1 and 2 Chronicles



First and Second Chronicles are one book. It is uncertain who authored Chronicles. The traditional belief of rabbinical Judaism and medieval Christianity has been that Chronicles through Nehemiah were a single work written by Ezra the scribe. It is clear that the four books share many linguistic and theological concepts. Others have maintained that while Chronicles and Ezra/Nehemiah were written by one author, that author was not Ezra but another scribe. Still others maintain that Chronicles and Ezra/Nehemiah derived from different authors. Proponents of this position highlight the differences rather than similarities of literary and theological concepts. This view has become increasingly popular since the late nineteenth century among modern biblical scholars.
