Transcript of 1 & 2 Chronicles

1 & 2 Chronicles 1. Sometimes called the "secondary history"
2. Much more pro-Davidic and Davidic descendents
3. Similar to the situation in which the New Testament has four gospels
4. Aware of the other history (2 Chronicles 27:7; 35:27; 36:8)
5. Covers Adam all the way to fall of Judah in 586
6. Orginally one work, not two 1 Chronicles
1. Author traditionally believed to have been Ezra
2. Reputation for being boring (first 9 chapters are geneaologies interspersed with a few stories)

4. David is the focal point of the book
- idealized (organizes the people, makes plans for the temple)
- symbol of future hope 1 Chronicles 13
