- Bible Division
- One Kingdom, then Israel is Divided
- Pickup up where 2 Samuel left off, 1 Kings follows David's son, Solomon and his rise to kingship. The First Temple is built in worship to God, but the lusts of the world eventually led to a divided kingdom. A series of evil kings rule over both the land of Judah and Israel as the Jews, as a whole, stray away from God.
