1 & 2 Kings

By Scott Brown, 2017/08/03

These two books, spanning 450 years of history, illustrate how a kingdom divided against itself cannot stand. 1 Kings begins where 2 Samuel leaves off, during the final days of David’s life at around 971 B.C. Just after Solomon’s death (1 Kings 11:43), the kingdom was divided in two. Israel occupied the northern kingdom and Judah occupied the southern kingdom. The northern kingdom rejected God’s pattern of worship first and was destroyed in 722 B.C. Then the southern kingdom of Judah followed in her footsteps and was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar in 586 B.C.
