of Israel, had given. The king had granted him everything he requested because the hand of Yahweh his God was on him. Ezra 7:6 HCSB

I was fortunate to attend The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, where I received the Master of Religious Education degree which helped prepare me for a lifetime of ministry, teaching, and educating others in Biblical truths. Even though I took classes in Old Testament, New Testament, history, and theology, I wish I was more skilled and knew my Bible better than I do.

Ezra was a scribe, which meant he spent much of his time recording events and transcribing copies of the ancient laws of the Hebrews attributed to Moses, usually the first five books of the Old Testament. As a scribe, Ezra would have been a student of the law and would have had a good understanding of all that God wanted from His people.

Challenge: Be a student of God’s Word. No matter how much you have read and studied your Bible, there are always new insights and principles you can learn. Ask God to reveal His purpose and direction for your life through His Word as you read and study it.
