以斯拉记2参考

尼希米、未底改,不是后来的人吗?怎么在这里出现?
2:2 这里的尼希米,与八十年后重建耶路撒冷城墙的那一位,是两个不同的人。而这里的末底改也不是以斯帖记中的那位。

这些都是举足轻重的人物……
2:2 这里所列的全是以色列人的领袖,与尼希米记7章7节所载的相同。

不知道这些人是属哪一支派的呢?
2:2-35 这里提到的都是犹大和便雅悯支派的人(参1:5)。

回归子民多如沙,你看连分组也……
2:3-35 这是回归子民中主要的一批,按家族(2:3-20)和城市(2:21-35)来分组。从36节开始,列出了祭司、利未人和圣殿其他仆役的名单。

族谱对以色列人极其重要,其中原因你知道吗?
2:59-63 族谱是希伯来人最重要的凭证,若不能证明自己是亚伯拉罕的后嗣,便不被视为真犹太人,必遭受排斥、也无法全面融入犹太人的社会生活。另外,神给某一支派的成员有特别的职分,例如,只有利未(亚伯拉罕的孙子)的后人才可在圣殿里事奉神。

“至圣之物”、“乌陵”、“土明”,这些词是有所指的──
2:63 这里的省长很可能是所罗巴伯。乌陵和土明是放在大祭司的胸牌内、形状似平滑石块的物件,大祭司藉此在重大事情上寻求神的旨意(参利8:8注释)。“至圣之物”不是人人皆可吃的,指献于祭坛上只分给祭司的那一分祭肉。

今天人们作十一奉献已很困难,如要像他们将全部甘心献上,这嘛……
2:68-69 圣殿重建时,各人随己力和心意来奉献,更有人慷慨地献出了自己丰厚的资财。这项庞大的工程,需要人人努力合作,尽自己最大的能力奉献。今天,我们很多时候只奉献收入的十分之一,但圣经告诉我们要将一切从心底全然献上(参林后8:12;9:6)。愿我们不仅献出自己有余的部分,还要按照神的呼召,甘心乐意献上所有的恩赐。

有人捐这么多钱,那么重建的圣殿会不会有所罗门时代的辉煌?
2:69 达利克和弥拿是金币和银币的单位。以色列人各尽所能,献出一切资财,筹得的金钱足够重建圣殿。他们虽然满腔热诚,但所建起的与所罗门圣殿的富丽堂皇相比,仍逊色很多。当年大卫用来兴建所罗门圣殿的费用,比此时的要多出一千倍(参代上22:14)。难怪有人追忆被毁的圣殿,想起过去的辉煌时,禁不住号啕大哭(参3:12)。
