Through-the-Bible Thursday: 2 Kings

Through-the-Bible Thursday: 2 KINGS (4 mins) — Here is Part Two of the Book of Kings (called 2 Kings). Sadly, the story gets darker and darker until the chastening hand of God allows both the northern and southern kingdoms to be carried away into captivity. First goes the northern, then about 135 years later, the southern. The lessons contained here are powerful and practical. Yes, sin has real consequences. But whom the Lord loves, He disciplines. In this book, God had sent prophet after prophet to draw His people back to Him. May we heed the lessons found here and respond positively to God’s grace, His warnings and His discipline when needed.
