Learn what Samuel and Kings say through their own words and through the lens of their original contexts, and discover how they shape discipleship today. This two-course Kings of Israel Bundle will not only enrich your understanding of the Historical Books, it will also improve your exegetical skills. From the birth of Samuel to the exiles of Israel and Judah, these courses explore the textual and theological issues in these historical books.

In OT321 Book Study: 1 & 2 Samuel, Dr. David Lamb provides an in-depth study of the book of Samuel, beginning with an introduction to the composition of the book and continuing with discussion of the roles of biblical prophets, the seven major sections of Samuel, various textual issues, poetry, and key themes.

In OT325 Book Study: 1 & 2 Kings, Dr. David Lamb explores the book of Kings, including a discussion of where Kings fits into the canon of Scripture, its literary issues, historical issues, theological issues, and commentary on the text.

Both of these courses are fully integrated into your existing Logos Bible Software, taking your studies and learning experience to new levels.
