Practical lessons on

the kings of Judah

Rehoboam
The king who lacked wisdom
Here is the first video of this very first series of practical lessons on the kings of Judah. Rehoboam! We see a great contrast between him and his father, Solomon.
Abijah
The king with great pretentions
Abijah was doing what seemed right from a religious point of view. He had the right kind of worship, everything was in order, but was the heart really there?
Asa
The king who started well
This new video quickly presents the highlights of the reign of Asa and three lessons for us.
Jehoshaphat
The king with bad associations
In this new video we see the great events of the reign of Jehoshaphat and three practical lessons for us.
Jehoram
The king who was not regretted
Jehoram’s reign was only 8 years. Why only 8 years? It is very short for all the trouble he caused in Judah, and for all the miseries that befell him.
Ahaziah
The king who was badly advised
Ahaziah was born into a family whose father did not follow his father’s ways. The environment in which he grew up was spiritually wicked.
Joash
The king who wanted to please others
There is much to learn from Joash’s character; but one particular thing emerges from his reign: it is his radical change of attitude after the death of Jehoiada.
Amaziah
The king who turned away from the Lord
Amaziah chose to do things his own way, after having experienced the help of God. When a prophet was sent to him from the Lord to make him realize the absurdity of what he was doing, Amaziah made it plain that he had better keep quiet.
Uzziah
The king who became leper
The apostle John takes great care to write to young people not to love the world or the things that are in the world, including the pride of life. We see the ravages of the pride of life with Uzziah.
Jotham
The king who learned his lessons
No bad things are mentioned concerning the reign of Jotham, despite what happened during his reign.
Ahaz
The king who gave himself up to evil
Uzziah and Jotham had worked to build cities in Judah, to equip the army, and to build war machines. All these things were impressive, but we see that even the best preparations, without God, are useless.
Hezekiah
The king who trusted in the Lord
At his death, Hezekiah was buried “in the highest place of the sepulchers of the sons of David; and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem did him honor” (2 Chronicles 32:33).
Manasseh
The king who provoked the Lord
If Hezekiah, the father of Manasseh, was an example of godliness, Manasseh did quite the opposite.
Amon
The king who multiplied his sin
Manasseh repented towards the end of his reign. But unfortunately the damage was done, not only among the people, but in his own home, in his children.
Josiah
The king committed with all his heart
Not only Josiah did not fit into what we could consider a family reputation, but quite the contrary, he still remains today a remarkable example of zeal and piety towards God.
Jehoahaz
The king of ephemeral reign
Jehoahaz did not know that his time was going to be short, and we do not know how long we have. Jehoahaz made a bad use of the short time he had.
Jehoiakim
The king who rebelled
In Jeremiah 22:13-19, a very vivid, but dramatic, description of Jehoiakim’s reign is given to us.
Jehoiachin
The king who surrendered
We have very little information concerning the reign of Jehoiachin; if we can call it a reign, for in fact Nebuchadnezzar besieged the city of Jerusalem. But the name of Jehoiachin comes up several times in the Word, being linked to several events.
Zedekiah
The king dominated by others
One thing is striking in the character of Zedekiah: it is his inconsistency.
