History of the Book of First Chronicles

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.
