Chapter Summary

In spite of many criticisms, corrections and remodellings the concept of a Deuteronomistic history (DtrH) still holds sway over biblical scholarship. One of the questions still much discussed is that of the sources of the DtrH. This chapter focuses on one possible source, a Chronicle of the Kings of Judah (CKJ ) and has long believed that there is evidence for the use of a chronicle or chronicles as an important source by the DtrH. Chronicles generally give concise summaries of activities and are more than bare king lists. The extant chronicles are generally compilations of reigns over a considerable period of time.
