"Long ago, a remnant of the children of Israel returned to Jerusalem. Through great difficulties, the temple was rebuilt. However, the complete restoration of the testimony of God also included the rebuilding of the city and its wall. From the first return of the remnant under Zerubbabel to rebuild the temple, until the time that Nehemiah rebuilt the wall and set the city in order, took about 100 years. During this period of restoring the wall, there was a great danger of all they had accomplished being destroyed. The wall and the city had to be rebuilt. Then the full restoration would be complete.
