Eventually the administration of the kings ended after David and Solomon, and the administration of the prophets began. Deuteronomy 18:18-19 predicts God would raise up a prophet like Moses, having God’s authority. So, in the same way Moses carried the theocratic administration, the prophet was to carry it on. After Solomon’s passing, the kings only had authority over the social and governmental realm, while the prophet was a messenger of God. The entire message of the prophets can be summed up by saying “repent and believe in the hope of the coming Messiah”.
