Abstract:

The Book of 1 Kings is a portion of the true history of Israel's monarchy composed for the sake of theology. The focus on the kingship is supplemented by mention of prophets who interacted with the monarchs, but the main subject of this elegant literature is God. This history presents God--the holy, righteous, just, merciful, compassionate, gracious, omnipotent, and omniscient Deity--in relationship with Israel, from the tenth to the sixth centuries BC, anticipating the Son of David and Solomon, Jesus Christ. This record of Israel's kingship always returns to the basis of that history--that God's people depend on Him for life and salvation --
