The books of 1 Kings and 2 Kings take us into the period of monarchy in ancient Israel, detailing a clear contrast the God who keeps the covenant, and the people of Israel, known for breaking covenants. This study guide will help readers see God's mercy and grace as he brings blessings instead of curses to His people in response to their disobedience, setting the stage for the coming Redeemer.
The Knowing the Bible series is a resource designed to help Bible readers better understand and apply God’s Word. These 12-week studies guide participants through books of the Bible and are made up of four basic components: 
(1) reflection questions help readers engage the text at a deeper level; 
(2) “Gospel Glimpses” highlight the gospel of grace throughout the book; 
(3) “Whole-Bible Connections” show how any given passage connects to the Bible’s overarching story of redemption, culminating in Christ; 
(4) “Theological Soundings” identify how historic orthodox doctrines are taught or reinforced throughout Scripture.
With contributions from an assortment of influential pastors and church leaders, these gospel-centered studies will help Christians see and cherish the message of God’s grace on every page of the Bible.
