GUEST POST: If Ezra Were Alive Today

If Ezra Were Alive Today
(a guest post by Mr. Cohen)

Ezra was one of the greatest leaders in Jewish History,
and the proof is that an entire book of the Jewish Bible
was named after him – a claim very few people can make.

The Biblical Book of Ezra reveals details about Ezra’s religious teachings:

Ezra, chapter 1, verse 3, reveals that Ezra wanted
to rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem.

Ezra, chapter 9, verse 3, reveals that Ezra was completely
opposed to intermarriage between Jews and non-Jews;
this verse states that when Ezra discovered that Jews
were intermarrying with Gentiles, he felt so aggravated
that he tore his clothes, and also tore his own hair out from
his head, and also ripped the hairs out from his own beard.

In verse 12, Ezra commanded all Jews to NOT intermarry with non-Jews.

In verse 14, Ezra mentioned that intermarriage would make GYD angry at the Jews.

In verse 15, Ezra mentioned that intermarriage is inexcusable.

Ezra, chapter 10, verse 3, reveals that under Ezra’s guidance,
ALL the non-Jewish wives of Jewish men, and the children
born to them, were permanently sent away.

Since all the children of non-Jewish women were permanently
sent away, even though they all had Jewish fathers, Ezra taught us,
through his actions, that people born to non-Jewish mothers
are NOT Jewish, even if they have Jewish fathers.

The last two words of Ezra, chapter 10, verse 3 are:
VeCaTorah Yeaseh”, which means that Ezra’s policy of
Jewishness by matrilineal descent was “according to the Torah”.

The two words which precede “VeCaTorah Yeaseh” are
BeMitzvat Elokainu”, which means that Ezra’s policy of
Jewishness by matrilineal descent was
“according to the command of our GYD”.

Ezra’s policy of Jewishness by matrilineal descent was
never contradicted by any Jewish prophet, even though
Jewish prophets were still active in Ezra’s time.
 
Ezra, chapter 7, verse 6, describes Ezra as:
an expert scholar of the Torah of Moses.
This description is never contradicted by any prophet,
nor is it ever disputed by any Rabbis of:
the Mishnah, Talmud or Midrash.


 
In our times, Orthodox Jews are the ONLY Jews who
want to rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem, like Ezra;
and completely oppose intermarriage with non-Jews,
like Ezra; and also define Jewishness exclusively by
matrilineal descent, like Ezra.

Therefore, if Ezra were alive today, he would
probably be categorized as Orthodox!
