2 Kings 22 & 23

  1. Make out a list of all that Josiah did, both positively to promote true religion, and negatively to destroy the false.
    Are our lives marked by a similar eagerness to depart from iniquity and to live in covenant with God?
    Cf. 2 Cor. 6:14-7:1.
    What was the mainspring of Josiah’s reformation zeal?
    Cf. Ps. 119:161b; Is. 66:2; see also 2 Kgs. 23:25; and contrast the behavior of Jehoiakim in Jer. 36:23-25.
  2. Examine the part played by Huldah the prophetess, and compare with the influence of other women mentioned in previous chapter.
