This week the teachers ‘wrap up’ the Book of First Kings, and continue into the sequential Book (not really divided anyway in Hebrew versions) of II Kings, where, among other things, we see a bit more of the prophet EliYahu, or Elijah.

And as Rob Miller summarizes the “end of the FIRST part of the continuing story,” the Book ends with the divided kingdom of Israel having gone completely ‘over to the dark side.’

Somehow, it speaks volumes.
