Scripture: 1 Kings 1:1–1:10

The Man Who Would Be King

1 Kings 1:1-10

February 3, 2019

Introduction:

I.   Author, dates and genre.

 

II.  An old, weary, and weak king. 1 Kings 1:1-46.

 

III. Adonijah poses a greave threat to the kingdom. 1 Kings 1:5-10.

 

IV.  Why does God allow His kingdom to be brought to the brink?

 

Questions for reflection:

  • Why do you think here and in previous instances, the weaknesses of King David are highlighted by Scripture?

  • In what ways does the author indicate Adonijah will prove to be a disaster should he succeed in his attempt to become king?

  • Why do you think God allows His kingdom to be brought to the brink of defeat over and over? What does He want us to learn?
