CLASS 5 NOTES 9/2/08 1. Who worships god of Israel vs. who follows the laws is the big concern with the restoration 2. Genealogical descent = who is a Jew o Comes from Babylonian Exile o No intermarriage o Account in Ezra 8:1 o List of families from exile o No tribal affiliation, no genealogy determines whether or not you're a Jew o Represents viewpoint of elite o Assyrians and Babylonians only sent elite into exile because they held the power and could have organized an uprising o Peasants remained behind and the descendents of these peasants were the ones still in Judah when the restoration happened NOTE: AFTER 586 B.C. THE REGION IS REFFERED TO AS JUDEA NOT JUDAH ANYMORE o Conflict arose when elite was restored to Judah because the peasants had intermarried and now the lines of who was a Jew and who was not were blurred o Ezra 9:9-11 explains the decision - peasants must get rid of their foreign wives if they wished to continue to worship god of Israel The Samaritans 1.
