The ancient kingdoms of Israel and Judah experienced the leadership of many kings—some were good, though most were evil. Is there anything we can learn from the successes and failures of these ancient kings? It turns out, there’s a lot! In this course, you will explore forty lessons learned from the kings of Judah (and a few from Israel)—lessons that will prove invaluable for leaders today in various capacities and from all walks of life.


I really enjoyed this course because I think it changed my walk with God as a whole. I had my eyes and heart opened in ways I was not aware of. I loved this course and have definitely experience the fruits of my labor from learning this material. Thank you.

The course was interesting and informative. Bishop was very knowledgeable in the material and I enjoyed his use of humor to get the point across. I hope to have another course with him as leader.
