I & 2 KINGS – CHRONICLES HARMONY- LESSON TWELVE


2 KINGS INTRODUCTION: Picking up where I Kings ends, 2 Kings leads us into approximately 270 years of Old Testament history (853 – 582 B.C.).  Both kingdoms comprising all of Israel will be taken away in captivity.  Israel falls to Assyria in 722 B.C., and 135 years later, Judah will be taken away into Babylonian captivity (587-586 B.C.).  2 Kings chronicles the reigns of the last 11 kings of Israel, and the last 16 kings of Judah.  Counting Jehoshaphat, seven of the last sixteen kings of Judah did what was right in the sight of Jehovah – Joash, Amaziah, Uzziah, Jotham, Hezekiah and Josiah (2 Kings 12:2, 14:3, 15:3, 15:34, 18:3, 22:2).  Sadly, all eleven kings of the northern kingdom Israel did evil in the sigh of Jehovah. We will continue to in 2 Chronicles as a harmony study of these times.
