Introduction

Ezra and the Second Wilderness

Philip Y. Yoo

Oxford Theology and Religion Monographs

  • Correlates the literary development of Ezra 7-10 and Nehemiah 8-10 with that of the Pentateuch
  • Argues that the Ezra Memoir shows an awareness of all four of the traditional Pentateuchal sources
  • Maintains that Ezra and the returnees are presented in the Ezra Memoir as superior to the community that they travelled to the Promised land under Moses
  • Sheds fresh light on this piece of post-exilic literature and presents it as an example of 'inner-biblical interpretation' which anticipates problems and solutions of later commentary on the Pentateuch
