1 Kings (Part IV)  Alive!

The Spring 2020 quarter will feature 1 Kings  (Part IV).  This class will study 1 Kings 12:33-21:20a in the sixth book of the Old Testament Books of History.

We continue our interactive study of the Old Testament Books of History in the sixth of these books (1 Kings 12:33–21:20a), beginning with the evil reign of Jeroboam I. Then, we see the somewhat evil reign of Rehoboam in Judah. Next, we have the reign of Abijah, Rehoboam’s son, in Judah. Then, the successor of Abijah, godly Asa, his son, destroyed idol worship and enforced the observance of true religion. Next is the short-lived reign of Jeroboam’s son, Nadab, then Baasha, a usurper (who assasinated Nadab and all his sons and male relatives), then Elah, Zimri (who committed suicide), Omri, Tibni (both Omri and Tibni ruled at the same time, each having half the people supporting each king, and a civil war occurred because of the dispute.) Eventually Omri became king of Israel after Tibni died, followed by Ahab, Omri’s son. During Asa’s lengthy reign, Jeroboam through Omri served in the Northern Kingdom, and Ahab’s reign ensued. Ahab clashed with God’s prophet Elijah at the end of our quarter.

 This class shows us important attributes of God. It will help us as Christians to grow spiritually as we learn more about our Creator and ourselves and applies many Bible principles to our lives today. If you want to be discipled, this class will do that. The first class is Monday, April 6, and continues for eight Mondays at 7:15pm – 8:45pm.

If you would like to take the class in Room 500 Mondays at 7:15 starting April 6 - May 25, 2020,  please visit the Welcome Center and sign up there. You may also email Dr. Lon.
