1 STUDY GUIDE AND STUDY QUESTIONS FOR EZRA Historical Time and Background for Ezra This historical book of Ezra covers the beginning of what is called the Post-Exillic period of Israel s history. It is also linked with Nehemiah, which is considered the 2 nd book of Ezra in the Jewish Scriptures. Those who had been living in Babylon and Persia during the 70 year Captivity that began approximately 605 BC were allowed to return to their homeland. This captivity was a judgement upon Israel s Southern Kingdom (tribes of Judah and Benjamin) for not giving the land its Sabbath rest. See the following Scriptures for some basic insight into the Captivity Leviticus 25:1-7 / 2 Chronicles 36:20-23 / Jeremiah 25:11-12; 29:10-14; 30:3 / Daniel 9:1-3. It was written somewhat concurrently with the ministries of Haggai and Zechariah, and begins with the proclamation of Cyrus, king of the Persian empire, giving the Jews the provision to rebuild the Temple. Haggai and Zechariah were called by God to exhort the returned exiles to rebuild the Temple. There are many of the same problems spoken of in Nehemiah and in Malachi about a hundred years later (see Neh 13:1-28 & Malachi). Reading the last chapter of 2 Chronicles, along with Haggai and Zechariah, should help provide a better understanding of the historical context of Ezra (and Nehemiah). Familiarity with the Old Covenant Law and history of Israel is also very helpful. The book of Ezra covers the years BC and covers the longest time period of three books related to Israel s post-exillic history (overlapping with Esther). The book of Esther covers the years BC, and Nehemiah covers the years BC (all dates are approximate).these three books are the history that covers the time when Israel was able to return to its homeland after the period of Captivity in Babylon and Persia, paralleling the prophetic ministries of Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi. Important Contemporary People of Ezra The influential leaders of Israel were Zerubbabel, Ezra and Nehemiah. Zerubbabel was the leader of the first wave of exiles returning from Captivity (about 537 BC). Ezra was a scribe (and teacher) who returned with a second wave of returning exiles in 458 BC). Nehemiah came to Jerusalem as a governor in about 444 BC with another wave of returning exiles. These three waves of returning exiles roughly correspond this way the 1 st captives were exiled in 605 BC and included the prophet Daniel and his three faithful companions. These were mostly the royal and noble classes. The 1 st return of exiles (roughly 70 years later) begins in 537/536 BC. There was a 2 nd wave of captives taken in 597 BC. The 3 rd wave of captivity took place in 586 BC when both the Temple and the city of Jerusalem were destroyed. This is recorded by and during the ministry of the prophet Jeremiah. This corresponds to the completion of the temple in 516 BC, which was begun under Zerubbabel s leadership in 520 BC, and corresponds to Haggai s prophecies. The kings of Persia who ruled over the Jews (in a worldwide empire) would be Cyrus ( BC), Cambyses ( BC), Darius I ( BC), Xerxes I also called Ahasuerus ( BC), Artaxerxes I ( BC), Possibly Xerxes II (424 BC), and Darius II ( BC).
