1 & 2 Chronicles

By Scott Brown, 2017/08/03

Here we encounter the same period of time as 1 and 2 Samuel and 1 and 2 Kings. This is similar to how the four Gospels were written by four different men of the same time period but with different perspectives. In the original Hebrew Bible, Chronicles was the final book of the Old Testament, not Malachi. The perspective of the book is that the exile is over. God’s people have returned to the land. However, their enthusiasm is flagging. They have fallen into the old patterns as Ezra, Nehemiah and Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi show. God is proving that He did indeed fulfill the prophesies and the threats of Deuteronomy 28.
