Help Me Teach the Bible: Mike Bullmore on 2 Chronicles

Nancy Guthrie | October 1, 2015

In this episode of Help Me Teach the Bible, I talk with Mike Bullmore about what may be one of the least-studied books in the Bible. The book of 2 Chronicles is rich in story and encouragement to trust God to be faithful to his promises. Bullmore is senior pastor of CrossWay Community Church in Bristol, Wisconsin, and author of The Gospel and Scripture: How to Read the Bible (Crossway, 2011).

Topics include:

  • Why study 2 Chronicles?
  • How do we prepare people to understand the two histories of 2 Chronicles?
  • What is the purpose of 2 Chronicles?
  • What is the difference between 1–2 Kings and 1–2 Chronicles?
  • What is the divine promise 1–2 Chronicles is arguing God will be faithful to?
  • What is the angst of the situation in Judah?
  • How does the chronicler’s record of Solomon reveal his purpose in writing?
  • How does the theme of temple run throughout this book, and, in fact, through the whole Bible?
  • How is Christ anticipated in 2 Chronicles?
  • How should teachers bring content from the prophets into teaching 2 Chronicles?
  • What kind of moral instruction is in 2 Chronicles?
  • How do we teach 2 Chronicles 7:14 rightly?
