Last week, we found out that 1 Chronicles was a rerun of 1 Samuel. Logically, it seems like 2 Chronicles would be a rerun of 2 Samuel, right? Think again. 2 Chronicles actually covers some of the same material as 1 and 2 Kings. Confused yet? Welcome to the Old Testament. 2 Chronicles starts with the reign of David’s son, King Solomon (more on him in a bit) and ends on a bit of a downer – the Babylonian captivity. In order to fully understand the Babylonian captivity, we’ll need to do a quick recap of the adventures of the Israelites up to this point.
