Describe the lessons that we learn about suffering from the Book of Job:
We learn that suffering is not always a result of personal sin and is not a punishment from God. We learn that God does not want his people to suffer, and he hears our distress but he does allow it to happen. We learn that patience in our sufferings and struggles is essential if we are to grow in our relationship with God. We learn that God deserves our love and respect even when life doesn't go our way. We learn that God's ways are too immense and mysterious for our human minds to grasp.
What led to the united kingdom under King David and Solomon being divided into a northern and southern kingdom?
During King Solomon's reign, he started to tax the people to help pay for the many building projects that he undertook. He also forced them into military service and oppressed them by taking their crops, making them servants to the wealthy, royal family. Upon Solomon's death, the people approached his Son, the new king Rehoboam and asked him to please lighten the load that they had. He thought about it but in the end, he decided to make things worse for them because he wanted them to know that he was a stronger king than his father. This caused the people to rebel and 10 tribes refused to recognize Rehoboam as their king and instead selected Jeroboam to serve as their king. The tribes of Judah and Benjamin remained faithful to Rehoboam. The northern tribes kept the name of Israel and the southern nation became known as Judah.
Explain where Elijah heard the voice of God. What lesson does that provide for us today in our world?
There were earthquakes, storms and all of these loud events in which Elijah thought that God would reveal himself. But in all of these events, Elijah could not hear the voice of God. He finally hears the voice of God as a whisper in the gentle breeze. If we apply this to our lives today we might say that the earthquake and storms are the stress and busyness of our day to day lives. It is hard to hear God's voice because we are always busy and there is always so much noise and things that we are connected to like our phones, computers, etc. If we want to hear God speaking to us, we need to take time to be quiet to take time to actually listen for God's word to touch us.
Why was it hard to be a true prophet?
The true prophets had a difficult job because they were usually having to tell the people what they were doing wrong and how they needed to change their ways or there would be punishment by destruction and exile. It would have been much easier to tell the people that everything is cool and you just keep doing what you are doing. They stood up for the injustices of the world and because of it, some of them were mocked, beaten, and thrown in jail. It is sort of like having to stand up for something that you know is wrong but everyone is doing it.
Explain what good came from the Babylonian exile:
It was during the Babylonian exile when the Israelite people lost absolutely everything that they had that they turned to God and put their trust in him. They realized that they were in the situation that they were in because they had turned their backs on God and had denied him by worshiping false gods. We see the people finally being willing to die rather than to worship false gods. We see the process of repentance (making sorry for what they have done wrong in the past). It is sort of like someone who is an addict and has to hit rock bottom before they will be willing to accept help. This is where the Israelites were - rock bottom and they had to rely on God to raise them up.
Describe the three waves of people returning to Jerusalem. Include the people who led each wave and what the focus of the people were during each wave.
Once the Israelites were freed to return to Jerusalem after Babylon had been conquered by Persia, they did not all return at once but they returned in waves. The first wave was led by Zerrubbabel. They worked to return the temple first because if we have learned anything from the Israelites, it is that when they do not have a place to encounter God, they turn to false Gods. The second wave was led by Ezra who read the Law of Moses to the people to remind them what is expected of them and how they are to live if they want to live according to the covenant of God. The final wave was led by Nehemiah who built walls around the city to help to keep outside forces out of the city.
