During the time Judah was exiled in Babylon and in the years that followed, God used numerous individuals to declare His truth and to accomplish His purposes. He continued to reveal Himself and His plan to His people, disobedient though they had been. In particular, we see God using faithful servants in foreign lands and His spokesmen to reestablish the acknowledgement of His law and His presence in Jerusalem. Through the leaders God placed in strategic positions, the Lord protected and instructed His people and continued to prepare His people and the world for the arrival of His Son, the Messiah.
