1 Kings 11 tells us that God allowed the kingdom to become divided, plundered, and disempowered because of the sin of:

Solomon

2

Who was the first king of the now-divided northern kingdom of Israel?

Jeroboam

3

Who was the first king of the now-divided southern kingdom of Judah?

Rehoboam

4

The evil king Jeroboam received an extremely harsh prophetic word from Ahijah the prophet. Who eventually brought this prophetic word to its fulfillment?

Baasha

5

In what way was Deuteronomy 13:1–5, 13-18, and 17:2-7 partially followed, specifically by the people watching Elijah at Mt. Carmel, and then later by Jehu, whom Elisha had anointed as king?

The prophets of Baal were executed en masse

6

After Elijah's tremendous breakthrough on Mt. Carmel, where God backed up Elijah's contest against Baal and Baal's prophets, Elijah ran for cover because he was intimidated by the murderous Jezebel. When God appeared to Elijah, what was the main thrust of God's word to him in that moment?

A recommissioning to his work for the Lord - to go back to his ministry of intervening in the situation with the kings, where he was to continue bringing the word of the Lord.

7

When the Holy Spirit transferred a "double portion" of Elijah's anointing to Elisha, a change followed in one major aspect of the leading prophetic ministry of the time. Which of the following best expresses that? (Review some of the text in 2 Kings chapters 2-6)

With Elisha there came a greater emphasis, or at least occurrence, of ministries of mercy, where the poor and lowly became recipients of God's miracle working power.

The kings of the divided kingdoms of Israel and Judah reigned for various lengths of time, some long and some very short, and made varying levels of economic and political gain for their kingdom. Interestingly, some of the most wicked kings were able to bring about very significant increase and enjoyed a relatively strong military-based security. In the record of the book of the Kings and Chronicles we have an occasional mention of these things, with notes for the interested reader to consult other books about the kings that are not in the Bible (and no longer available). That being said, what was the main focus of the writer/s of the books of Kings and Chronicles when it came to the history of the kings?

Their level of alignment with (either for or against) the God if Israel, and his covenant with his chosen people
