2 Chronicles 28-31

  • 28:1-4 – Ahaz is basically the worst of the worst.
  • 29:5-11 – King Hezekiah was faithful and brought the Levites back to faithfulness as well.
  • 29:24 – Israel had strayed for a long time from faithfulness. The Levites were cleansing everything completely so it could return to use in the worship of the Lord.
  • 29:25-30 – This seems like a pretty spectacular worship service.
  • 30:1-9 – It’s comforting that even when we fail to do what we’re supposed to do, when we choose to return to God, he accepts us.
  • 30:18-20 – God’s extreme kindness shows here as people come and eat Passover without cleansing themselves. This harkens to the way Jesus handled the law. He always rewarded faith and always showed love even if the law had to be bent a little.
  • 30:26-27 – It had been a long time since Solomon. Hezekiah’s commitment to restoring Passover, even though imperfect, was pleasing to God.
  • 31:9-10 – Like when it was time to build the tabernacle in Exodus, the faithful Israelites bring more than enough offering.
