The Preaching of Jonah Against Nineveh

“God selects a man from southern Galilee by the name of Jonah to take a special message of repentance to the heathen Assyrians living in the great metropolitan area of Nineveh. 

The basic improbability of the mission, as viewed through human eyes, is underscored when Jonah attempts to evade his special responsibility and is swallowed by a large fish which God miraculously provides for the occasion.  Thereby convinced of God’s limitless power, Jonah proceeds to deliver the message that Nineveh is about to be destroyed and that repentance is in order.

The account is an amazing demonstration of God’s universal grace and divine concern at a time when a rather exclusivistic Israel is in great need of a reminder that, despite being God’s chosen people, their failure to repent actually lowers them to a level of spirituality beneath even penitent pagans.”

“The historical record now confirms Jonah’s mission and tells how God gives Jeroboam great military success and prosperity.”

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.”

Solomon’s Glory Fades

“An inspired writer of a later time will issue the warning, ‘If you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall!’  It is an appropriate warning for both men and nations and surprising that the wisest man of the age could so easily ignore the warning.  Yet how often do men fall at the height of success, and the greater the height, the greater the fall!  Solomon enters into forbidden marriages with women of foreign extract and is soon influenced to worship their foreign gods.  Solomon’s fall stands as a powerful reminder of how easy it is to turn from adoration to idolatry.”
