The Book of Ezra (Overview)

The book of Ezra picks up where 2 Chronicles left off. I guess they could have titled the book 3rd Chronicles but since most likely Ezra wrote it he gets credit. Ezra is the main character of the second half of the book bearing his name and Zerubbabel is the main character of the first half of the book. If Ezra did write the book of Ezra, he probably did so not long after he arrived in Jerusalem in 458 BC. The book of Ezra is postexilic—meaning, it was written after the Jews had been exiled to Babylon. The book of Ezra is called the Second Exodus but the message of the book is best summed up in a single word, RESTORATION.
