One Book: 1 & 2 Chronicles

1 & 2 Chronicles: You CAN Return Home

Cyrus, king of Persia, had just decreed that the Israelites could go back to Jerusalem to help with the rebuilding of the temple of the Lord. After many years in captivity in foreign lands, God’s people were going home!! But as the saying goes, “You can’t return home again.” What would Jerusalem be like now? What would a new life there look like? What about all God’s promises to them of land and a king on the throne?

The books of 1 & 2 Chronicles were written by the Chonicler for those going back to Jerusalem, to give them guidance and courage for the return home. The retelling of their history provided the reminder that they could — and should — confidently trust & obey God as they waited for Him to come through on His promises.

Join Pastor Marc Goodwin in Chronicles as we’re challenged that we, too, can and should trust and obey Jesus, the ultimate Promise-Keeper.
