The Book of 1 Kings
The book of 1 Kings provides a theological explanation of Israel’s later kings in relationship to the theological vision outlined in the book of Deuteronomy. This explanation is critical for those initially reading the book so that they could move forward in their present times with a faith grounded in the one God who controls both nature and history. The books maintain that it is this good and all-powerful God who oversaw the destruction of his chosen city and temple, and the exile to Babylon, in 586 B.C. because of Israel’s great sinfulness. Yet there remains hope because God’s chosen royal line has not come to an end, and God remains ready to forgive those who are repentant.
