Rehoboam, the son of Solomon and grandson of David, was the fourth king of the United Kingdom of Israel. His reign is recorded in the biblical books of Kings and Chronicles. Rehoboam’s inability to preserve his royal lineage can be traced to his actions after he ascended the throne.
Upon assuming kingship, Rehoboam faced a challenge in the form of discontent among the northern tribes of Israel. The people were burdened by heavy taxes and labor imposed by Solomon during his reign. In an attempt to address the grievances, Rehoboam sought counsel from the older advisors who had served his father.
However, he rejected their advice to lighten the burdens on the people, choosing instead to follow the counsel of his younger peers who advised him to exert even greater authority. In a famous moment, Rehoboam declared to the northern tribes, saying that his finger is thicker than that of his father’s loins, which implies that he would be a more formidable and demanding king.
This arrogant response led to a rebellion, and ten of the twelve northern tribes seceded from the kingdom, forming the northern kingdom of Israel. Only the tribes of Judah and Benjamin remained loyal to Rehoboam, establishing the southern kingdom of Judah.
The division weakened the united monarchy, and from that point on, there were two separate lines of kingship—those of Judah in the south and those of Israel in the north. This division ultimately contributed to the downfall of both kingdoms. The northern kingdom of Israel fell to the Assyrians, while the southern kingdom of Judah fell to the Babylonians.
Rehoboam’s failure to heed wise counsel and his harsh treatment of the people played a significant role in the disintegration of the united kingdom, leading to the loss of the northern tribes and the fragmentation of his royal lineage.

One day, as Jesus was standing by the Sea of Galilee, the crowd was pressing in on Him to hear the word of God. Seeing two boats at the water’s edge, the fishermen had disembarked and were washing their nets. One of these boats belonged to Simon, who would later be known as Peter.
Jesus, wanting to address the crowd without being pressed too closely, got into Simon’s boat and asked him to put out a little from the shore. From there, He taught the people.
When Jesus had finished speaking, He said to Simon, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.” Simon, a seasoned fisherman, responded with a hint of skepticism, explaining that they had worked hard all night and caught nothing. Nevertheless, he agreed to do as Jesus said.
Once they had cast the nets into the deep water, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. They signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. Both boats were filled with fish to the point of almost sinking.
Witnessing this miraculous catch, Simon Peter fell at Jesus’ knees and said, “Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man!” Peter recognized the divine power at work and felt unworthy to be in the presence of such holiness.
But Jesus reassured him, saying, “Don’t be afraid; from now on you will fish for people.” In that moment, Jesus called Simon Peter to follow Him and become a fisher of men. Simon, along with his partners James and John (sons of Zebedee), left everything and followed Jesus.
(PICK ANY THREE)
(i) Through divine revelation
(ii) Through divine inspiration
(iii) Through Inner Conviction and Spiritual Discernment
(iv) Through Miraculous Signs and Confirmations
(v) Through Personal Transformation
(vi) Through Crisis and Turning Points
(i) James advised Christians to live according to the word of the Lord which they had heard.
(ii) He said it would be no use to hear the word and fail to put it into practice.
(iii) According to James, if anyone is a hearer of the word and not the doer he is like someone who sees himself in a mirror and turns away, and immediately forgets himself.
(iv) James said that he who looks into the perfect law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer forgets but a doer that acts, he shall be blessed in his doing.
(v) James was of the opinion that if one thinks he is religious but does not bridle his tongue, he deceives his heart and his religion is vain.
(vi) James held the view that pure and undefiled religion before God should entail the visitation of orphans and widows in their affliction.
(vii) Pure religion also involved keeping oneself unstained from the world.
(viii) James said it is of no use to say you have faith but have no work to demonstrate the faith you have.
(ix) According to James, if someone is poorly clothed and hungry and you asked him to go in peace and be filled without providing the clothing and food to them, you are not backing your faith with works.
(x) Hence faith without works is dead and useless.
(xi) Belief in the only true God is good, for even the devil also believe that, but does not do the will of God. Hence faith in God without works is unacceptable.
(xii) Abraham justified his faith by work when he was prepared to sacrifice his son Isaac

(xvii) Faith should manifest itself in love of god and service to humankind and not mere expression of it by words.
(PICK ANY THREE)
(i) Lack of Faith or Commitment: Believers who lack genuine faith or commitment may struggle to put their faith into practice. If one’s belief system is weak or insincere, it becomes challenging to live out those beliefs in daily actions.
(ii) Unpleasant Experience: Negative or unpleasant experiences, such as personal hardships or traumas, can shake one’s faith and create a barrier to actively practicing it. Unresolved pain or disillusionment may hinder individuals from fully engaging with their faith.
(iii) Worldliness: Excessive attachment to worldly pursuits, materialism, and the desire for worldly success can divert believers from living out their faith. When the priorities are centered around worldly achievements, spiritual practices may take a back seat.
(iv) Financial Constraints: Financial limitations can impact the ability to engage in certain acts of charity or service. Believers facing economic challenges may find it difficult to contribute financially to their faith community or engage in acts of generosity.
(v) Fear: Fear, whether it be fear of persecution, judgment, or the unknown, can paralyze believers and prevent them from actively expressing their faith. Fear may hinder individuals from taking bold steps in alignment with their beliefs.
(vi) Bad Influence: Negative influences from peers or surroundings can lead believers away from practicing their faith. If one is surrounded by individuals who do not prioritize or actively discourage religious practices, it can become a significant obstacle.
(vii) Ignorance of the Word of God: Lack of knowledge about the teachings and principles of one’s faith can impede the application of that faith. Ignorance may result in actions that are contrary to religious values or a failure to recognize opportunities for positive engagement.
(viii) Laziness: A lack of motivation or initiative, often manifesting as laziness, can hinder believers from actively living out their faith. It may lead to neglecting religious duties, acts of kindness, or opportunities for spiritual growth.
(ix) Time Constraints: Busy schedules and competing priorities can create time constraints that limit the ability to engage in religious practices or acts of service. Balancing work, family, and other commitments may leave little time for spiritual activities.
(x) Lack of Self-Control: The inability to exercise self-control over various aspects of life, including behaviors and desires inconsistent with religious teachings, can hinder the practice of faith. A lack of discipline may lead to actions contrary to one’s beliefs.
Note: The answers below are the 2020 Nov/Dec answers.
A man from tribe of Benjamin ran from the battle line and went to Shiloh with his clothes torn and dust on his head. When he arrived, there was Eli sitting on his chair by the side of the road, watching, because his heart feared for the ark of God. When the man entered the town and told what had happened, the whole town sent up a cry. Eli heard the outcry and asked, “What is the meaning of this uproar?”
The man hurried over to Eli, who was ninety-eight years old and whose eyes had failed so that he could not see. He told Eli, “I have just come from the battle line; I fled from it this very day.” Eli asked, “What happened, my son?” The man who brought the news replied, “Israel fled before the Philistines, and the army has suffered heavy losses. Also your two sons, Hophni and Phinehas, are dead, and the ark of God has been captured.” When he mentioned the ark of God, Eli fell backward off his chair by the side of the gate. His neck was broken and he died, for he was an old man, and he was heavy. He had led Israel forty years. His daughter-in-law, the wife of Phinehas, was pregnant and near the time of delivery. When she heard the news that the ark of God had been captured and that her father-in-law and her husband were dead, she went into labor and gave birth, but was overcome by her labor pains. As she was dying, the women attending her said, “Don’t despair; you have given birth to a son.” But she did not respond or pay any attention. She named the boy Ichabod, saying, “The Glory has departed from Israel” because of the capture of the ark of God and the deaths of her father-in-law and her husband. She said, “The Glory has departed from Israel, for the ark of God has been captured.
(i) Death – The Bible said that children should honour father and mother, so that they will live long.
(ii) Destruction – Disobedience of children to the family leads to destruction of a society
(iii) Suffering – Childen’s Dldisobedience to the family leads to Slsuffering. Eg, the prodigal Son
(iv) Curse – Disobedience of children may bring curse to the family.
When Jesus was about 30 years old, God called his cousin John, the son of Zechariah, to preach. He started preaching in the area around the Jordan River where no one lived. But when people heard about him, they started coming out to listen to him preach. He was saying, “Repent” (that is, change your hearts and lives), “Because the kingdom of heaven is coming soon.” People were telling of the sins they had done wrong, and John was dipping them in the Jordan River so that God would forgive their sins. That is why people started calling him John the Baptist and John the Baptizer, because the word “baptize” means “to dip in water.”
John also told the people: “there is a person coming later who is greater than I am. I am not good enough to kneel down and unite his shoes. I am dipping you in water. But that person who is coming will dip you in the Holy Spirit.” John did not know at that time who that person would be, but God told him, “You will see the spirit come down and rest on a man. That man us the one who will dip people in the Holy Spirit.”
At that time Jesus came from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to the place where John was. He wanted John to baptize him, that is, to dip him in water. John knew that Jesus was a good man, and so he tried to stop him. He told Jesus, “I need to be baptized by you! Why do you come to me?” Jesus answered, “Let it be this way for now. For in this way it is proper for us to complete everything that is right.” So John agreed to baptize Jesus.
Now after John had dipped Jesus in the Jordan River, Jesus came up out of the water and started praying. And the sky opened and the spirit of God came down in the form of a Dove and sat on Jesus. And a voice spoke from Heaven. It said, “This is my son, whom I love. I am very pleased with him.” After that, John the Baptist started telling people that Jesus was the son of God.
(i) It is the fulfillment of prophesy
(ii) Jesus’ baptism reflects our need for salvation.
(iii) It proves that Jesus is the true Messiah that is to come
According to James, Christians should count it all joy, when they go through difficulties because it tests their faith and when faith is tested it produces steadfastness which makes a person perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
He taught that if anybody lacks wisdom, that person must ask God who gives it out generously without holding back. James wrote that whoever asks from God must ask in faith, not doubting because a person who doubts is like the wave of the sea, that is, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.
Teaching about faith and works, James said it does not profit a man if he said he has faith but lacks works because his faith can never save him. For instance, if a person is feeling cold because he is not wearing warm clothing, you do not tell the person to be warmed without providing him with warm clothing. So also when a person is hungry, you do not tell the person to be filled without giving him food. If such a person is not given what he really needs, work done is zero. The moral is that faith not backed by works is dead.
To James, when Abraham tried to offer his son Isaac on the altar, he was justified by works. He taught that Abraham’s faith was complemented by his work (offering Isaac to God). James also spoke of Rahab the harlot, how she received the messengers of Israel and sent them out on another route to save their lives. This also showed that her faith was justified by works. Therefore, to James, a man is justified by faith and works, not by faith alone.
James concluded that as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead.
(i) By providing the needs of those who are incapacitated.
(ii) By obeying the instructions or commandments of God
In Peter’s teaching on good citizenship, he told the people to make themselves subject to every human authority. It does not matter whether it is the emperor himself or the Governors sent by him to reward the just and punish the wicked because it is the will of God. When they do this, according to Peter, they will silence the ignorance of fool Peter advised them to live as people who are free but also they should not use their freedom as a pretext to foment evil. Peter told them to live as servants of God. They must honour everybody, love the brotherhood. They must fear God and honour the emperor. In other words Peter also teach them about salvation, if you have tasted the kindness of the Lord. And he told them about coming to Him as to a living stone which has been rejected by men, but is choice and precious in the sight of God, you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For this is contained in Scripture.
