The old testament books of chronicles tell the stories of the kings of Judea. They were supposedly written by  Ezra the scribe and completed by Nehemiah. Though probably based in part on the parallel narrative in the book of Kings, they include historically verifiable references that are not in the book of Kings ( see 1 Kings 1 and 2 Kings 1), including details about Hezekiah's Tunnel, apparently drawing on other sources or earlier versions of the book of Kings.   Read more about the books of Chronicles.

Preface to the First Edition of the King James Bible

The bible and Zionism

The Bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, is accepted by the three major Western faiths. It is a major work of Western civilization. The Bible documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
