Two Words to Unlock the Old Testament
North. South. Pretty simple, right? Many people get hopelessly lost in the Old Testament because they miss the division of the kingdom and the implications that follow. When Israel goes from being one kingdom with one king to two kingdoms with two kings, it's not that big of a deal . . . unless you missed the division in the first place!
When you have a grip on this, you're well on your way to understanding the prophets, too, because they typically write to either—you guessed it!—the North or the South! Hang in there, friends! We're almost to the end and you'll never regret persevering through God's Word!
Here are our questions:
• What was the biggest lesson you learned from studying about Solomon?
• What was the biggest lesson you learned from studying about Jeroboam?
• What is the biggest remaining question that you have from this section of the text?
Looking forward to hearing from you soon! Don't forget to give a word of encouragement to someone else this week as you make your post!
