By Chapter - 1 & 2 Kings
The books which we know as First and Second Kings record the history of Israel from the death of David to the Babylonian Captivity. But they are much more than a mere history of Israel. They are primarily theological in nature in that they trace God’s relationship with His Covenant people through their breaking of His covenant and their resulting punishment at the hands of their enemies. In particular, we see God’s dealing with the leaders of the nation - her prophets, priests and kings.
