    The books of 1 Kings and 2 Kings, like 1 & 2 Samuel, were originally one book. Together, Samuel and Kings relate the whole history of Israel’s monarchy, in the light of God’s covenants, from its rise under the ministry of Samuel to its fall at the hands of the Babylonians.


    The welfare of Israel and her kings is shown to depend on their obedience to God’s law. During the period of 1 & 2 Kings, the kingdom 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, Hezekiah and Josiah. Many prophets were sent by God to Israel during this period, notably Elijah and Elisha. 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.

    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.

    The book of 1 Thessalonians is a letter the apostle Paul wrote to the Christians in Thessalonica. During his visit to them sudden persecution arose, and the believers sent him away for his safety. Paul later wrote to these new Christians—who had…


    …formerly been pagans—to encourage them in their trials, to instruct them in godly living, to urge some not to neglect daily work, and to give assurance concerning the future of believers who die before Christ returns.

    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.

    Paul wrote 2 Timothy while he was imprisoned in Rome under Emperor Nero. During this time, he languished in a cold dungeon, chained like a common criminal. His friends even had a hard time finding out where he was being kept. Paul knew that his work was done and his life was nearly at an end. He wrote to Timothy, urging him to persevere in preaching the gospel, and if necessary, to suffer for it.

    In the book of Acts we see what Jesus brought about through the apostles’ preaching and the beginning of the church. We’ll study the life of Paul as he makes many missionary journeys. Though the apostles and early Christians faced bitter persecution,…


    …through the power of the Holy Spirit they successfully carried the gospel from Jerusalem to Rome and planted churches across the Roman Empire. Full of history and drama, the book of Acts provides a guide for the church to follow until Christ returns.

    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.

    Ephesians focuses on God’s eternal purpose and grace. Paul emphasizes that we have been saved, not only for our personal benefit, but also to bring praise and glory to God. God has reconciled individuals to Himself, and has reconciled these saved individuals to each other, breaking down the barriers between Jew and Gentile, male and female, slave and free.

    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. We will meet Moses, Miriam, Aaron, and Joshua. 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 which would be fulfilled through Jesus Christ. The final lessons of the Exodus Youth Study cover selected portions of Numbers, Deuteronomy and Joshua, showing how Israel finally settled in the land of promise under Joshua’s leadership.

    Genesis, the first book of the Old Testament, is the book of beginnings. It tells us about God’s creation of the heavens and the earth, and of all that is on the earth, including human beings—made in God’s image.


    Genesis relates the beginnings of sin and redemption, of society and civilization, and of marriage and family. It gives the life stories of Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph, telling of both their faith and their failures, and seeing God’s hand on their lives. The book of Genesis is the foundation for understanding the rest of the Bible, and understanding God’s plan for our lives today.

    The book of Judges covers the period in Israel’s history after the death of Joshua until the establishment of the monarchy under King Saul.


    At that time the people were ruled by judges whom God raised up to deliver His oppressed people—oppressions brought on by their own disobedience. In Judges we see a continuing cycle of God’s blessing, Israel’s rebellion, God’s disciplining, their repentance, and God’s deliverance and blessing again. In the stories of people such as Deborah, Gideon and Samson, we see God’s faithfulness, His patience and His grace.
