1 Kings

In the Christian Bible, the two Books of Kings (commonly referred to as 1 Kings and 2 Kings, or First Kings and Second Kings) conclude a series of books often referred to as the Deuteronomistic history, running from Joshua through Judges, Samuel and Kings, but not Chronicles, which many scholars believe was written to provide a theological explanation for the destruction of the Kingdom of Judah by Babylon in c. 586 BCE and a foundation for a return from exile.
