Abstract

CEZULA, Ntozakhe Simon. The Chronicler as a biblical paradigm for a theology of reconstruction in Africa: an exploration of 2 Chronicles 6:32. Old testam. essays [online]. 2016, vol.29, n.2, pp.277-296. ISSN 2312-3621.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17159/2312-3621/2016/v29n2a4.

This article responds to a challenge posed by Jesse Mugambi to propose a biblical paradigm for the reconstruction process in Africa. It proposes Chronicles as a biblical paradigm for the reconstruction process in Africa vis-à-vis Nehemiah whom Mugambi proposes. To motivate its proposition, the article examines 2 Chr 6:32. However, to justify its conclusion about 2 Chr 6:32 the article needs to establish that this verse purports the Chronistic theology contrary to the theology of the Vorlage. To do this, the article examines the use of Psalm 132:8-10 in 2 Chr 6:40-42.

Keywords : Psalm 132; 2 Chr 6; Biblical Paradigm; Chronicler; Deuteronomist; Foreigner; Nehemiah; Theology of Reconstruction.
