What does Nehemiah 12:1 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Nehemiah 12:1

Now these are the priests and the Levites that went up
with Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Jeshua
Who went up from the captivity in Babylon to Jerusalem with them; the one was the prince, the other the high priest, the same with Joshua the high priest, ( Zechariah 3:1 ) , the names of the priests are given in this and the six following verses:

Seraiah, Jeremiah, Ezra;
not Jeremiah the prophet, who cannot be thought to live so long as through the captivity; but Ezra may be Ezra the priest and scribe, who might come up with Zerubbabel to Jerusalem, and return to Babylon again, and from thence come again as he did, in the seventh year of Artaxerxes, ( Ezra 7:1 Ezra 7:6 Ezra 7:7 ) , though this by some F13 is not thought very probable.
