This week we’ll cross a barrier that you may not notice, so in this episode I’ll walk you through it.
After 2 Kings takes us through the fall of Jerusalem, we jump right to 1 Chronicles, and the clock restarts on the stories we’ve been reading so far. 1 Chronicles begins with a genealogy that goes all the way back to Adam (yes, Adam!) then the rest of 1 & 2 Chronicles retells the stories from 1 & 2 Samuel and 1 & 2 Kings, but with several notable exceptions. Why? Because now they’re told as an encouragement instead of a warning.
If you want further information about the differences between the books of Samuel/Kings and the Chronicles, check out this helpful article, What is the Difference Between Samuel/Kings and Chronicles? from Stephen J Bedard.
The Bible Reading Coach podcast is designed to help anyone read through the Bible in a year. In 10-15 minutes each Friday, I’ll introduce you to the passage for the following week, including:
- What it’s about
- How to deal with challenging passages
- How the original readers saw it
- How it applies today
- And much more
After listening, take the next week to read the passage on your own. This time you’ll have a clearer understanding of it.

As we enjoy the last of the History books and tackle the first of the Wisdom books, we’ll have a week of reading that is fascinating, challenging and fulfilling.
When competence is abundant, but character is rare, the old-school character traits of integrity, kindness, hospitality, and simplicity become cool again.
What happens when God’s people cooperate under a God-given plan? These books tell us about it in one of the great collaborations in the entire Bible.
