41 5. During Solomon’s reign, Israel attained its largest size eve r much larger than present day Israel. Solomon not only solidified but also expanded the gains made by David (4:24; see exposition on 2 Sam. 8:1-18). 6. It describes the ministry of Elijah, whom many believe was the most colorful Old Testament prophet (17:1). 7. It marks the only instance when God used the animal world to feed His servant (17:4-6). 8. It was also the only Old Testament occasion when God pronounced the death penalty upon a man and his wife (21:19, 23). 9. In fact, this wife was the first of scripture’s most bloody and brutal women! These are: Jezebel (1 Kings 21) Athaliah (2 Kings 11) Herodias (Mt. 14) 10. In the book we see how a random arrow was used by God to accomplish His will (22:34) 11. Finally, Elijah’s contest on Mount Carmel marks the second of scripture’s two greatest demonstrations showing the power of the true God as opposed to that of the false gods (1 Kings 18). The ten plagues in Moses’ day were history’s first such demonstration (see Ex. 7-12). COMPARISON WITH OTHER BIBLE BOOKS Ezekiel: 1 Kings describes for us the Solomonic Temple (7), while Ezekiel does the same in regards to the Millennial Temple. Revelation: In 1 Kings 12 we find described the disuniting of Israel’s twelve tribes. In Revelation 7 we find descr ibed the future uniting of Israel’s twelve tribes. TITLES FOR AND TYPES OF JESUS 1.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
