1 Kings recounts what happens to David's kingdom following his death, dealing with why Judah came into the sorry state that led, eventually, to exile - with its glorious temple in ruins and its citizens once more subject to a foreign king. This is no more than the people and their kings deserve, according to the theology outlined in the Pentateuch, particularly the book of Deuteronomy. Is there hope in the midst of God's judgement on His people?
In this commentary, Dr Davies shows the faithfulness of God, despite the people's unfaithfulness, as a theme that runs throughout the book of Kings. God's power and grace are shown to His covenant people.
