2nd Chronicles


Dīvrē-hayYāmīm, “words of the days”

The Books of Chronicles, Ezra, and Nehemiah are indeed exceptional works that belong to the genre of historical literature, a relevant and fascinating field of study. These three books provide us with a rich and intricate understanding of the world and society that existed during that time. Chronicles, in particular, is a critical foundation for the other two books, Ezra and Nehemiah, which provide further detail into the events and activities that took place following the captivity.

One of the most striking aspects of these works is the interconnectedness and shared purpose felt by the Jewish writers and the Christian Church Fathers of old. It is incredible to see how the narrative continues to resonate with modern readers and how it has stood the test of time throughout the centuries.

Some people may question the accuracy of Chronicles, but it remains a valuable source of historical material that offers insight into a period of great significance. Scholars estimate that Chronicles was written between 430 and 400 BC, further contributing to its appeal and attraction.

By studying these works and delving into their teachings and themes, we are transported back in time and reminded of narratives that still possess great significance today. They guide and encourage us in our present and future endeavors, providing us with a glimpse into the past, and offering us a pathway to a better and more fulfilling future.
