God, the Returnees, and the relationship between them. The primary themes Ezra develops relating to the Returnees are continuity with pre-exilic Israel, the importance of holiness, and hope for the future. The first four are in satellite events 2: The fifth is the kernel event of the mixed marriage episode in chapters Priests Profaned from the Priesthood The theme of holiness emerges first in Ezra 2: Although the text gives no indication of what action was taken with regard to the lay group, the fact that they are included in the list implies that they were among the returning exiles.
They buttress their request with the assertion that they both share the same orthodox heritage: The Returnees, however, were aware of the syncretistic nature of the Yahweh-worship practiced by these people.
Because they failed to worship Yahweh when they first entered the land, He sent ravaging lions among them 2 Kings The author of Kings makes it unmistakably clear that there was no conversion, only assimilation.
In so doing, they demonstrated that they had learned the lesson that 2 Kings sought to teach: Besides providing the background to the long opposition faced by the Returnees, Ezra 4: To compromise the pure monotheistic worship of Yahweh would constitute an implicit denial of His uniqueness.
Not only must priests be holy, but the temple and its worship must be kept holy.
Therefore, only those whose allegiance to Yahweh was pure and without syncretistic alloy would be permitted to rebuild the temple. The evidence accumulated against the people of the land in the verses that follow 4: This scene implies that holiness must not be compromised to retain the good will of syncretistic neighbors regardless of the political consequences.
Separatists Welcomed in Worship Ezra 6: A month after finishing the temple, the Returnees celebrate the Passover. Holiness is separation from all that defiles unto Yahweh. Holiness, therefore, involves both negative and positive separation. To these legal and religious applications of holiness, Ezra 6: Holiness is not only separation from uncleanness, but it is also separation unto Yahweh.
Those who would worship Yahweh acceptably must have set their hearts to separate themselves from all uncleanness and to worship and serve Yahweh alone. Those whose hearts are set to seek Yahweh are the ones whom He blesses.
A third dimension that Ezra 6: Holiness knows no racial or ethnic boundaries. This scene suggests just the opposite. Here all who were willing to abandon their idolatrous ways and seek Yahweh were welcome to celebrate the Passover.
Holy Guards Required for Holy Vessels The fourth and final satellite event that develops the holiness theme is in Ezra 8: In preparation for the return to Judah, Ezra chooses 12 princes of the priests to guard the gold and silver items dedicated to the temple.
Thematically, this scene provides a positive example of ceremonial holiness. Even in ceremonial matters, the positive orientation of holiness is always unto Yahweh.
Although the narrative never explicitly states that Yahweh is holy, with this scene the conclusion becomes unavoidable. Everything that is associated with Yahweh is holy. Vessels dedicated to His service are holy, and those who guard them must be holy.
Yahweh must, therefore, be holy. In this way, the narrative implicitly reflects what the Law identifies as the rationale for both ceremonial and ethical holiness:PERCEPTIONS OF CHILDHOOD RELATIONSHIPS WITH MOTHER AND FATHER: DAILY EMOTIONAL AND STRESSOR EXPERIENCES IN ADULTHOOD Fathers, in contrast, When fathers play an active role in the lives of their children, they generally behave differently with their sons, and they tend to spend more time with sons than daughters.
