Bible Lesson 24 Israel Becomes Divided

Memory Verse: 1 Peter 3:8 Finally, all of you be like-minded and sympathetic, love one another, and be compassionate and humble.    CSB

  1. God divided the kingdom of Israel as judgment for King Solomon’s sins, as well as for Rehoboam’s greed for higher taxes and Jeroboam’s pride in rejecting central worship at Jerusalem’s temple.
  2. Rehoboam refused to listen to the wise men in Israel and raised taxes. As a result, the kingdom of Israel was divided into two kingdoms–Israel and Judah.
  3. The two tribes that became known as the southern kingdom, ruled by Solomon’s son Rehoboam, were Benjamin and Judah. The Messiah would one day come from the tribe of Judah.
  4. The northern kingdom, known as Israel, consisted of 10 tribes ruled by Jeroboam.
  5. Immediately after Jeroboam became the king of the northern kingdom, he set up two golden calves for Israel to worship. His purpose was to prevent the people of the 10 tribes in his kingdom from returning to Jerusalem to worship and possibly reuniting with Judah.
  6. Israel’s wickedness and disobedience to God’s Word caused God to judge them.
  7. When the king was evil, he led his kingdom into wickedness. When the king was good, he led his kingdom toward God.
  8. When a building’s foundation is damaged, the building will fall easily. When Israel and Judah were disobedient to God and His Word, they damaged their nations’ spiritual foundation by rebelling against God and worshiping idols.
  9. Idolatry means the worship of idols.
  10. Idolatry was one of the main sins that led to the destruction of both Israel and Judah.
  11. All 19 of Israel’s kings were evil, contributing to the northern kingdom’s fall and eventual captivity by Assyria in 722 BC.
  12. Judah lasted 136 years longer as a nation than Israel did because it had 8 good kings out of 20 who turned their hearts back toward God. Judah eventually fell in 586 BC and was taken into captivity by Babylonia.
  13. God blessed Judah’s good King Jehoshaphat for being obedient and bringing Judah back to Him. God honored Jehoshaphat with presents, making him very powerful, and He gave Jehoshaphat property and mighty men to serve him.
  14. While living in Babylon, the Israelites were allowed to live normal lives. They built homes, practiced their faith, and continued in their pre-captivity occupations.
  15. The definition of quarrelsome is ready to argue.
  16. Unity means having the same mind.
  17. Quarrelsome people cause frustration for others. God desires for His people to live in unity with each other. They should not cooperate with evil or wicked people because they could be drawn away from God.
