Dream of: 12 November 1997 "Chronicles I"

I wanted to read some more of the Old Testament Bible. I already had a fairly good grasp of the Old Testament, but I wanted to improve my knowledge. I began trying to decide which book I wanted to read, reviewing in my mind the different books and how the fit together. I knew I didn't want to read the first two books, Genesis and Exodus, because I was already familiar with most of the stories in those books. Likewise I was uninterested the next three books, Leviticus, Numbers or Deuteronomy, all of which were rather dry.

I thought that I wanted to concentrate on the period when the Israelites returned to Canaan from Egypt. It took me a moment to recall that this period began with the book of Joshua. But I likewise didn't want to begin with Joshua, or the following book, Judges. Concentrating, trying to remember, I recalled that the next books were double books - Chronicles I & II, Kings I & II, and Samuel I & II. These were the books on which I wanted to concentrate. I knew they contained accounts of my different kings and many wars. I had a general idea of the times and of the issues involved in the struggles. But I wanted to read the books again and more fully visualize and understand the stories. I finally decided I would begin with Chronicles I. I could already see myself relishing all the stories which would unfold in my mind from this book.
