Product Description

In this commentary, Iain Provan treats 1 and 2 Kings as a unified whole nestled within its canonical context. Kings constantly presupposes knowledge of the remainder of the story of Israel and invites reflection upon itself in the light of the prophetic writings and of the New Testament. It is examined here as narrative literature with historiographical intent, designed to teach its readers about God and the Ways of God. Provan draws the reader's attention to themes that are repeated in Kings, such as the theme of God's promise and how it is fulfilled among God's people. Based on the NIV.
