The series Beihefte zur Zeitschrift für die alttestamentliche Wissenschaft (BZAW) covers all areas of research into the Old Testament, focusing on the Hebrew Bible, its early and later forms in Ancient Judaism, as well as its branching into many neighboring cultures of the Ancient Near East and the Greco-Roman world.

This monograph investigates the literary development of Ezra 7-10 and Neh 8. With a detailed literary critical analysis, the investigation shows that the text was produced in several successive editorial phases for at least two centuries. Thus the final text cannot be used for historical purposes. The oldest text emerged as a short narrative, entirely written in the third person. It describes how a Torah scribe (Schriftgelehrter) called Ezra came from Babylon to Jerusalem to reinstate the written Torah. In the later editorial phases, Ezra's role was transformed from a scribe to a priest who brought cultic vessels to the Temple. The editorial development reveals that the text was originally influenced by Deuteronomy and the (Deutero)nomistic theology. Later, it came under priestly and Levitical influence.


Habilitation. Juha Pakkala is now lecturer at the Department of Biblical Studies at the University of Helsinki, Finland.

"Die Arbeit ist als ein sehr wertvoller Beitrag [...] anzusehen."Orientalische Literaturzeitung 2/2006 "A comprehensive redaction-critical approach to reading the so-called Ezra Material . Pakkala's analysis contributes greatly toward future reevaluations of the component parts of Ezra-Nehemiah, their relationship to each other, and their functions within the final product as a whole."Steven Schweitzer in: Biblica 2/2006
