When the exiles rebuilt the temple of God in Jerusalem, they started working on the Altar. Why did they rebuilt the Altar first? What is so important about the Altar? What is the purpose of the Altar? In the conclusion of our series on the book of Ezra, we see the Israelites prioritized the Altar because it is only through sacrifice & offerings that they can come into relationship with God. The Altar is where we lay our sacrifice, we give our offerings, and we celebrate in His presence. We no longer do those rituals because Jesus already did the ultimate sacrifice. Jesus is our Altar. And to rebuild the Altar. We must Bring our Sacrifice, Give our Offerings and Celebrate in His Presence.
