Kingdoms

Introduction

The most glorious part of the history of Israel was the United Kingdom, so called to distinguish it from the Divided Kingdom which followed. The death of Solomon ended the greatest period in the history of Israel, the United Kingdom. This was followed by the Divided Kingdom which lasted 388 years.

As we move forward to the New Testament we see the greatest kingdom of all being established, the kingdom of God.


The most glorious part of the history of Israel was the United Kingdom, so called to distinguish it from the Divided Kingdom which followed, it lasted from about 1095 to 975 B. C. and included the reigns of three great kings – Saul, David, and Solomon. The story of this period is related in the two books of Samuel, the first eleven chapters of l Kings and parts of the Chronicles. The United Kingdom

The death of Solomon ended the greatest period in the history of Israel, the United Kingdom. This was followed by the Divided Kingdom which lasted 388 years. At Solomon’s death, his son Rehoboam ascended the throne. His subjects had long chafed under the heavy taxation of Solomon. Led by Jeroboam, a general of Solomon’s, they asked Rehoboam to lighten their load. The Divided Kingdom

The Lord’s ministry began about AD 27 and he was crucified about AD 30. The Mosaic law became defunct when the Lord was crucified, Colossians 2:14 ‘having cancelled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross’. So, the Lord gave this teaching during the Mosaic era, the establishment of His kingdom was still in the future. The Coming Of The Kingdom Of God!
