What is the status of land settled by the Jews who came into Israel under Yehoshua as well as by the Jews who came to Israel led by Ezra? What is the status of land settled by Jews after the time of Ezra, but during the second Beit haMikdash? What is the status of land settled only by Jews who entered Israel under Yehoshua? And what is the status of land that was deliberately set aside "for support of the needy during shemitah"?
