I. The Leader-Ezra (7:1-10).
1. Who he was (vv. 1-0. (1) A
priest (vv. 1.5). The leader of the lirsi
colipaly wits Zerubbabel, a sort ol
military governor. The great need ilom
was for a religious leader, for tht

of the Lord" (v. 10). He deiiltely sel

God's Word. To be successful in any
thing one must set out with a purpose

is obedience to God's Word. (3) 1h
set his heart to teach Israel God'i
statutes an1d judgments (v. 10). He no1
only had a love for Cod's Word, but t
desire to implant it in the hearts o
others. When ono has an experientia

teach it to others.

judges (v. 25) ; (4) to execute pen
ilties (v. 20). So great was the king'
confidence in Ezra that he gave al
these powers into his hand. For thil
