You may have a sense of déja vu reading today’s passage. No, you’re not going crazy, you’ve actually read pretty much these same words before. See last week’s reflection on 2 Samuel 7:1–17.

The books of Samuel, Kings and Chronicles have a number of places where there is overlap in the telling of the story. This is because they are parrallel accounts of some of the same events. What should impress us is how similar, or in the case, nearly identical, the accounts are.

I woudl encrouage you today to go back and read the reflection from last thursday again. Share below in the comments something that you noticed this go around that, perhaps, you missed last week.
