The study of Ezra-Nehemiah has been revolutionized in recent years by a growing rejection of the long-established belief that it was composed as part of the ChroniclerGCOs work. That shift in scholarly paradigms has re-opened many questions of origin and purpose, and this thesis attempts to establish an answer to the most important of these: the question of authorship. Here, Kyungjin Min argues that Ezra-Nehemiah most likely originated in a Levitical group that received Persian backing during the late-fifth century BCE and that valued the ideologies of decentralization of power, unity and cooperation among social groups, and dissatisfaction with the religious status quo.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The author construes the book of Ezra and Nehemiah as a unified work, independent from the Chronicler and written in Levitical circles around 400 B.C.E. Mainly discussing and analyzing existent views and theories on Ezra-Nehemiah develop this thesis... Kyung-jin Ming has presented an interesting thesis."- Bob Becking, "Society of Biblical Literature, "2005
