sermon series on the kings of Israel

This free 3-part sermon series on the kings of Israel will help your students learn about the lives of Saul, David, and Solomon while identifying helpful life lessons from their successes and failures.

Part 1: King Saul

The Old Testament books of Samuel, Kings, and Chronicles tell the story of Israel’s early history and the reign of its first kings: Saul, David, and Solomon. Our journey begins with the prophet and judge Samuel, who listened to the voice of God’s people and helped them select their first king. His name was Saul. However, Saul’s reign was marked by failure, and his demise serves as a warning to us. As we explore his reign and failure, we will uncover two key warning signs to be aware of: selfishness and disobedience to God.

Scripture: 1 Samuel 8:4-5; 1 Samuel 9:2; 1 Samuel 15:19-26

Part 2: King David

King David is among of the most well-known figures in the Old Testament, and his story is full of powerful lessons about how God fulfills His mission using unlikely methods. His life and legacy was marked with countless bullies and adversaries though. These stories serve as reminders that God can use anyone, no matter how unlikely, to accomplish his will in their corner of the world.

Scripture: 1 Samuel 16:1-6; 1 Samuel 18:7; 1 Samuel 24:3; 1 Samuel 24:19

Part 3: King Solomon

As we conclude our study on Israel’s kings, let’s talk about the third crowned king of Israel. He was David and Bathsheba’s son and the ruler who successfully put Jerusalem on the international map. His name was Solomon. He was well-known for three things: his wisdom, his wealth, and his works. All of these traits are impressive, but they’re merely sprays of Windex that help us see Jesus clearly. 

Scripture: Luke 11:31; 1 Kings 3:5; 1 Kings 3:3; Ecclesiastes 2:9-11; 1 Chronicles 17:11-14; Matthew 3:2; Mark 1:15
