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.
