400 years of history is a long time! From the time when the exiles return to Jerusalem and rebuild the walls of the city to the advent of Christ in the New Testament we have 400 years of Biblical silence. This series looks at what happened in those years and how they shape the time into which Jesus comes and how that impacts our faith today. Below you will find all the resources to take you through the Blank Page In Your Bible.
