2 Kings

 What happened to Israel?

After the events of 1 Kings, the people of God were divided into a North and South Kingdom.  Judah and Israel both thought they were the true followers of the Way of God.

Both of them drifited from the true path, and eventually both were destroyed.
But not completely.

God allowed them to be conquered, but he preserved a remnant in both cases.  Followers who would be able to spread the word, to their captors and to the other nations.

Judah and Israel.
Both nations carried away.
An exile begun.

Sinning, and turning away from God, has consequences.
But God never forsakes us, and always has a plan to bring us back, no matter how far we go from him, or how separated we feel.
