Could you please explain the purpose of Chronicles in the Bible?
It begins with lots of genealogies from Adam on.
Then it recaps stories from the 2 Books of Samuel (including King David)
and from the 2 Books of Kings. Why are these recaps necessary?
Does Chronicles also recap other parts of the Bible - Torah, Joshua, Judges, Prophets?
Which the Lord of Hosts blessed them, saying, "Blessed is My People Egypt, and the work of My hands Assyria, and My heritage Israel."
Christians say this verse implies that gentiles will be the People of God through Jesus. Is it true? What is the proper interpretation of this verse?
Hi Rabbi, I’m Jewish but never had any formal Jewish education. I want to start studying but also need to work, so I’m wondering if Torah study is meant for someone like me or only for fulltime scholars. Thanks!
Follow-Up to Avraham, Nachor, and Haran
Genesis 11:26 And Terah lived SEVENTY YEARS, and he begot Abram, Nahor, and Haran.
One commentary states that Terah was not 70 when Abraham was born, rather Terah was 130.
Terah died at 205 and Abraham was 75 when he left Haran. 205 - 75 = 130.
What is your opinion about Terah's age at Abraham's birth - 70 years old or 130 years old?
Genesis 11:26 states that Terah begot Abraham, Nahor, and Haran.
Were Terah's three sons triplets?
If the answer is no (which is what I believe), in what order were the sons born and what age was Terah at each of their births?
Terah died at 205 years.
How old was Terah when he took the family out of Ur?
How old was Haran when he died?
