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 God's people about how they should worship him in his temple. His people needed to remember how he had rescued them from Egypt where they had been slaves. He wanted to show them that they were his special people. He wanted them to become a strong nation again because they obeyed him.
