THE JOURNEY TO THE PROMISED LAND
HERE ARE THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, WRITE THEM ON TABLETS
I am King Saul. I was a great warrior, but weak personally. I was also jealous of David
The Kingdoms of Israel and Judah
I am King David. I am considered as the greatest of all kings of Israel.
I am King Solomon. I built the Temple, but I worshipped power and money instead.
Patriarchs have a special covenant with God. This covenant began with a man named Abraham and his wife Sarah. God promised that their descendants will be numerous and would inherit the Promised Land. Abraham and Sarah eventually did have a child, even though they were nearly a hundred years old. They named their child Isaac creating another Patriarch and continuing the family tree.
Boo... What a disgrace!
The Journey to the Promised Land was led by Moses to lead the Israelites to freedom. On their way to the Promised Land, they stopped at Mount Sinai, where Moses received the 10 Commandments.It took them 40 days in the desert before reaching the region of Canaan. Unfortunately, Moses died just before they crossed the Jordan River. After Moses died, a leader named Joshua took over and brought them to Canaan.
Be gone Greeks!!
During the reign of King Saul, the 12 Tribes became divided. The ten tribes in the north became known as Israel and the other two became known as Judah. Due to Saul's son being murdered, people turned to David to become king. King David reunited all the 12 Tribes and led his people to many victories against enemies. King David also made Jerusalem known as the City of David, where he built a palace. It was a prosperous time during Solomon's reign and built the Temple. However, in order to build the great Temple, Solomon taxed the people heavily.
Hey you! We choose you to be the puppet King.
Alexander the Great conquered most of the Mediterranean region, including Palestine. When Alexander the Great died, Palestine was divided in two. One of these Generals was based in Syria and the other in Egypt. Due to the distance of Egypt from Palestine, the Greek power rarely interfered with the Jewish lifestyle. However, Syria was greatly influenced by the Greek. This caused the Jewish-Egyptians to dislike the Jewish-Syrians, and call their land "Galilee of the Gentiles.
A group of rebel Jews formed, known as the Zealots. They formed a rebellion against the Greeks to gain independence for the Jews. The Greeks was furious and destroyed the great Temple, in place for a Temple for Zeus. The destruction of the sacred Temple was the ultimate form of disrespect for Jews, this caused an outrage. In the end, the Jews won and got their independence.
Jewish independence lasted for about 100 years before the Romans took over. The Romans carefully selected leaders from the conquered people themselves to rule on behalf of the Romans. The Romans chose an Idumean Jew named Herod to rule the people of Israel. Herod rebuilt the great Temple, however, he was a cruel man. It was written that he ordered for all newborns to be killed, due to the birth of a Messiah.
