Sermon Notes

GodisSpeakingDSWe pick up The Story in chapter 15 or the Book of 2 Kings. Because the
Bible is arranged topically and not chronologically, many people will enter
“the black hole” of their Bibles at this point. The Old Testament books are
arranged as history, poetry and prophecy. It’s at this point that the story
seems to get jumbled up and further confused by the division of God’s
people into two kingdoms—10 tribes called Israel in the north and two
tribes in the south called Judah. We will see that this divided Kingdom
leads to much unfaithfulness in the land. God sends messengers – the
prophets, but they are ignored. God’s people continue to disobey. Despite
this tension, God, as He always does, remains active and faithful.
