2 Samuel - Explained and Applied 10
The history of David which began in 1 Samuel continues in this book. Yet it is also a new beginning. The first book ended with the death of Saul, the king after the heart of man. This book is about David. It is also about him from chapter 16 of the first book. There he becomes the rejected king. Now it is about him as the crowned king.
Another aspect of David is also discussed at length in this book, and that is David as a father. Its description contains many lessons for fathers and parents.

1 Kings - Explained and Applied 11
The books 1 and 2 Kings are one book in the Hebrew Old Testament. In 1 Kings (and also in 2 Kings) we see kingship as entrusted to man and through which he is put to the test. We see how the king and with him the people depart further and further from God.
We also see that God sends prophets to make His people return to Him. In 1 Kings this is especially Elijah. The performance of this man of God is impressive. Elijah is an example of how each of us can be a man of God in a time of decline, in which we also live.

2 Kings - Explained and Applied 12
In 2 Kings we see the development of the history of God's people that began in 1 Kings. We see the decline of king and people in an increasing degree. Again, we see that God sends a prophet. That prophet is Elisha, the successor of Elijah.
The beginning of 2 Kings is primarily an account of the grace of God through Elisha to an apostate nation. Despite that grace, the people slip away from God completely. Consequently, the book ends with the carrying away of the ten tribes by the king of Assyria and the two tribes by the king of Babylon.

Openbaring 19:10 / HB /

Na enkele inleidende hoofdstukken over het belang van het geschreven Woord van God en de verbanden tussen het Oude en het Nieuwe Testament, volgen in deze bundel een reeks overdenkingen over belangrijke thema's in de evangeliën en de brieven van het Nieuwe Testament, alsook in het boek Openbaring. Het is steeds mijn bedoeling om hierbij Christus Zelf centraal te stellen.
