I Chronicles 1

Notes on 1st Chronicles

Introduction

Because of the similarity between the ending of 2nd Chronicles and the beginning of Ezra, I believe that 1st and 2nd Chronicles were probably written by the same author who wrote Ezra.  They were written after the exile and are supplemental to 1st and 2nd Samuel and 1st and 2nd Kings in many ways but are distinct in that they stress the importance of the priesthood and have a noticeably hopeful tone for the returned exiles.
