A few more words about this episode

First and Second Chronicles were written after the books of Samuel and Kings, and tell many of the same stories. So unless something new or interesting is included in these books, I won't repeat them here. I have, however, provided links to the stories in the books of Samuel and Kings, as well as the corresponding podcast episodes.

There are also many passages that are too boring or uninteresting to include in the podcast. These are mentioned in the podcast text, with links to the passages in the SAB.

But what is most noticeable in the two Chronicles books is not what is in them. It's what is left out. Here is a list of things that are included in the books of Samuel and Kings that are not mentioned in First Chronicles:
