A STUDY IN 1 – 2 KINGS: EXPLORING HOW ONLY JESUS CHRIST MAKES SENSE OF HUMAN HISTORY AND EXPERIENCE…

Israel’s experiment with kings was ultimately doomed to failure. It was doomed, not because they were kings, but because they were human and fallen individuals. From David and Solomon, at the pinnacle of the kingdom, to the division, corruption, and ultimately destruction that followed, we have a record of the best and worst that human beings can do. But that’s not the end of the story. God had something better in mind for His people, a ruler whose kingdom would be just, devout, unconquerable, and everlasting. In the best and worst moments of 1 and 2 Kings, we find signs of the true King of all nations.
