Even King Ahab deserved mercy, according to the Lord. I’m not so sure my heart would have felt the same way. Verse 25 says that “no one else so completely sold himself to what was evil in the Lord’s sight as Ahab did under the influence of his wife Jezebel.” The latter part of that… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | 1 Kings 21

The treaty between Ahab and Ben-hadad I saw as good, but God saw it as very bad, bad enough to provoke Ahab’s death and the death of more Israelites. I thought Ahab was kind of turning a corner, didn’t you? He listened to God’s instructions through two huge battles, which he won, and then he… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | 1 Kings 20

Have you ever felt like Elijah? “I have had enough, Lord,” he said. I have felt like this a few times in my life. I’ve even prayed for death. But like Elijah, the Lord did not leave me, and in many ways, on many occasions, He said to me, “Get up and eat some more,… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | 1 Kings 19

The introduction of Elijah in the last chapter opened our eyes to see how much the Lord favored him. This chapter points out that Elijah is the last of his kind - one man. And God again used one man to prove to all of Israel that He is Lord. If you’ve studied the Bible… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | 1 Kings 18

Enter Elijah, whom many of us have studied in Sunday school and referenced when referring to God’s great miracles. In this short chapter alone, we see at least three miracles. First, God feeds Elijah through ravens during a time of great drought and famine in Israel. Then He supplies the widow with bread and oil… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | 1 Kings 17

As confusing as all these kings and the years they reigned may be, we at least can see that what is being called the kingdom of Israel is in dire need of a good king. This chapter focuses solely on the kings of Israel. Meanwhile, King Asa was ruling over Judah, and according to the… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | 1 Kings 16

These chapters get a little hard to follow, and keeping up with the timeline through 1 Kings is nearly impossible. It might help to draw a picture of the kings that ruled in Jerusalem and Judah during this time. (I don’t mean draw portraits or stick arts of each king. I mean a timeline-like picture.)… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | 1 Kings 15

The Book of 1 Kings flows fast, and as you can see, we get only a glimpse of each king, their reigns and what happened during their times as rulers. I think when we finish this book, we will have a sense of a whirlwind having gone through the Promised Land. This chapter covers at… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | 1 Kings 14

Sometimes God throws us a loop. This chapter surely is one of those. It’s a good testament that we should listen to what God tells us instead of trusting people, even when they seem right and good. The man of God was doing well obeying God’s commands until he met the old prophet, whom the… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | 1 Kings 13

Do you ever get the feeling that the Kingdom of David will never learn? It’s obvious, and this chapter paints yet another picture of how stubborn we as a people have always been. We even see something from Solomon’s reign that was never pointed out before: he was a harsh ruler. We knew he had… Continue reading Bible studies for writers | 1 Kings 12
