In this Volume

The books of Ezra and Nehemiah are commonly the least studied of the Old Testament Histories. Rev. Dr. Andrew E. Steinmann humbly seeks to remedy this, by offering a comprehensive, original translation of both books. From the rebuilding of the temple in Ezra to the creation of the wall of Jerusalem in Nehemian, this commentary highlights the watershed events in the post-exilic history of Israel presented in these books along with their implications for teaching and preaching today. Steinmann gives particular attention to the themes of ceremonial holiness and Israel’s received holiness as the nation set apart by God.


  • One Book or Two: Theories about the Unity of Ezra and Nehemiah
  • Law and Gospel in Ezra and Nehemiah
  • Luther on Ezra and Nehemiah
  • Origins of Samaritanism
  • The Wall of Jerusalem in Nehemiah’s Day

"Steinman provides a good account of the historical circumstances of the books. A special problem for commentators on Ezra and Nehemiah is getting the readers interested in the long list of names. Steinman does a good job of making clear the nature and purpose of these texts and of dealing with the many textual variants created by the copying of long lists of names. The commentary has a definite Law/Gospel Christological focus. While by no means brushing over the 6th and 5th centuries BC. The author’s and the reader’s eyes are always glancing ahead to Christ’s coming, which was the goal of this history. Like others in the series, this is the best commentary on these books for Lutheran pastor’s libraries."

John F. Brug, Professor of Old Testament, Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Wisconsin Lutheran Quarterly (Summer 2011)

About the series

The Concordia Commentary Series: A Theological Exposition of Sacred Scripture is written to enable pastors and teachers of the Word to proclaim the Gospel with greater insight, clarity, and faithfulness to the divine intent of the Biblical text.

The series will cover all the canonical books of the Old and New Testament, with an original translation and meticulous grammatical analysis of the Hebrew, Aramaic, or Greek of each text. The foremost interpretive lens centers on the unified proclamation of the person and work of Christ across every Scriptural book.

The Commentary fully affirms the divine inspiration, inerrancy, and authority of Scripture; Each passage bears witness to the confession that God has reconciled the world to Himself through the incarnation, ministry, death, resurrection, and ascension of Christ His Son.

Authors expose the rich treasury of language, imagery, and thematic content of the Scripture, while supplementing their work with additional research in archaeology, history, and extrabiblical literature. Throughout, God’s Word emanates from authors careful attention and inculcates the ongoing life of the Church in Word, Sacrament, and daily confession.
