Why did Israel, the people of God, desire a human king? Why did God grant that desire? This course answers these and other important questions raised in Israel’s united monarchy as recorded in I and II Samuel and I Kings 1–11. Special emphasis is placed on archaeology, history, and theology. The course also considers parallel passages found in Chronicles and Psalms and focuses on Iron Age discoveries in Palestine as they relate to the biblical text. Davis examines the successes and failures of Saul, David, and Solomon and gleans practical truths from their lives.
