  The Second Coming in 2 Esdras Greek Orthodox Icon of the Second Coming The Second Book of Esdras, otherwise known as 4 Ezra, is a apocryphal (non-canonical) work, and like the vast majority of apocalyptic writings (such as the Book of Enoch or the Apocalypse of Baruch), is written under a pseudonym attributing it to a prominent figure of. The second two of the four books (sometimes known as 3 and 4 Esdras, sometimes known as 1 and 2 Esdras) do not belong in the Bible at all and are not accepted by either Catholics or Protestants. When we said that the Church councils did not accept 1 and 2 Esdras, we were using the modern system of book names and were referring to the two. 2nd Esdras is one of the 14 books of the APOCRYPHA, removed from the original KJV bible, leaving a total of 66 books in current versions of the bible predominately distributed today. The 70 missing verses are not part of the King James Version Apocrypha, but are revealed in the Cambridge Annotated Study Apocrypha – edited by: Howard Clark Kee. It is suggested that 2 Esdras is the work of multiple authors and was written perhaps as late as the second century AD. Second Esdras includes the Jewish apocalypse of Ezra as well as seven visions regarding his concerns about the Jewish people.

II Esdras is a characteristic example of the growth of apocalyptic literature: the misery of the present world leads to the seeking of compensation in the happiness of the future. But besides its historical value, this book is an unusually important monument of religious literature for all times. Latin Esdras or 2 Esdras (lines 4, 5 and 6 of the table above) is contained in some Latin bibles as 4 Esdras; and in some Slavonic manuscripts as 3 Esdras. Except for the Douay–Rheims version (which follows the Vulgate), most English versions containing this book call it 2 Esdras (again using the Greek form for the apocryphal book). 2 Esdras 1 Revised Standard Version (RSV) The Genealogy of Ezra. 1 The second book of the prophet Ezra the son of Serai′ah, son of Azari′ah, son of Hilki′ah, son of Shallum, son of Zadok, son of Ahi′tub, 2 son of Ahi′jah, son of Phin′ehas, son of Eli, son of Amari′ah, son of Azari′ah, son of Merai′oth, son of Arna, son of Uzzi, son of Borith, son of Abishu′a, son of Phin. The book today termed 2 Esdras is not in the Jewish, Protestant, Catholic, or Orthodox canon. It was written too late to be included in the Septuagint, but it was in an appendix to the Vulgate, and it is also found among the Apocrypha in the King James Version and Revised Standard Version.
