Zac Poonen – Bible Teacher

Let’s turn to 2 Kings — the 2nd book of Kings and Chapter 1.

This is the rest of the story of the two nations of Israel and Judah. Israel is the northern kingdom with 10 tribes. Judah is the southern kingdom with the 2 tribes of Judah and Benjamin.

And in the 2nd book of Kings we see about the different kings who ruled these two nations. Some of them were good, very few. Most of them were bad. In Israel almost everybody was bad. In Judah the southern kingdom, some were good.

And we see the captivity of the northern kingdom. It took place around 730 years before Christ when the Assyrian nation came and captured the northern kingdom of Israel. And the northern kingdom of Israel’s capital was Samaria. And they put their own people there and they mingled with the Jews and that’s how the Samaritans were born with whom the Jews did not have any dealings in Jesus’ time.

And the southern kingdom about 130 years later was captured by the king of Babylon which became the next world power after Assyria. That means the southern kingdom did not learn any lessons from the failure of the northern kingdom. Like we have often said, a wise man learns from the mistakes of others. A foolish man does it himself and sometimes still does not learn.
