Journal Through the Bible: Week 49 Friday

I Kings chapter 13

Does God issue any commands?

  • God told the prophet who delivered the message to Jeroboam not to eat or drink in Israel. He was not to turn back either but was to leave that place. (He disobeyed when he believed the lying prophet.)
  • The prophet that lied to the first prophet then told him that God was going to kill him for his disobedience.

Does God make any promises?

  • God promised that a descendant of David, named Josiah, would burn the bones of the priests who offered sacrifices upon Jeroboam's altar to his false god upon that very altar.

Does this chapter teach anything about Jesus?

  • The prophet who was sent by the LORD delivered the message but then was deceived and disobeyed because he forgot his mission. Jesus was sent by God also but He delivered His message while remaining sinless. He never forgot His message.

Does this chapter teach anything about yet-future events?

  • Just as the old prophet who deceived the other prophet testified that the message delivered to Jeroboam would indeed come to pass we can be sure that the message delivered to us about judgment to come will also come to pass.
