Divided Kingdom Recap

As we started the Divided Kingdom period, it appeared that David’s dynasty was falling apart. The geographic boundaries changed, leaders had lost the trust of the people, and liturgical norms were compromised. Foreign gods and influence from the pagan neighbors increased the temptation toward idolatry for Israel and Judah. The kingdoms succeeded and failed as one and the prophets cried out for justice and holiness. The period ended in Exile.
