(2 Chr 35.1–19 ). 1 Esdras begins witha celebration. This event constitutes a high point, with the holy ark duly installed in the Temple. According to 2 Kings 23.21–23 and 2 Chr 34.14–33 , the Passover celebration concluded the religious reform of Josiah, king of Judah (640–609 bce). In 1 Esdras the account of the reform itself is omitted. The author of 1 Esdras is interested in the continuity between the First and Second Temples, and thus does not depict Josiah as a reforming king.
