My Comments

What is with the Chronicles being word for word copies of previous passages? What kind of sense does this make? I can understand revisiting older stories and retelling them with a bit more information added here or there, but again we have another copy paste story. Seriously, 15:16 is word for word the same as 1 Kings 15:13. Same thing that happened Wednesday with the Queen of Sheba story. It's all verbatim. So what's the point of retelling the story if you're just going to say it the exact same way? And these stories are from 1 and 2 Kings which makes it even more ridiculous because these were the books we JUST finished. It'd be like if a show did a flashback episode of the episode they just showed. We remember what happened, we don't need a recap.

That nonsense is only allowed if Clerks the Animated Series does it, and only because when they do it it's hilarious.

Monday: More 2 Chronicles
