  • He traveled to Bethel, preached his message and then returned home
  • Uzziah was King of Judah (792-740 BC)
  • Jereboam was king of Israel (792-753 BC)
  • They formed an alliance together
  • 2-3 years after the message given, Jereboam died
  • Within space of 30 years, Assyria conquered Israel

Theme: God’s concern for justice

  • Jereboam brought prosperity to Israel and new wealth to the upper class. They used their wealth to enlarge their lands and build great houses for themselves
  • They violated the rights of the poor, and threw many off their ancestral lands
