Day 187

2 Kings & 2 Chronicles

Last year I took an Old Testament Survey class and it was amazingly helpful in learning the basics but was we go through each chapter, I realize I want to know more and more. I love history, and while I am confused at first glance with some of the names, charts like the one below can sure help me.

Remember that when they call David someone’s father, it’s a general term of the family line. And that sleep means death in these passages. Last, you’ll see a photo of some of the Old Testament idols that have been found. I can’t even begin to imagine worshipping one of those when we have a Living God.

Here’s another map that shows the divided Kingdom of Judah and Israel.
