JONKER, Louis C.. Community Leadership, Diaspora, and Ezra-Nehemiah: Continuing the Conversation with Gary Knoppers. Old testam. essays [online]. 2021, vol.34, n.3, pp.888-901. ISSN 2312-3621.

This article examines the last contributions that Gary Knoppers made to the study of Ezra-Nehemiah. In his last book, which was published posthumously, he examined the 'conspicious' disappearance of Zerubbabel from Ezra-Nehemiah (and from other prophetic literatures) as well as the surprising down-playing of the places Mizpah and Ramat Rahel that were - according to the archaeological record - important places during the post-exilic period. In his assessment, he shows a more prominent ideological-critical line of scholarship that had not been so overt in his very well-known work on Chronicles. This article engages in further debate with Knoppers regarding these contributions to the study of Ezra-Nehemiah.

Keywords : Ezra-nehemiah; Community Leadership; Diaspora; Gary Knoppers; Ideological-critical Approach.
