The original Hebrew name for what was the single book of Chronicles was ‘The events of the day’ or ‘journals. After the opening chapters you can kinda see why.
The family tree of 1:1-3:24 spans from the beginning of history to a Jewish family who settles in the period after the exile.
The Chronicler goes on to focus on the royal line of Judah. No kings of the Northern tribe is mentioned. The focus is on the line descended from David.
Stay tuned tomorrow for more family trees….
