2 Chronicles and 1 Chronicles was originally one book. The book of 2 Chronicles covers from about the year 970 B.C. to 538 B.C. In previous studies a number of events that are in 2 Chronicles have been looked at. This study will look mainly at three good kings of Judah and truths we can learn from their lives. King Asa (about 911-870 B.C.) made a deal with the king of Syria that many today may be tempted to think was a great strategic victory. However, that was certainly not the way God viewed this event. King Jehoshaphat (around 873-848 B.C.) wrongly helped Ahab King of Israel. In this story we see how King Ahab did not want to hear from a prophet of the Lord. When the true prophet came before the two kings and all the false prophets, how did he deliver God’s message while having so many outward reasons to discourage him? One reason Micaiah was able to speak God’s truth was because He had seen the LORD on His throne, and the heavenly host standing on His right and left hand. Hezekiah (about 715-686 B.C.) was part of a story that appears in three different Old Testament books; 2 Kings, 2 Chronicles, and Isaiah. The Assyrian King, Sennacherib, threatened Judah and spoke wicked words against the God of Judah. This is a story, like many others, that helps remind us to always trust in the Lord. The book ends years after King Hezekiah (538 B.C.) with Cyrus telling the Jews, who had been exiled, to go back to Jerusalem and rebuild the temple.
