Rehoboam

This is my Rehoboam Timeline for Libronix.

One of the more interesting facts about him is that his father Solomon had been king all of Rehoboam’s life, and he was 41 when he took the throne… I wonder if he wasn’t jealous of his father… As nothing is mentioned (that I remember), I would assume he really didn’t do much to make a name for himself before his father died, and was always known as Solomon’s son even past his prime… (I’m about 40 myself, so i can say this.) Even after he became king of Judah and lost the northern kingdom, he had to be humbled by God through the Pharaoh…

Pride (not seeking God first) cost him most of his kingdom (the divided kingdom), his ability to worship God (the treasures of the temple stolen), and to be a leader (evil in the land).

As always, correction and comments are welcome…
