The history of the Jews form the last Judge (Samuel) to the first King (Saul) is recorded in Samuel, Kings and Chronicles. Each book is written from a different perspective. In Chronicles, the emphasis is from the priestly perspective as compared with the prophetic perspective in the Book of Kings. Chronicles continues the history of the divided kingdom. In spite of their sins, God continued to work His purposes through them …giving us cause for renewed joy at God’s grace in our lives, also!
