Today in Nehemiah, the author lists the principle ministers, priests and Levites, who served in the days of Ezra and Nehemiah. We are going to use this list as an opportunity to learn about the ministers of the Old Covenant. Where did the ministry originate, what were the basic responsibilities of the priests and Levites, and why is it that we no longer have priests and Levites in the Church? These are the questions we’ll answer this week, paving the way for next week examining the work of the ministry in the New Covenant.
