Details

The Chronicler wrote as a pastoral theologian. The congregation he addressed was an Israel separated from its former days of blessing by a season of judgment. The books of 1 and 2 Chronicles address a divine word of healing and reaffirm the hope of restoration to a nation that needed to regain its footing in God’s promises and to reshape its life before God. The Chronicler expounds the Bible as he knows it, skillfully weaving his commentary into the linear text of Israel’s history. His theme is straightforward—the promises of God revealed in the Davidic covenant are as trustworthy and as effective as the God who first uttered them.
