Strange wives! That’s how the KJV describes the pagan women that Israelite men married. Well, I’m sure glad God doesn’t have a problem with wives who are simply strange!
What was the deal then? How is Ezra going to deal with the problem of Jewish men marrying pagan-worshipping women? And were they really married?
Join us as we finish the Book of Ezra. Cast your vote: Was Ezra a legalistic jerk? Was he a hero of the faith? A mix of the two? And what does all this have to do with wearing shoes in your house?
It’s gonna be interesting! Because History is complicated.
