A Kingdom Torn In Two
Topic: Conflict Scripture: 1 Kings 12:7–15:16
Of the 12 tribes of Israel, only those living in the towns of Judah stay with Rehobaom. The rest rally behind Jeroboam and make him their king
10 of the twelve tribes form the Nation of Israel to the north. The tribe of Simeon is melded into the tribe of Judah and they form the Nation of Judah to the southThis division happened in 930 BC and remains that way throughout the rest of the Old Testament – 530 years!
Division is a nasty to place live. It churns our stomachs, it boils our blood, it robs us of joy.
