King James Bible

1 Kings

The identity of the author of Kings is unknown, although Jewish tradition holds that its author was Jeremiah. The books of Kings were originally contained within one volume of Hebrew text. The two books contain an account of Israel's kings, priests and prophets, and the spiritual activities of God's covenant people, with the historical accuracy confirmed repeatedly. The books of Kings should not be read for just it's historical content, but as a focus and record of God's reward for obedience and faithfulness, and His Judgment of disobedience, as His people vacillated between His Will and their natures.
