Kings, books of means in the bible: The Jews considered them to be one book. According to the Greek translation, the book Samuel and book of Kings were divided into two sections. The four parts became the books of the Kings. Although the Greek division was not followed by the English and Latin versions, they have mirrored it. The history is told in the books of Kings, which include the rebellion of Adonijah and the captivity of Judah. They also cover the entire history of the north kingdom between its separation until its dissolution in 721 B.C. You can find the sequence of events under Bible Chronology, which is in the appendix. Unknown writer compiled the books from various written documents including state chronicles.
