The Man Who Would Be King

February 3, 2019 Preacher: Rich Lanning Series: 1 & 2 Kings

Scripture: 1 Kings 1:1–1:10

The Man Who Would Be King

1 Kings 1:1-10

February 3, 2019


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?
