1 Kings 1 - 2

1 Kings
1 KingsSteve Gregg

In this talk, Steve Gregg discusses the events narrated in 1 Kings 1-2, which portray the complex power struggles that occurred within King David's family after his death. Adonijah, David's son, felt entitled to the throne and organized a ceremony to declare himself king. However, Nathan and Bathsheba alerted David, who appointed Solomon as his successor instead. Adonijah's rebellion failed, and he was later pardoned by Solomon, who also removed Abiathar from the priesthood and ordered the execution of Joab for his past transgressions. Gregg provides insightful commentary on the significance of these events and their implications for David's legacy and the future of Israel.
