    1 & 2 Kings

    A Commentary for Biblical Preaching and Teaching

    Kerux Commentaries enables pastors and teachers to understand and effectively present the main message in a biblical text

    Each Kerux volume enhances the reader's ability to deliver a message that is biblical, cohesive, and dynamic.

    Here Schreiner and Compson discuss reading and teaching from Old Testament historical books, including how Old Testament history relates to drastically different communities. In the case of 1 and 2 Kings, the historical players in Israel's divided monarchy are distinct from the Babylonian exiles for whom the text was compiled and even further removed from present-day readers. The biblical author of 1 and 2 Kings clearly teaches that human choice and divine sovereignty are not in conflict, nor do either absolve individual actors of the consequences they must face for their choices and actions.

    1 and 2 Kings present an overarching view of Judah and Israel as kingdoms both in their glory and their degradation. By examining these books and presenting thorough exegesis within preachable units of text, Schreiner and Compson guide preachers and teachers in articulating biblical--and therefore eminently meaningful--applications for Christians.
