2 Kings 11 & 12

In today’s portion we pass from the history of the northern kingdom to the re-establishment in Judah of the worship of Jehovah.

  1. What was Athaliah’s purpose, and by what two persons, under God, was it brought to nought? What new light does 2 Chr. 22:11 throw on the story?
    Compare with the faith and courage of Jehosheba and Jehoiada that of Moses’ parents (cf. Heb. 11:23).
  2. What signs of healthy moral and spiritual life do you find in these chapters, and in what respect shortcoming?
    What did Joash play in this?
    See further 2 Chr. 24:17-24.
