About Volume 4
Volume 4 of the SDAIBC reveals how God interacted with His covenant people in the histories of Israel and Judah, their leaders, King David’s dynasty, and the construction of the first temple.
1 Kings “First Kings shows the interplay of human actions, and divine providence as a loving God fulfills His promises and calls apostate kings and people back to a covenant relationship. This book also shows that God always remains faithful to His word, bringing it to fulfillment, whether for judgment or salvation.”—Elias Brasil de Souza
2 Kings “The book of 2 Kings begins shortly before the end of Elijah’s ministry and takes the reader to the Babylonian exile. When the book was completed, both Israel and Judah had gone into captivity; Jerusalem lay in ruins. The book provides not just a history of Israel and Judah but an explanation of how and why their national catastrophe occurred, highlighting the conditional nature of God’s promises. Hence, the book encourages God’s people in exile to remain faithful to their God—a lesson that is still applicable today.”—Tarsee Li
1 Chronicles “First Chronicles presents a genealogy followed by King David’s dynasty and ends with preparation to build the temple. Genealogies are not a list of perfect people. David, with God’s help, establishes his dynasty and, despite the challenges, emerges as the second Moses, preparing the temple materials. The lesson is that when we are in a covenantal relationship with God, things run according to His will.”—Joaquim Azevedo Neto
2 Chronicles “Second Chronicles shows how God deals with His people, especially with their rulers. It tells the stories of King Solomon of the united kingdom and twenty kings of the Southern Kingdom. It begins with Solomon’s construction and dedication of Yahweh’s temple (chs. 2–7), the climax of Chronicles, and ends with the hope of restoration after the temple’s destruction (ch. 36). In spite of the evils and failures of the kings; God is still leading His people, according to His own plan for them.”—Daegeuk Nam and KyeSang Ha
