Logos Bible Study presents another masterful presentation by Dr. Bill Creasy of how a divided kingdom will surely fall. From Solomon's reign to the prophetic call of Elijah, 1 Kings tells the story of the collapse of David's united monarchy into a nearly 100-year civil war and the fracture of a nation into two kingdoms: Israel and Judah. 2 Kings continues the story, chronicling Assyria's conquest of Israel in 721 BC and Babylon's conquest of Judah in 586 BC, ending with all Israel taken captive to Babylon.
1 & 2 Kings tells the story of Israel and Judah from man's perspective, while 1 & 2 Chronicles tells the story from God's perspective. Functioning as a recapitulation, 1 & 2 Chronicles focuses on the history of Judah, Israel's southern kingdom, and the house of David.
Listening to biblical scholar Dr. Bill Creasy is a pure delight, as he guides us across the landscape of a broken nation ruled by evil kings, the prophets who confront them, and the idolatrous worshippers who turn their backs on God. He brings enthusiasm and humor to the stories, as well as a keen literary and analytical sense. A natural performer, Dr. Creasy keeps his lectures improvisational and fun. Studying the Bible with this great teacher is a wonderful experience!
