Kings Of Old Testament

The main point of this blog is to show the importance of the Kings of Old Testament, specifically in the life and doctrine of Jesus Christ. The second purpose of this blog is to show how God was revealed in a variety of ways throughout the Old Testament. The last purpose is to show how Jesus Christ was foretold by many different prophets even before he came. Why is there an Old Testament? What is the King James Bible?

The King in the Old Testament is the Lord God Himself. He is the King and Lord of all Creation, who created everything that exists. The Bible reveals God to be a transcendent yet personal Being — One who is above all and yet necessary for His creation to exist, live, and thrive; One who will provide justice for all His creatures no matter how evil human beings may act towards Him or each other.

King In Old Testament


There were many kings in the history of the Old Testament, but who was the best? Here are my top five picks:

What is the King James Bible?

The King James Bible is an English translation of the Christian Bible for the Church of England, commissioned in 1604 and completed in 1611. The King James Bible has been influential in the shaping of the English language, especially in its development of a standardised form of written English. It was also influential in the way that it was read aloud, with many people memorising large sections of it.

Why is there an Old Testament?

The Old Testament is a record of God’s dealings with His people, the nation of Israel. It shows how God revealed Himself to them, and how they responded to Him. The Old Testament also contains many prophecies that were fulfilled in the New Testament.

Why is there an Old Testament? Because it is a record of God’s dealings with His people, the nation of Israel. It shows how God revealed Himself to them, and how they responded to Him. The Old Testament also contains many prophecies that were fulfilled in the New Testament.


The first king of a united kingdom of Israel was Saul, who was the son of Kish, a Benjamite. He was tall and good looking, and he also had a reputation for being a mighty warrior.

But Saul’s reign didn’t last long because he made several mistakes that cost him his throne. First off, he disobeyed God by failing to destroy all the animals from the Amalekites’ herds when God told him to do so in 1 Samuel 15:1-3 (NIV). Secondly, he refused to listen when Samuel warned him not to allow an evil spirit from an evil medium possess his son Jonathan in 1 Samuel 28:3 (NIV) Finally, during battle against Amalekites and Philistines at Mt Gilboa when faced with certain death by his own hand or having his head cut off by Philistines if he did not die by himself; instead of killing himself as instructed by God through Samuel earlier on during their last meeting together before parting ways until their next meeting at Ramah where they would be reunited once again after Samuel dies


David, the second king of Israel, was a great leader. He was also a musician, poet and warrior. King David is an example of everything that makes a good king: he fought for his people but also helped them start their lives over again; he showed kindness to everyone around him and led by example instead of ordering people around; he cared about every person in his kingdom—even if they weren’t related to him—and loved them like family members would love each other.

David is also a good example for fathers today because he showed how much he loved his children even when they made mistakes or disobeyed him (1 Samuel 15:11-12). Even though it was hard sometimes to punish them after they disobeyed him (as parents sometimes experience), David still did what needed to be done so that his family could thrive together as one unit rather than falling apart due to bad influences outside their home


Solomon was the fourth king of Israel and the second king of the United Kingdom of Israel and Judah. He was born in Jerusalem, the capital of Israel. He was the son of King David and Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam. Solomon’s reign began in 970 BCE and ended in 931 BCE after his death at age 50.


Rehoboam was the son of King Saul and grandson of King David.

He was the first king of the united kingdom, which is why he’s important in Israel’s history.

However, Rehoboam wasn’t very good at being king. He didn’t have his grandfather’s wisdom or kindness; instead, he became arrogant and selfish because he thought all his subjects would love him just because he was their leader (which isn’t true).

As a result, many people rebelled against him—even one of his own sons!


Abijah was the son of Rehoboam and Maacah, the daughter of Absalom. Abijah was the second king of the United Monarchy of Israel.

Abijah inherited a divided kingdom from his father, Rehoboam (1 Kings 12:16) at age 16 months after Rehoboam’s death on November 14th, 926 BCE. The division between Judah and Israel led to a civil war between Abijah and Jeroboam II (1 Kings 14:15-16).

During his reign there was an invasion by Shishak I of Egypt who conquered Jerusalem along with all its wealth (1 Kings 14:25). However, many scholars believe that this invasion occurred during Asa’s reign instead since Shishak had already invaded Jehoahaz’ reign according to 2 Chronicles 12:2-24).


Asa was a good king. He followed the Lord and was a good leader, but he was also a good man and a good example for those who would follow him. Asa did what he needed to do to keep his kingdom from falling apart during his reign, but he also did it with integrity and honesty.


Jehoshaphat was the king of Judah. He reigned for 25 years. He did not follow God’s law and worshipped idols. Jehoshaphat was not a good king, leader or man.


Jehoram also known as Joram (reigned 851-842 BC) was King of Israel. He was the son of Ahab, king of Israel, and Jezebel. His father made a covenant with the Lord; however, he did not keep it. Jehoram continued to serve Baal and Asherah even after his father’s death and the time when his mother Queen Jezebel died. He became king at age 32 years old when his father died after reigning for 12 years in Samaria (2 Kings 3:4).

Jehoram was an evil king who killed many prophets of God including Elijah (1 Kings 18:4). The prophet Elisha told his servant Gehazi that someone would kill him because he had spat in front of him (2 Kings 2:9-10). Gehazi found out that it was Ahaziah who had done this so he went out to meet him along with Jehoram while they were hunting together in Beth Shemesh Valley near Mount Gilboa where a battle broke out between them killing many people on both sides including Ahaziah himself who perished from being struck by an arrow shot by one of his own soldiers (2 Kings 9:24-27).

Ahaziah of Judah

Ahaziah was the son of Athaliah, who was the daughter of Omri. That means that Ahaziah was the grandson of Omri and great-grandson of David.

It’s important to note that Ahaziah’s reign as King over Judah lasted only one year. This happened because his mother committed treason against him and sought to kill him (2 Chronicles 22:7). According to 2 Kings 8:26-27, she sent assassins after her son with orders to destroy him and make sure he never took power over Israel again!


Athaliah was the daughter of Ahab and Jezebel, who were wicked kings. Athaliah was married to Joram, the son of Jehoshaphat. After her husband died, she became queen of Judah for six years (841-835 B.C.). She was a very wicked queen because she murdered all the heirs to the throne so that she could keep power for herself.


  • You are the king of Judah.
  • Your name is Joash.
  • You are the son of Amaziah and grandson of Uzziah, who was a good king. His name means “strength of Yahweh” (2 Kings 14:26).
  • And you have been a good king too! You were merciful to your subjects because you were merciful to God, as he showed mercy to you after your father’s death and gave him another chance to rule over Judah (2 Kings 12:1-3).

Amaziah of Judah

Amaziah was a good king because he was a good warrior.

Amaziah was a good king because he was a good leader.

Amaziah was a good king because he was a good example to others.

Sa;u, David, Solomon and Asa were the best kings

The first king of Israel was Saul, who was chosen by God to lead His people. He was a good king and did many good things for Israel, but he made one mistake: he disobeyed God by not killing all the Amalekites when God told him to do so (1 Samuel 15).

David was the second king of Israel; he succeeded Saul after defeating Goliath in battle. David is remembered as a great warrior, musician and poet whose love for God propelled him throughout his life. Solomon was chosen by Nathan to succeed David because he showed wisdom beyond his years during their conversation when discussing how best to build a temple for God’s glory (2 Samuel 2).


In conclusion, we can see that the kings in our top ten list were all well liked by God. They were called to rule over Israel at a time when it was under threat and they were able to keep God’s people safe. The best king of all was definitely David because he loved God so much and did everything in his power to show it.
