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.
