This is a continuation of my ongoing report. I recently decided to listen to the Bible in an effort to gain a closer relationship with God. I purposefully listen not with the intent to study. I have a hard time reading the Bible I just start looking things up and I don't make much progress. I am listening to the Bible Experience (http://www.inspiredby.com/) which is a dramatized NIV version with many famous African American leaders, singers, actors and artists. (Even Samuel L. Jackson) As I listen through the Bible, hopefully I will make it all the way through, I will post notes and thoughts I have.
The book dates itself to the Babylonian captivity. Makes me think it was someone from Judah who wrote it.
The book of the Kings of Judah and the book of the kings of Israel are referenced again. (First referenced in 1 and 2 Kings).
The book claims to be a partial genealogy that more of the genealogy is in the books of the kings of Judah and Israel. Also stated genealogy information was also kept in the local towns.
This book gets into King David's rule of Israel.
There is a story of someone who was stuck down for touching the ark. I always wondered why if he was only being helpful.
God blessed those to had the Ark.
Some of the stories are coved in other books but from a different point of view. I wonder why?
God gives military advice.
King David wore a linen Ephod. Why? King and priest illusion?
David made a new tent for the Ark, I was wondering what happened to the original tent. Well it is talked about later in 2 Chronicles.
Satan is mentioned, it has been a bit of time since he was last mentioned.
David had a great speech. He said he would not sacrifice to God something that cost him nothing. A man after Gods own heart.
David reorganized the Levi priests because some of the jobs were not needed since the ark was not moving around regularly.
