Jerusalem, City Wall Completed

Nehemiah stayed as the governor of Judah for twelve years which started from the 20th year of King Artaxerxes I’s reign to his 32nd year. He led the people of Jerusalem in the reconstruction of the city wall, but they were strongly opposed by the foreigners who lived near them. Despite severe opposition, the wall was finally completed around 400 BC where it is recorded on the Bible Timeline Chart. Over the years, the men who opposed Nehemiah continued to accuse him of rebellion against the Persian ruler. The most dangerous scenario was when Sanballat and Geshem plotted to harm Nehemiah. They sent him a message to meet them at one of the villages in the plain of Ono.

Jerusalem
“Modern depiction of Nehemiah rebuilding Jerusalem”

After he had realized that this was a trap, Nehemiah refused to meet them. But despite years of intimidation and dangerous threats, the people continued to work. The wall of Jerusalem was finished on the 25th day of Elul (Nehemiah 6:15). The Levites, singers, and all the people of the city took part in the dedication of the wall.

This wall was expanded by Herod the Great and Agrippa I, but was destroyed during the First Jewish-Roman War in 70 AD.
