Adonijah, one of the sons of David, set himself up to be the King of Israel. However he was a pretender who constantly sought to tha short-cuts. This passage reminds us that, in God's kingdom, we don't need more pretenders.
Last week we learnt two important truths about 1 & 2 Kings.
That the book gives us a very selective account history … 400 years covered by 50,000 words.
That the original audience which Kings has in mind is the exiles in Babylon who have been there for about 30 years.
