In chapter xii, 27-43, we have the account of the solemn dedication of the walls of Jerusalem; Esdras the scribe is mentioned as being at the head of a group of singers (verse 35).
It is true that in the Third Book of Esdras (the Greek I Esdras) the narrative of Neh., viii, is reproduced immediately after that of Esdras, ix-x; but the author of the Third Book of Esdras was led to do this by the fact that Neh., viii, presents his hero as reader of the Law.
Esdras was probably still a very young man at this time, and all he does is to read the Law before the assembled people.

2) There appears to be considerable confusion about 2 Esdras, with many authorities identifying it as a part of the “Septuagint Plus,” works that are in the Septuagint but not in the Hebrew Old Testament.
However, the Septuagint book of 2 Esdras is quite plainly in the Hebrew canon, being comprised of Ezra and Nehemiah.
This other 2 Esdras (3 Esdras in the Slavonic Bible and 4 Esdras in an appendix to the Vulgate) is an apocalyptic work.

 Learning Bible Intro - 2 Esdras - ForMinistry
The book of 2 ESDRAS is written as a series of visions and prophecies that were given to Ezra, the priest who is sometimes referred to as the "second founder of Judaism" after Moses (see Ezra 7-10; Neh 8).
It is generally agreed that this book known as 2 ESDRAS is actually made up of three different writings: Chapters 1 and 2 (in some traditions called 2 or 5 Ezra); Chapters 3 through 14 (sometimes known as 4 Ezra); and Chapters 15 and 16 (also known as 5 or 6 Ezra).
The three-headed eagle in 2 Esdras 11, 12 seems to fit the Roman rulers Vespasian (A.D. 69-79), Titus (A.D. 79-81), and Domitian (A.D. The roaring lion (11:37) is associated with God's Messiah.

The English 2 Esdras is the apocalyptic Esdras and stands immediately after the English and Greek 1 Esdras.
With the exception of 1 Esdras 3:1 through 5:6--the incident of the royal banquet and the contest for a prize of the three young men--the present books agree in everything essential, down to the minutest details, with the canonical Ezra and part of 2 Chronicles and Nehemiah.
It must be admitted that 1 Esdras and Josephus preserve the true sequence of the events chronicled in Nehemiah 7:73 through 10, the Massoretic Text and the Greek version based on it having gone wrong at this point, probably through the mixing of Hebrew skins or leaves.

 2 Esdras - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the Septuagint and for Eastern Orthodox Christians, 2 Esdras refers to the combination of Ezra and Nehemiah.
Once Jerome's 1 and 2 Esdras were denoted Ezra and Nehemiah in more recent times, the designation 2 Esdras became common in protestant bibles until it dropped out altogether.
The Russian Orthodox Church, which accords this book canonical status in the Slavonic Bible, calls it 3 Esdras, with Ezra being "1 Esdras" and the Septuagint 1 Esdras being labeled as "2 Esdras".

Epiphanius (On the Twelve Gems) speaks of an 'Esdras the priest - not that Esdras who was called Salathiel, whose father was Zorobabel, which Zorobabel was son to Jechonias.' Epiphanius - who is wrong, by the way - in his genealogy, nowhere shows any knowledge of IV Esdras.
Authority definitely states that Esdras the prophet, the author of IV Esdras, and Esdras the scribe, the author of the canonical Ezra, lived about 100 years apart.
Also IV Esdras is dated, in its opening words, in the thirtieth year after the ruin of the city, whereas Ezra the scribe belongs to the middle of the next century.

2 KINGS (2 SAMUEL) This historical book centers upon King David and the momentous events of his early reign: the civil war; the transfer of the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem, which David makes his capital; and the messianic promise that an eternal throne will be given to one of David's lineage.
The Israelite kings of this period are condemned because instead of maintaining the divinely-revealed worship, they established rival shrines in opposition to the Temple and, in contravention to the Covenant, failed to suppress the "high places" of the pagan god Baal.
It continues the account of the First Book of Paralipomenon by continuing the summary of salvation history from the period of King Solomon's reign, the start and finish of the building of his Temple, the religious reforms introduced to counter disorder and anarchy, the fall of Jerusalem, and finally the Babylonian exile (597 B.C.).
