Biblical Text in Rabbinic Context (Paperback)
The Book of Chronicles in the Mishnah, Talmud and Midrash
This study investigates how the Rabbis handled the Book of Chronicles, highlighting issues including intermarriage. While genealogical lists contain intermarriage in Chronicles, Ezra-Nehemiah is generally opposed. Ezra did compose some of the lists and intermarriage was acceptable only under certain conditions.
