Come to the House of the Lord. 2 Chronicles 29-30; 32-34

I published another article about select sections of the Old Testament (otherwise known as the Hebrew Bible).  This article is entitled: “Come to the House of the Lord. 2 Chronicles 29-30; 32-34.”

Opening paragraph reads:

In the days of Ancient Israel all was not well. A careful study of the Biblical record reveals that a near continual battle existed between those seeking to establish the worship of Jehovah and those seeking to establish the worship of other gods and goddess who competed for the time, resources and affection of the Israelites.  This ongoing battle traces a cycle of wickedness, decline, repentance, prosperity and then a return to wickedness again.  The history of Israel as well as the lives and words of her prophets can in part be defined by this battle over proper worship.  When righteous leaders were in power a solemn invitation centered on temple worship was in effect: “Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths.” (Micah 4:2)
