2.3 Questions for individual work/group work/discussion

  1. Because of the Nathan promise 2.Sam.7 David is interpreted as a forerunner of Christ. Where do you see the justification, where are the limits of this typology?
  2. What do you think of the observation that the two most important events of the Pentateuch, the Exodus and the Sinai Covenant, are not even mentioned in the books of Chronicles?
  3. In the history books and the work of chronicles are inseparable historical description and religious interpretation of historical events. This would no longer be considered “objective” historiography today. How do you judge this?
