Project #86721 - PHIL 1316

1. Short Answer Assignment After reading Chapter 28, discuss the importance of 2 Chronicles 36:22-23 as the formal ending of the Hebrew Bible. What kind of message does this declaration of Cyrus send to the Jews in the Diaspora? Does this message differ from the one found at the conclusion of most English translations of the Hebrew Bible (Malachi 4:1-5)? If so, how? At least 100 words. 2. Reflection Paper Read Chapter 28 closely. There seems to be a concern that the author of 1-2 Chronicles has changed the "real" history that is found in 1-2 Kings. There is a list on page 352 that includes many things the Chronicler "left out" of his narrative. In light of the Greek title of 1-2 Chronicles (Paralipomenon = "what was omitted") how might you respond to the charge that the Chronicler was leaving things out of his version of the history of Israel? Some things to consider as you prepare your answer: What purpose would it serve for him to include things that were already found in other sources? Would there even be a need for 1-2 Chronicles if he simply rewrote 1-2 Kings? Is it fair to assume that he was restoring part of the story that really had been left out by the author of 1-2 Kings? Is it impossible to imagine the accounts that are recorded in 1-2 Chronicles as actually having taken place? If David's sins are highlighted clearly in 1-2 Samuel and Kings, why might the Chronicler want to tell the "other side" of David's story? Consider also the time-frame in which Chronicles was written and how that may affect the purpose. At least 250 words. Write clearly and correct writing errors before submission.
