28. Fall of the North (2 Kgs 15–17)Series: No King Like David (1–2 Kings)
The last forty years of the Northern Kingdom are told in brief, staccato detail. With limited--important!--exceptions, few details are given for each king other than his ascension, worship of idols, and death (often messy and early). By telling of Israel's end, God forecasts Judah's eventual destruction as well.
