Jerusalem’s Gates: Illustrating the Christian Life
In Biblical times, it was the gates as well as the walls of a city that served to protect it from its enemies. The third chapter of Nehemiah is a record of the progressive structural rebuilding of Jerusalem’s gates and walls. The names by which these gates were known—as well as the order in which they are recorded—reveal for us today another kind of structure: the progressive development and growth of a believer in Christ. Join Ian Taylor on a spiritual tour of Jerusalem’s Gates for insights into how the characteristics of each gate correspond to some of the blessings and responsibilities of both the individual Christian and the local church.
