The Kings of Israel

Six books in the Bible center around with Israel’s monarchy, spanning over five hundred years and 167 chapters!  While somewhat neglected, these books offer some of the most vivid teaching on God’s sovereignty, human depravity, and God’s eternal plan of salvation through the Davidic Messiah.  Many better known books spell out the theology explicitly that is left implicit in these narratives of violence, betrayal, and at times painful irony.
