Nehemiah was a minor prophet, writer of one of the books of the Old Testament. He was governor to Jadah, where he restored the walls of Jerusalem, protecting his Jewish Flock by arms. This composition is a design for a stained glass panel in the east Chancel window of the Church of St John the Baptist, Trubrook, Liverpool, executed by Morris, Marshall, Faulkner and Company. The window is made up of two tiers each with five single features, designed by various members of the firm including two from by Madox Brown. Both of these appear in the top row, Noah at top left and Nehemiah in the forth panel. Ref, Mary Bennett (1988).
