Flashcards in Jesus the Christ - James E. Talmage Deck (9)
What will help us better comprehend the true significance of the Lords life and ministry according to Talmage?
"Some consideration should be give. To the political, social, & religious condition of the people amongst whom He appeared and with whom He lived and died."
"The posterity of Abraham through Issac & Jacob had early come to be known by the title?"
Israelites or children of Israel
From Abraham to the death of what king were the 12 tribes called Israelites or children of Israel? And what did they divide into?
From Abraham through King Solomon's death they were known as Israelites or children of Israel.
Then there was a revolt and 10 of the 12 tribes didn't want king Solomon's son, Rehoboam, to reign. So they split and "retained the title Kingdom of Israel, though also known as Ephraim.
The people who wanted king Solomon's son, Rehoboam, to reign called themselves "distinctively Kingdom of Judah." This is because the majority of the tribe of Judah stayed with the reign of King Solomon's son, Rehoboam. There was also "part of the tribe of Benjamin" that stayed and "small remnants of a few other tribes."
The Kingdom of Israel (the 10 tribes who split) were also known or called Ephraimites. Because the king who ruled over them, Jeroboam, was from the tribe of Ephraim.
List the descendants/periods of time from Abraham to Solomon when the 12 tribes were ALL called the children of Israel or Israelites.
And what approximate year did they divide? According to B.D. & Talmage?
Abraham > Issac & Jacob > Moses > 4 decades of Exodus > Departure from Egypt under Moses > return to land of promise > administration of judges > united monarchy during successive reigns of: Saul, David, Solomon
Death of Solomon:
B.D. Approx. 925 B.C.
Talmage Approx. 975 B.C.
Who prophesied, years before the tribes divided that there would be a "division of the House of Israel into 2 Kingdoms?"
Look up 1 Kings 11:31-35
Why did the Kingdom of Israel divide into 2 kingdoms when King Solomon died?
What chapter in the Bible explains this?
1 Kings Chpt 11
Starts out in vs 1 that, King Solomon had many strange (meaning not Israelites) wives. Including: daughter of Pharoh, women of Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, & Hittites.
Vs 2 States how the Lord told the children of Israel, "he shall not go in unto them [strange women], neither shall they come unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their Gods." But Solomon didn't listen and as u see in vs 1 he did go to them. Solomon probably thought I won't change just because of these women. And he didn't for awhile. For it was in his old age when he started to change, thus Heavenly Father obviously knows and understands ourselves better than we do ourselves. So listen carefully to His counsel to you/us. For they are ALWAYS for our most happiness!!
Vs 3 "And he (Solomon) had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart.
Vs 4 "for it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other Gods: and his heart was not perfect with the Lord his God (JST: and it became as the heart) of David his father."
Vs 5. "For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, & after Malcom the abomination of the ammonites."
Vs 6. "And Solomon did evil in the sight of the Lord, (JST: as David his father) and went not fully after the Lord."
What tribes consisted of the Kingdom Judah and Israel?
Judah- "Judah, part of Benjamin, small remnants of a few other tribes." Rehoboam ruled
Israel- "other ten tribes. Jeroboam ruled. He was an Ephraimite.
Why was the Lord angry with Solomon?
Vs 9. "And the Lord was angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned from the Lord God of Israel, which had appeared unto him twice.
Vs 10. "And had commanded him concerning this thing, that he should not go after other gods: but he kept not that which the Lord commanded."
