2 Kings 1 - 2

2 Kings
2 KingsSteve Gregg

In this continuation of the first book of Kings, the death of Ahab resulted in his son Eheziah becoming king. It is speculated that during the 50 years in which Moab served Israel, they took advantage of the power vacuum caused by Ahab's death to rebel and assert their independence by refusing to pay tribute. Despite the miracles of Elijah, it appears that some people continued to worship pagan gods, choosing sensuality, cruelty, and selfishness over holiness. Alongside an analysis of the text, the speaker includes thought-provoking comments on the relevance of faith and divine intervention in contemporary society.
