The book of 2 Kings is the tale of two kingdoms—Israel and Judah—and also the story of a prophet greater than Elijah, Elisha son of Shaphat. Although the book’s overarching narrative is one of tragic decline leading to exile, hope remains as God again and again fulfills his promise to never to let go of the line of David.

In this Reformed Expository Commentary, Philip Graham Ryken traces the overarching narrative of 2 Kings, connects it to Christ, and explores its applications for ordinary Christians in today’s world. This historical book has everyday relevance as it shows God’s concern for people in serious need as well as the near- and long-term consequences of idolatry. Most important, it prepares us to see our need for the true and greatest Prophet and King.
