CBS – III.7 – Solomon, the Divided Kingdom, Elijah – 1 Kings 8-12, etc

The texts here are: 1 Kings 8-12, 17-21; 2 Kings 1-2.

CBS – 1 Kings 8 to 2 Kings 2

These texts tell the story of Solomon’s wealth and wisdom, but also his foolishness in adopting the pagan worship of some of his foreign wives. We hear of the Dedication of the Temple (ch. 8), Solomon’s death and the succession of his son Rehoboam (ch. 11), the division of the kingdom into Israel and Judah (ch. 11), several more kings, most of whom are bad, the career of the prophet Elijah (1 k 17 to 2 K 2).
