ABSTRACT

This paper deals with a history of research on the books of Ezra and Nehemiah from the year 1990 to the present. For this, I investigated several Korean books, commentaries, monographs, and articles, and English or German books, commentaries, and monographs, which are related to the books of Ezra and Nehemiah. In Korea, the Old Testament books of Ezra and Nehemiah have been neglected, so that studies on them have not been actively promoted until the mid-1990s. However, a few scholars have begun to study the books of Ezra and Nehemiah since the mid-1990s, and since the 2000s several scholars have concentrated their studies on the books of Ezra and Nehemiah. They have published several studies on the historical background, theologies, composition, sources, and applications of methodologies in regard to the books of Ezra and Nehemiah. In foreign countries, studies on the books of Ezra and Nehemiah have been actively promoted since the 1980s, and important commentaries on them have been published by several scholars. This trend has continued after the 1990s. Many commentaries have been published on the basis of the editorial intentions of several commentary series, and several monographs have been published with several foci, such as historical background and subjects, the relationships between 1 Esdras and Ezra-Nehemiah, and Nehemiah himself. This study plays an important role in showing the trend of studies related to the books of Ezra and Nehemiah.
