Surprisingly, in the Book of First Chronicles more
history of the reign of David is found than the
genealogy of his royal line. The first 9 chapters
cover the genealogy from Adam to Saul. From chapter
10 to 29 in this Old Testament Book key events of
the reign of David and his triumphs from God's grace
and forgiveness are emphasized. Unlike the book of
Second Samuel, First Chronicles focuses on the
positive aspects of David's life to give the Jews
encouragement who had just returned from captivity.
Chronicles ends with a beautiful public prayer of
praise and the rise of Solomon. Originally the Book
of First and Second Chronicles were one book in the
Hebrew Bible. It's original title meant "The Words
of the Days" which would today interpret to "The
Events of the Times". The Greek translation (the
Septuagint) of the Hebrew Bible separated the
Chronicles out of Samuel and Kings from the things
omitted. The book Chronicles came from Jerome in his
Latin Vulgate Bible 'Chronicorum Liber'. The author
is thought to be Ezra or one of his contemporaries.
As with Luke and Acts being a continuous history,
the Book of Chronicles and Ezra go hand in hand.
