Chapter Summary

In the view of the simple, unspoiled by modern biblical scholarship Bible reader, there are no Aharon problem; it is a matter of course Aaron, the older brother of Moses and the first high priest, was the ancestor of all the chief priests. Aaron is neither the brother of Moses, nor the father of the chief priests and this is shown in this chapter. The first mention of Aaron happens after the appeal experience of Moses. The chapter lists the pedigree of the high priest in two versions: In 1 Chr v 29-40 and lt. vii 1-5. The pedigree in the book of Ezra rises from below (ie, by Ezra) up to Aharon; the pedigree of the Chronicle rises from the top (ie by Aharon) down to Seraiah, the last high priest before the exile, who was executed by Nebuchadnezzar. The original context of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: Aharon problem; book of Ezra; Nebuchadnezzar
