FIELD GUIDE TO THE BIBLE | WEEK 20: DIVIDED KINGDOM

SUMMARY: 
Due to Solomon's sin, Israel splits into two kingdoms-the Northern Kingdom of Israel and the Southern Kingdom of Judah.  Every northern king is evil.  Most of the southern kings are evil.  God will eventually judge their sin.

TWO KEY FIGURES:
1.  Rehoboam
  • Solomon's son
  • Became king of the Southern Kingdom (Judah)
  • He refused to listen to wise counsel and lost 10 northern tribes

2.  Jeroboam
  • Member of Solomon's Cabinet
  • Became king of the Northern Kingdom (Israel)
  • He erected two places of idol worship in the Northern Kingdom

MAIN POINT:  Divided __________________________>Divided (______________________).

  • "If your descendants watch how they live, and if they walk faithfully before me with all their heart...you will never fail to have a successor on the throne of Israel." (I Kings 2:4)

  • "As Solomon grew old, his wives turned his heart after other gods, and his heart was not fully devoted to the Lord his God, as the heart of David his father had been.  (1 Kings 11:4)

  • Reflection Question:  How is your  ____________________?

GOOD NEWS:  God promises to _______________________ us a new heart.

"For I will take you out of the nations; I will gather you from all the countries and bring you back into your own land. I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you form all your impurities and from all your idols.  I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove form you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.  And I will put m Spirit in you..." 
(Ezekiel 36"24-27)
