What is Christianity?

Christianity is about God reaching out his hand in friendship to mankind. Christians believe that the whole world and everything in it was created by God. God is a personal being, a living God who is three, yet one: Father, Son and Spirit, just as we human beings have body, mind and soul! (see the Trinity).

The Bible says God created people in his image, to love him. Yet every person has rebelled against God and sinned. Yet instead of turning his back on us, God became a man, Jesus, who most scholars believe was born about the year 4 BC and lived among us. He taught a message of love throughout Palestine but public opinion turned against him and he was executed as a young man.

He died because of us - the death that we should have died. He was crucified on a cross, but he rose from the dead, and now calls us to trust him, to love him and to repent of our rebellion. If we do this, then we our relationship with God becomes restored and we will live forever with God.

Many non-Christians may think that being a Christian is about belonging to a particular church or following a certain set of rule. Most Christians however would agree that at its root, being a Christian means to be in a living relationship with Jesus.

May Scripture Portion for Bible Commentary : 1 Chronicles 7 - Job 11 including the books of Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther

In reading Chronicles we must remember that we are covering basically the same thing we have studied in the Books of Samuel and Kings. Like the four Gospels of the New Testament , each book approaches Israel's history in a different way.

Chapter 9 gives us the original of Israel's and Judah 's genealogies. In chapter 10 we observe Saul's overthrow and his death. The first 12 verses can be paralleled with I Samuel 31. The writer of Chronicles uses the downfall of Saul and his sons as a spring board to introduce the Lord's true king, David. Verses 13 and 14 of chapter 10 give us the reason for Saul's failure--his disobedience and unfaithfulness.

Chapter 11 gives us David's ascension as king. In verses 1- 9, as well as in II Samuel 5:1-3, we see David anointed king of Hebron. The list of all his warriors is given in verses 10-47, and can also be certified in II Samuel 23:8-39. We may note the additional names listed here in Chronicles, over and beyond the ones given in II Samuel.
