II. Ezra's Mission To Jerusalem (Ezr 7–10)

In the final four chapters we finally meet the man whose name the work bears. Ezra's journey to Jerusalem is recorded in chs. 7 and 8; in 9 and 10 he deals with the problem of mixed marriages. He reappears in Ne 8-10 to play a significant role in the reorganization of the covenantal community.
