Lessons From The Life of Josiah (2 Kings 23:24-25)

Part of the Men of the Old Testament series, preached at a Sunday Evening service

When Jeroboam was made king, he led the people of the northern kingdom off into idolatry setting up golden calves at Bethel and Dan. It was prophesied that one day, a man of the house of David named Josiah would defile the altar at Bethel (1 Kings 13:1-3). Josiah was Judah’s last righteous king and a great religious reformer. Let’s consider some lessons we can learn from the life of Josiah.

2 Kings 23:24–25 (Listen)

24 Moreover, Josiah put away the mediums and the necromancers and the household gods and the idols and all the abominations that were seen in the land of Judah and in Jerusalem, that he might establish the words of the law that were written in the book that Hilkiah the priest found in the house of the LORD. 25 Before him there was no king like him, who turned to the LORD with all his heart and with all his soul and with all his might, according to all the Law of Moses, nor did any like him arise after him.
