The Divided Kingdom (Ca. 930-725 B.C.)

Division Between Israel and Judah

“Just as Solomon experienced a rise to unprecedented  heights of personal prosperity and security, only to fall victim to moral weakness and political conflict, so too his kingdom, in the hands of his son Rehoboam, is headed toward certain disaster.  Rehoboam will cause rebellion among the people of Israel.  Only the tribes of Judah and Benjamin will remain with Rehoboam, while the rest of Israel will appoint a man by the name of Jeroboam as their king.”
