Key Chapters of the Bible

Apr 27, 2022

We serve a Triumphant King! And today we'll dig into 1st Chronicles 17 to see how this passage ties right into Jesus' Triumphal Entry and draws our focus to His ultimate kingdom. Join us as we turn to an encouraging chapter from the life of David!


1. The podcast mentions that there are several similarities between the books of Kings and Chronicles, specifically that 1st Chronicles… focuses on David, covers both the Northern Kingdom and Southern Kingdom, seeks to explain Israel’s downfall in terms of how they broke their covenant with God, and was written around the time of the return from exile to remind the people that they were still God’s covenant nation. Why do you think these points were needed as God’s people returned from exile?

2. The podcast also mentions that an underlying purpose of the book of 1st Chronicles was to show that just as God was faithful to His promises to bring judgment, He would also be faithful to bring restoration. How would this have given the people hope in their time of exile?

3. Since we’ve already discussed the Davidic covenant from 2nd Samuel 7 a few weeks ago, as you have come to today’s study in 1st Chronicles 17, what is your understanding of its significance?

4. In verse 4, what does the Lord tell David regarding His reasons for not having David build a temple? What does this show us about the priority the Lord places on fancy buildings?

5. In the past, we’ve explained that a “Covenant” is a formal set of promises that one (or more) people make to another. In this passage, the Lord makes 8 key promises. In the space below, write the gist of each promise for each verse:

a. Verse 8:

b. Verse 9:

c. Verse 10:

d. Verse 11:

e. Verse 12:

f. Verse 13 (#1):

g. Verse 13 (#2):

h. Verses 14:

6. Having just finished our study of 1st and 2nd Kings, how many kings in those books fulfilled these promises (hint: You don’t have to look up the reigns of any kings to answer this question)? Who is the only King who fulfilled these 8 promises?

7. How has Jesus fulfilled some of these promises already? How will the rest be fulfilled?

8. In light of these promises, how can you praise the Lord today?
