Details

Gain scholarly insight into the intricacies of both the events and the textual challenges of 1 Kings. Review the succession from David to Solomon, Solomon’s reign and puzzling life and chronologies of the Hebrew kings. Study the geo-political context of Israel and the shape of its international relations as it emerges as a regional power and is eventually split into two kingdoms. Simon Devries writes, “The scene is history; the players are kings and prophets; behind the curtain is the Lord of history, challenging his players to make history the scene of salvific revelation.”
