The Fall and Restoration of a Servant
From Series: "Taking a Spiritual Perspective AM"
An 8 part series working through the book of 1 Kings. 1 & 2 Kings forms one book but is split in two from the shear length of the book. It is an account of the kings of Israel which applies the Deuteronomic book of the law to how well the kings lived up to it. It is clear that 1 Kings is not just a history of the lives of the kings of Israel. It’s obvious choice and emphasis on certain events tells us that it takes a particular view of history and those events. We can presume that it takes the perspective of God as he watches his people and their kings and passes judgement on them. Lessons are to be learnt as God provides his evaluation of the lives of not only the kings but Israel and its prophets.
