Nevi'im and Ketuvim (Nach) serves as the extended form of the written Torah. It is the prophecies and meaningful histories of our people until the destruction of the first temple. It records an era rich with meaning and prophecy. Although the Jewish people are recorded to transgress constantly one must be mindful of the temptations of that era and that only things that can serve as fundamental lessons are recorded. Although they record history their importance serves a greater purpose and is used to teach and thus are not just chronicles.
