Ezra Studies (Classic Reprint) free pdf Excerpt from Ezra Studies Thirteen years ago, in 1896, I published a pamphlet entitled The Composition and Historical Value of Ezra-Nehcmiah, which appeared in Giessen as one of the Beihefte of the Zeitschrift fur die alttestamcntliche Wissenschaft. It presented in concise form certain conclusions which I had reached a year or two previously, in studying the so-called "Apocryphal Ezra," or First Esdras. At alDout the same time when I was carrying on my investigations appeared the articles of Sir Henry Howorth, in the Academy (see the references given on p. 16), the pamphlets of Hoonacker and Kosters, and the more elaborate treatise of Eduard Meyer (see below). My own conclusions were formulated before I had seen any of these publications, and differed widely from each and all of them at almost every point. I found myself in agreement with Howorth, however, in his important contention that "I Esdras" represents the old Greek translation of Chron.-Ezr.-Neh.- and with Kosters in his argument (previously set forth, less completely, by Schrader and others) that the Biblical account of the return of exiles from Babylonia to Jerusalem in the time of Cyrus is untrustworthy. The conclusions reached and stated in my pamphlet have been adopted, in general, by H. P. Smith in his Old Testament History, and by Kent in his Student's Old Testament, but in each case with little or no discussion of the questions involved. So far as I know, the booklet has never been reviewed or estimated in print, except in four brief German notices, to three of which I have occasion to refer in the present volume. It has been mentioned or quoted in a few places, generally in such a way as to show that it had not been read, but only looked at here and there. Siegfried, in the tolerably long list of monographs given in the preface to his Commentary on Ezra-Nehemiah (1901), does not include it. Driver, Introduction to the Old Testament, names it in his list of monographs, but otherwise takes no notice of it, even when discussing the questions with which it is chiefly concerned.
