How to Master the Bible

He came to Jerusalem in the fifth month, which was in the seventh year of the king. For on the first of the first month he began to go up from Babylon; and on the first of the fifth month he came to Jerusalem, because the good hand of his God was upon him. For Ezra had set his heart to study the law of the LORD and to practice it, and to teach His statutes and ordinances in Israel. — Ezra 7:8-10

In the whole of human history, there is no better example of a biblical scholar than Ezra. He is directly responsible for providing the combined Old Testament as we know it, for establishing the foundation of the scribal system which faithfully preserved it in its original form to this very day, and on top of that oversaw the forty-nine year project to build the temple. He actually laid the proper foundations for the literal temple as well as the spiritual temple consisting of God’s people returning to both God and the land. And he set the standard, which even to this very hour, determines who is and who is not a true scholar in God’s estimation. He did not merely “study” and “teach”, but most importantly, he “set his heart…to practice it”. The “good hand of his God was upon him” not because of what was in his brain, but that upon which “Ezra had set his heart”.
