An Introduction to the Old Testament


Most modern translations follow the practice in the Septuagint and in Christian tradition of including Kings as part of a larger group of historical books beginning with Joshua and ending with Ezra-Nehemiah and Esther. The Hebrew Bible followed a different system of classification. It was divided into three sections: the law, the prophets, and the writings. The “prophets” were further subdivided into the “former” and “latter” prophets. The former prophets consisted of Joshua, Judges, Samuel, and Kings. These former prophets were followed in turn by the “latter prophets,” a division that included all the books ordinarily associated with the prophets (except for Daniel and Lamentations, both of which were in the third division, the writings).
