Abstract. In the present article analyzes theories about the time of the occurrence and the specifics of non-biblical writing in the Ancient Israel. At the same time, the main attention is paid to the attempt to discover the written traditions that entered and became the basis for writ- ing 1–4 Kings. Despite the diverse and often contradictory theories of biblical critics examined in this work, there is all reason to suppose that the Ancient Israel' literature appeared, at least during the kings David and Solomon; the second stage of its development was associated with the activities of the Jewish king Hezekiah.
