We are moving along in the Books of Kings. Like the Books of Samuel, 1 and 2 Kings were actually considered one book at one time. It’s just sort of hard keeping scrolls that large :-). More expedient to divide it up. This week, we will skip over the visit of the Queen of Sheba in chapter 10 to read about Solomon’s greatest sins. Then, we will move through the division of the kingdom, and Elijah defeating the prophets of Baal. We will be in the 2nd book of Kings by weeks end. Hope you are learning as much as I am in this “big picture” study of God’s word.
Each weekend, I am now posting a small PDF of one week of chapter summaries (on the website’s “Summaries” page), current to the beginning of the previous week. I have posted the summary for Week 22 (May Week 4) of the schedule I am following. This short PDF document contains condensed comments about 2 Samuel 15, 16, 17, 18, and 19, with hyperlinks to the ESV version of each chapter for listening or reading, and joins the summaries for other weeks already posted there.

Please note: I did not design the reading plan that I am following in my blog. All of my comments in this blog, however, are solely my responsibility. When reading ANY commentary, you should ALWAYS refer first to the scripture, which is God’s unchanging and unfailing word. Reading schedules, as well as a link to the site where you can get the reading plan that I’m currently following for yourself can be found on the “Bible Reading Schedules” page of my website at http://graceofourlord.com.
