    Commentary by Nancy J. Collins. Study questions by Kathy Rowland.

    Following 1 & 2 Samuel, 1 Kings continues the history of Israel’s monarchy in light of God’s covenants. During the period of 1 Kings, the kingdom of Israel was divided between Israel in the north and Judah to the south. There were evil rulers such as Ahab and Jezebel…


    …and godly rulers such as Solomon and Jehoshaphat. Many prophets were sent by God to Israel during this period, notably Elijah. In spite of Judah’s failure to serve the Lord wholeheartedly, and of Israel’s kings to serve Him at all, we will see God continue to carry out His covenant plan for His people.

    Commentary by Nancy J. Collins, study questions by Kathy Rowland

    The book of 1 Samuel covers a period of about 115 years, and is a pivotal point in the history of Israel. The long period of the rule of the judges ended under the prophet Samuel, and royal history began with the anointing of Saul and later David.


    The history and lessons of this book are presented to us in the form of biography of Samuel’s, Saul’s and David’s early years. As with other books of the Bible, 1 Samuel records man’s failure and God’s faithfulness. Within its pages we see God’s long-suffering with those in rebellion against Him, and we see what God can do in and through those who are committed to serving Him.

    Following 1 & 2 Samuel, 1 & 2 Kings continues the history of Israel’s monarchy in light of God’s covenants. During the period of 2 Kings, the kingdom of Israel continued to be divided between Israel in the north and Judah to the south. There were evil rulers such as Athaliah and Manasseh.…


    …and godly rulers such as Hezekiah and Josiah. During this period God sent many prophets to His people, notably Elisha and Isaiah. In spite of the downfall and captivity of all Israel by the end of 2 Kings, the future remained open for a new work of the Lord in faithfulness to His promise to the house of David.

    Commentary by Nancy J. Collins, study questions by Kathy Rowland

    Second Samuel continues the narrative begun in 1 Samuel, with David being acclaimed king in Israel. He makes Jerusalem his royal city and brings the Ark of the Lord there. We see the glory and success of David’s reign, as well as his weaknesses and failures.

    Within the pages of 2 Samuel God uncovers David’s humanity. You will discover that this “man after God’s own heart” (see Acts 13:22) was a sinful human, like us all, who had to depend on God’s mercy and faithfulness.

    Daniel: Chapters 1-6 covers the personal history of the prophet Daniel. (The prophetic portions of the book of Daniel are covered in Prophecy in the Book of Daniel.) His story shows the sovereign God ruling over men and nations.


    Although Daniel began as a captive in Babylon, he held high positions under several kings of powerful empires. In spite of pressures to join the religion and immoral lifestyle of Babylon, Daniel lived a life devoted to the one true God.

    Commentary by Robert S. Ricker, study questions by Kathy Rowland

    The book of Ecclesiastes was written by the “Teacher,” whom many Bible scholars believe to be King Solomon. The Teacher takes stock of the world as he has experienced it, and discovers that human wisdom, even that of a godly person, has limits…


    …It cannot find out the larger purposes of God or the ultimate meaning of man’s existence. Although man is in mad pursuit of one thing and then another, these things all turn out to be meaningless. In contrast, a life centered on God takes on purpose and meaning. With God’s presence, all of life and God’s good gifts to us are to be gratefully received, used, and enjoyed to the full.

    Although God’s name is not mentioned in the book of Esther, every page is full of God, who hides Himself behind every word. The book of Esther tells the story of a Hebrew girl who was hidden away for God’s purpose and then, when the time was right,…

    …was brought to the front to work out His plan. God used Queen Esther—who was willing to risk her own life—to save His people Israel, so that they might bless the whole world through Jesus Christ.

    Commentary by Jean W. Randall, study questions by Kathy Rowland

    Covers Exodus chapters 1-24. Exodus, the second book of the Old Testament, continues the narrative begun in the book of Genesis.  We find God’s chosen people, Israel, living in Egypt. Although they originally came as honored guests because they were Joseph’s family,…


    …they have multiplied in number and been enslaved by the Egyptians. Exodus tells of God’s redemption of Israel from this bondage, and of His guidance of the people to the land of promise. God’s purpose in history is revealed through this account of redemption, covenant, and the building of the tabernacle, all of which picture God’s plan that would be fulfilled through Jesus Christ.  The final lessons  cover selected portions of Numbers, Deuteronomy and Joshua, showing how Israel finally settled in the land of promise under Joshua’s leadership.
