This Sunday's message: The Song of Zechariah

February 16

Today's reading: 1 Chronicles 2:1-55

1 and 2 Chronicles tell the story of Israel and Judah, starting with Adam and ending with the return of the Jewish exiles from Babylon (538 BC). The account begins with a collection of genealogies (1 Chr 1–9) and then shifts to King David (in the remainder of 1 Chronicles) and his descendants (in 2 Chronicles).

The genealogy in 1 Chronicles 2 traces the lineage from Jacob, through his son Judah all the way to David. While this genealogy may seem a bit boring to us, it is actually very important because it confirms the Old Testament prophecies that indicated the Messiah would come from the lines of both Judah and David. This is one more proof that we can count 100% on the promises of God.
