Our Thursday Bible Study this winter is focussing on the books of Kings.

Books of Kings. Books of Kings, two books of the Hebrew Bible or the Protestant Old Testament that, together with Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, and 1 and 2 Samuel, belong to the group of historical books (Deuteronomic history) written during the Babylonian Exile (c. 550 bc) of the Jews.

Message from Wayne: 

Dear Friends:

We continue our study of the I Kings series, (session two).

Please read I Kings 5:15 - I Kings 10:29 (five 1/2 chapters)
Solomon the Builder, Solomon the Trader

In these chapters we discover more about the gifts and skills of
this king, unlike any other in the history of the united Kingdom
of Israel.

For more good material, read (DK) "Solomon and the Temple"
pp 132-133 where we learn a lot about this marvel building
in the history of the ancient monarchy.

I assume you have already read "King Solomon" DK pp. 130-131.

While Solomon is given a lot of attention in Kings, it is interesting that
he is never mentioned in documents as yet found outside of Israel.
This raises the question - "What is his true story?" as we realize
we are not reading history as we are used to reading history.

See you Thursday!
