Day 135

2 Chronicles 18-20

Blah blah blah

Blah blah blah

Chapter 18

A reprise of 1 Kings 22. Nothing strikes me as significantly different here.

Chapters 19 and 20

Ditto. These chapter conclude the reign of Jehoshophat.

Clearly the point of Chronicles, if you haven’t already figured it out, is to glorify the Hebrew kings, particularly David’s lineage. Sordid personal details that were included in the original accounts in the books of Samuel and Kings, but which are irrelevant to the purpose of the author(s) of Chronicles, are omitted in this retelling. These are abridged, watered down, and sanitized versions of the original stories. Kind of like what happened to Grimm’s Fairy Tales when Disney got hold of them. I’m so glad we’re almost done with this tripe.
