Passage: Nehemiah 13:1-14
1. What happened soon after Nehemiah was no longer governing Jerusalem? Why do you suppose Eliashib did this “evil thing”: while the cat is away, the mice will play? What the boss doesn’t know won’t hurt him? Tobiah the Ammonite is a friend of the family? People are more valued than property?
2. From Nehemiah’s response to what Eliashib did, what does it show about Nehemiah’s attitude toward what was read from the Law?
