In this two-part episode of Help Me Teach the Bible, I talk to Gary Millar, principal of Queensland Theological College in Brisbane, Australia, and author of Saving Eutychus. Millar is currently working on a commentary on 1 and 2 Kings, which will be published by Crossway. The Book of 1 Kings opens with a weakened King David who can’t seem to keep warm in bed, and subsequently works its way through:

  • the glorious and yet ultimately failed kingship of Solomon
  • the building and dedication of the temple
  • the division of the kingdom with its good and bad kings
  • the prophetic ministry of Elijah

Here are some additional audio resources you may find helpful in preparing to teach 1 Kings:
