Official Records of Israel

“On several occasions Ezra is referred to as a scribe.  Consistent with that role, it is thought that he is one of several scribes who may have compiled chronicles of Israel’s history.  Undoubtedly, a man of God such as Ezra would be particularly concerned that future generations be made aware of Israel’s unique status as a chosen nation through which God has revealed himself to the whole world.

An important part of any nation’s history is the preservation of national archives.  Genealogical records are particularly vital to the division and ownership of property, to marriages and inheritance, to right of office, and to royal privilege.  Perhaps one of the most important reasons for the genealogies will not be fully appreciated until the Messiah is born.  At that time one of the many proofs of his messiahship will be that he is of the lineage of King David and the house of Judah, just as the prophets have foretold.

Included in the records are the following: genealogies from Adam to Noah to Abraham and Isaac; the descendants of Esau; and the 12 tribes descending from Jacob, with the exception of Dan and Zebulun.  Special emphasis is given to the royal tribe of Judah, the priestly line of Levi, and the Benjamite genealogy of King Saul.”

Absalom’s Rebellion

“Perhaps nothing is sadder for a righteous father than to be burdened with a rebellious son — a son who so envies his father’s power that he is willing to oppose him openly and to disgrace him in every possible way.

As the historical record of this period begins, there is record of the birth of David’s son Solomon.  Solomon will prove to be of an altogether different character from that of his brother, and will one day succeed his father on the throne.”

David Becomes King

“David must surely have mixed emotions as he considers the future.  He is obviously relieved to be free of Saul’s constant threats, but the mantle of responsibility is now his.  (His kingship over all Israel is still some seven years away.  He must rule over Judah alone until civil conflict is resolved and he is accepted by all the people.

The account of these initial years begins with David seeking God’s guidance — one of the many traits which makes David such a special leader for God’s people.”
