Where can one find the book where the kings in the old testament such as
David, Solomon and other prominent leaders were mentioned, such as BOOK OF
THE HISTORY OF THE KINGS OF ISRAEL, HISTORY OF THE KINGS OF JUDAH?
These books have been lost. There were several books used as sources for
1 and 2 Samuel, 1 and 2 Kings and 1 and 2 Chronicles. The Book of Jashar
(Joshua 10:13 and 2 Samuel 1:18) is another of these lost books. In
addition there is the “Book of the Kings of Israel,” (1 Chronicles 9:1)
and the “Book of the Kings of Judah.” (2 Chronicles 16:11). Apparently,
the writers of the history books in the Old Testament relied on written
records which were available in their time. Unfortunately, all of these
sources, as with most ancient books, are now lost to humanity.
