Legend: B.C. dates at top of timeline are approximate. Note that 931BC marks the division of the Kingdom into Southern Tribes (Judah and Benjamin) and Ten Northern Tribes. To avoid confusion be aware that after the division of the Kingdom in 931BC, the Southern Kingdom is most often designated in Scripture as "Judah" and the Northern Kingdom as "Israel." Finally, note that 1Chronicles 1-9 is not identified on the timeline because these chapters are records of genealogy.

Related Resource: Old Testament Timeline - Interesting!

1 Chronicles covers the same period of time as 2 Samuel and both describe the reign of David (See the Timeline above) whereas 2 Chronicles  covers the same period of time as 1 Kings and 2 Kings and both describe the time from Solomon to the Babylonian Captivity. In Chronicles the kings of Israel (See table below where Jeroboam I identifies first of the kings of the 10 Northern tribes) are not mentioned unless they do something that relates to the kings of Judah. Note that the word "chronicle" means "a continuous and detailed account of historical events arranged in order of time." In First and Second Chronicles God has given us a very accurate history so that we can know all that He wants us to know about the period of the kings.

Keil and Delitzsch
Commentary
1 Kings

James Rosscup - "Keil, C. F. and Franz Delitzsch. Commentary on the Old Testament. 25 volumes. Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1950. This is the best older, overall treatment of a critical nature on the Old Testament Hebrew text verse by verse and is a good standard work to buy. The student can buy parts or the whole of this series. Sometimes it is evangelical, at other times liberal ideas enter."

John Kitto
Commentary
on 1 Kings
Pictorial Bible

Spurgeon's Comments on Kitto: "Then, of course, gentlemen, you will economize rigidly until you have accumulated funds to purchase Kitto’s Pictorial Bible. You mean to take that goodly freight on board before you launch upon the sea of married life. As you cannot visit the Holy Land, it is well for you that there is a work like the Pictorial Bible, in which the notes of the most observant travellers are arranged under the texts which they illustrate. For the geography, zoology, botany, and manners and customs of Palestine, this will be your counselor and guide....A work of art as well as learning."

1 Kings

Spurgeon comments-"Should always be consulted...Exceeding meritorious. Refer to it frequently....They are not exactly a commentary, but what marvelous expositions you have there! You have reading more interesting than any novel that was ever written, and as instructive as the heaviest theology. The matter is quite attractive and fascinating, and yet so weighty, that the man who shall study these volumes thoroughly, will not fail to read his Bible intelligently and with growing interest."

Lange's Commentary
1 Kings

Spurgeon has high praise - "It must have cost great effort to make the homiletical part of this volume as good as it is. It is a treasury to the preacher, and is all the more precious because we have next to nothing upon the books of the Kings."

Conservative, Evangelical

SEARCH MORE THAN 30 CONSERVATIVE THEOLOGICAL JOURNALS (and literally 1000's of journal articles) - Annual $50 fee (click here) required to view the entire article but allows access to literally thousands of conservative articles! This resource is potentially incredibly useful for in depth study.
 

SEARCH TIPS:

<> Exact phrase search: Place double quotes around phrase to search for exact phrase. Note that search uses the stem of words in search box & searches for all forms (eg, "God's love" finds phrases with God, God's, godly.... love, loving, loves).

<> Search Limits: You can also use AND or NOT (Note: these limiting words MUST be in all caps). Eg, "remember me" retrieves about 60 hits. "remember me" AND Nehemiah retrieves 6 hits but they are related to Nehemiah (See Neh 5:19, 13:14, 22, 31)
<> Proximity search. Eg, "Old Testament spirit"~10 = finds those 3 words within 10 words of each other. If that finds nothing, change to ~20 or ~30. That should help you look for some topic like "Ministry of the Holy Spirit in the OT"
<> Verse search: If you are looking for a specific verse, place the query in quotes (eg, "John 3:16").

 DISCLAIMER: Before you "go to the commentaries" go to the Scriptures and study them inductively (Click 3 part overview of how to do Inductive Bible Study) in dependence on your Teacher, the Holy Spirit, Who Jesus promised would guide us into all the truth (John 16:13). Remember that Scripture is always the best commentary on Scripture. Any commentary, even those by the most conservative and orthodox teacher/preachers cannot help but have at least some bias of the expositor based upon his training and experience. Therefore the inclusion of specific links does not indicate that we agree with every comment. We have made a sincere effort to select only the most conservative, "bibliocentric" commentaries. Should you discover some commentary or sermon you feel may not be orthodox, please email your concern. I have removed several links in response to concerns by discerning readers. I recommend that your priority be a steady intake of solid Biblical food so that with practice you will have your spiritual senses trained to discern good from evil (see note Hebrews 5:14).
