Though the Book of Kings Sefer Melachim () is divided into two parts, Jewish tradition considers it a single book of 47 chapters. As we study these chapters, we experience both the highest points of the history of the children of Israel, and the lowest. Despite the tragic ending, the high points of the book allow us to maintain hope for future.
The book charts the 400 hundred years from the building to the destruction of the First Temple. It includes the successes and tragedies of the Jewish kings, plus the great prophets Elijah, Elisha, and Obadiah.
But the Book of Kings is NOT a history book. It was written by the prophet Jeremiah and contains profound moral and spiritual lessons for all generations.
If you want to fully immerse yourself in Biblical Israel and grow spiritually, this is the Bible book to read.
