THE SECOND BOOK OF CHRONICLES

2 CHRONICLES

 

Overview:

2 Chronicles was named after its primary subject matter, which is a history of the kings of Israel and Judah. This book may be studied in three parts:

(1) Summary of the Life of Solomon (2 Chronicles 1:1-31),
(2) The Divided Monarchy (10:1-28:21), and
(3) The Southern Kingdom from Hezekiah to the Babylonian Exile (29:1-36:23).

Authorship:

Rabbinic and early church tradition attribute this book to Ezra, whose book that bears his name dovetails with the conclusion of this work. The author of this book also used a number of ancient, but now lost, resources to compose and/or edit a history of events recorded after King Cyrus of Persia issued his command for the exiles to return to Israel.

Composition Date:

The structure of this work suggests that it was edited into the final form in which we have it today sometime after Judah’s return from exile. This work (36:20) refers to the rise of the “Kingdom of Persia”, which sets an earliest possible date for the book at about 539 BC. That the Septuagint version of Chronicles is quoted by the Greek writer Eupolemos suggests that a completed form of the book existed as late as about 180 BC, about which time the Septuagint era writer Ben Sira appears to base his description of King David in his apocryphal book at Sirach 47:8-10 on Chronicles. Some conservative scholars date this book to about the fourth century, BC.

Messianic Hope:

The Messiah as Greater than Solomon
