Israel’s Kings Question by Heather

This is a worksheet that I am going to use when I teach some information on the various kings of Israel. I don’t know if it will line up properly if you print it out. But the gist of the study is that as a group I am going to assign each person during the Bible study one of the kings to look at and determine if they were G (good) or B (bad) did evil in the Lord’s eyes, and why. Mostly the reason they did wrong was idol worship, but there are other reasons. There is something very interesting in this, for a pattern forms. You will see. And then we will share that during the study. Then I will take one good and one bad king and do a detailed study on them, and also show the people how when you compare Chronicles to Kings there is more information given – sort of a God’s eye view in Chronicles.

My question is, I used Kay Arthur’s list of kings for the dates of the kings’ reigns, but there are many other dates given – it seems that it is not exact about the dates, so the dates here are approximate. I have to figure out why some have an overlap. Any idea where to get the most accurate dates?

When reading 1 and 2 Kings I kept getting confused as to which king was which – so by breaking it apart this way, it makes it a bit more easy to understand. I will also have another worksheet, which I am working on now that details a few salient points about each king and which prophets were speaking at the time of the various kings. That is taking a bit longer.

Hope this is helpful for you.


Read the passages involving the king and deterimine for yourself if the king is Good or Bad. Circle the answer. God tells us about his assessment of the king in the scripture.

About Heather Marsten

Welcome to Heather's Blog. I'm looking forward to meeting you and checking out your sites. I just moved about nine years of material over from another blog site, Xanga, who may close down mid-July. At first I was disappointed to make the move because I had a lifetime membership at Xanga and had to spend weeks transferring posts. But now I'm thrilled. Already I've met new bloggers and read many new websites. Blogging is a wonderful way to expand my horizons and garner new ideas. I'm a happily married mom of three young adults. My husband and I are proud to watch our children grow and venture out into the world. My daughter is still in college but my two sons have graduated. One has a job and the other just graduated and is in the process of finding a job in his field, physics. Anyone know of any jobs out there? I'm proud of our children and love watching them grow and mature. They've become fine, compassionate, and loving people. Empty nest? Nah, I'm too busy to let an empty nest bother me. Not enough hours in the day. My husband and I enjoy quiet time together and I have many interests to pursue - one of which is blogging :D I am a born-again believer and love God. As you read this blog, you will discover that Bible studies thrill me. There is so much wisdom contained between the covers of the Bible and I am fortunate to sit under the teachings of a remarkable pastor, Pastor Don Moore. Members of our church (Living Word Chapel in West Hurley, New York) are encouraged to teach and there are visiting pastors who stop by our church, I also study the Bible on my own and love sharing what I learn. One other passion is writing. My current work in process is a memoir. A scene from my memoir was published in a book called: Heavenly Company: Entertaining Angels Unaware - an anthology of angelic encounters compiled by Cecil Murphy. I'm hoping my memoir will encourage other survivors of abuse. I grew up in a home filled with abuse, including incest. For most of my life I was searching for something that would fill the void of not being loved by my parents. I tried many ways to find that love -- therapy, relationships, occult studies, and keeping my life so filled I had no way to think about my past. It was only when I discovered God that I was able to put the pieces of my life back together and walk forward in a joyous life. My nickname - wondering has changed from wondering where the heck God was in my life, to wondering what incredible adventure is going to happen next. I hope you enjoy my site. Please say hi, share some thoughts, and ask questions. I look forward to meeting you and checking out your sites. Have a blessed day. Heather
