Ezra 3 and the Trinity

Ezra 3:1–13 (ESV)

1 When the seventh month came, and the children of Israel were in the towns, the people gathered as one man to Jerusalem.

What does Ezra 3 reveal about who God the Father is?

God the Father is shown to be good. The clearest revelation of God in this passage of Scripture is that God is good. God’s goodness is seen in his devotion and love toward his people. Love for Israel despite their sins. Elsewhere in Scripture, God’s goodness is also demonstrated by the fact that he does not allow sin to go unpunished (Exodus 34:6–7).
