2 Esdras

An account of visions that God gave to Ezra concerning the end times.

In this book (also known as 4 Ezra), Ezra the scribe poses difficult questions about the ways of God. It seems unjust that the Jewish city of Jerusalem should be devastated while the Babylonians prosper. It is inexplicable that God should allow sin and evil to continue. God replies that his ways are not human ways. Through a series of visions he tells Ezra that the current age of sin and suffering will come to an end, and that the wicked will be punished and the righteous will be vindicated. God commands Ezra to restore the holy Scriptures and Ezra obeys. The  book concludes by warning of the inescapable judgment that will come upon the wicked.
