Notes & Outlines
1 & 2KINGS
J. Vernon McGee
 
1 & 2 KINGS
The second in the series of three double books. Originally onebook, they were divided by the Septuagint translators.
WRITER:
Although the writer is unknown, it was written while the firsttemple was still standing (1 Kings 8:8). Jeremiah is the tradi-tional writer. Modern scholarship assigns the authorship to“the prophets.”
THEME:
Standard of the kingdom: “as David his father” (repeated 9times in 1 Kings). It was a human standard, but man failed toattain even to it.
KEYVERSES:
2 Kings 17:22, 23 and 25:21
FEATURES:
1.Practically all the rulers were evil.2.God’s patience in dealing with them.3.Names of the mothers are given of both good and badkings.4.Gods grace in sending revival when the king, with thepeople, turned to Him.5.Prominence of the prophet and insignificance of thepriest.6.Gods long delay before the captivity of both Israel andJudah.7.Man’s total inability to rule for God.8.Wicked kings who had godly sons, also good kings whohad wicked sons.
KINGDOM:
First Kings records the
division
of the kingdom; SecondKings records the
collapse
of the kingdom. Considered
 
together, they open with King David and close with the kingof Babylon. They are the book of man’s rule of God’s king-dom. The throne on earth must be in tune with the throne inheaven if blessings come and benefits accrue to the people.Yet man’s plan cannot overthrow God’s purposes.
PURPOSE:
It is a continuation of the narrative begun in 1 & 2 Samuel.Actually, 1 & 2 Samuel with 1 & 2 Kings can be viewed asone book. In these four books the history of the nation istraced from the time of its greatest extent, influence, and pros-perity under David and Solomon to the division and finallythe captivity and exile of both kingdoms.The moral teaching is to show man his inability to rulehimself and the world. In these four historical books we havethe rise and fall of the kingdom of Israel.
