The Knowing the Bible series is a resource designed to help Bible readers better understand and apply God’s Word. These 12-week studies lead participants through books of the Bible and are made up of four basic components: (1) reflection questions help readers engage the text at a deeper level; (2) “Gospel Glimpses” highlight the gospel of grace throughout the book; (3) “Whole-Bible Connections” show how any given passage connects to the Bible’s overarching story of redemption, culminating in Christ; and (4) “Theological Soundings” identify how historic orthodox doctrines are taught or reinforced throughout Scripture. With contributions from an array of influential pastors and church leaders, these gospel-centered studies will help Christians see and cherish the message of God’s grace on every page of the Bible.
The books of 1 and 2 Chronicles were written to unify the people of Israel around the true worship of God. After the trauma of exile and facing political opposition in their return to the land, they needed to know that God would prove gracious to those who repent of their sin.
This accessible study walks readers through these two Old Testament books over the course of 12 weeks, pointing them to God’s mercy, compassion, and forgiveness—and his promise to bless his people by dwelling with them forever.
