2 Chronicles

About the book of 2 Chronicles

This is the story of Israel from the time of King Solomon. Perhaps the prophet Ezra or another priest or Levite wrote it. This book tells us more about the things that we can read about in the Books of the Kings. It tells the people about the temple worship. God wanted to help the people who had been slaves in another country. They were building the temple in Jerusalem. And he wanted to show them that they were special. They were God's people before they became slaves. They were still his people. So they needed to know what he had done for them. He wanted them to become a strong nation. And he wanted them to worship him again.
