Andrew Sach on Teaching 2 Kings

Help Me Teach The Bible

Published on 02/06/2020

The book of 2 Kings begins with the prophet Elijah being taken up into heaven in a chariot of fire, and it ends with Jerusalem being destroyed by fire with plenty of action and intrigue in between. So how do we make the most of teaching this book, clearly presenting its message and getting to the greater Elisha and the greater king it points toward?Andrew Sach, pastor of Grace Church Greenwich in greater London, has been teaching (and, interestingly enough, rapping) through the books of 1 and 2 Kings. He is also working on a book on 1 and 2 Kings for his Dig Deeper series. Having listened to some of his messages in person and others online, I noted nine things Andrew did as a teacher that make his teaching clear and compelling, which we worked through in our conversation. Andrew demonstrates how Elijah and Elisha relate to John the Baptist and Jesus at numerous points in their stories. He also talks about how the story of the northern tribes of Israel presents an opportunity to get to Christ as the ultimate prophet, while the southern tribes of Judah present an opportunity to get to Christ as the true king.Suggested Audio Resources:Sermon series on 2 Kings by Andrew SachChapel series on 2 Kings by Gary Millar “Life Among the Remnant,”a sermon series on 2 Kings, by Dale Ralph DavisPrint resources:Dig Deeperby Nigel Beyond and Andrew Sach2 Kings: The Power and the Fury by Dale Ralph Davis1-2 Kings: A 12-Week Study by Gavin Ortlund1 Kings(Reformed Expository Commentary Series) by Philip Ryken
