1 Kings12-22 Concordia Commentary

1 Kings12-22 Concordia Commentary
The book of Kings is a history, written in a selective manner, for the sake of theology. Primarily covering more than 380 years of the history of Israel and its monarchy, from the last part of David's rule to the end of the kingship in Judah, the book of Kings also emphasizes prophets.

Despite this concentration, the main subject of this body of literature is still God. This history presents God - the holy, righteous, just, merciful, compassionate, gracious omnipotent, and omniscient Deity - in relationship with Israel.

Keeping in the Biblically faithful, Gospel-centered tradition of the acclaimed Concordia Commentary series, this newest addition to the series displays God as the Ruler of the nations, the God of chastisement and punishment, but also the God of deliverance and salvation.
