The Prophet Who Lied and the Prophet Who Died

Text: 1 Kings 13

Review: What were the sins of Jeroboam? What is he doing as chapter 13 begins?

What prophecy does the man of God make concerning Jeroboam?

What was Jeroboam’s reaction to the prophecy?

Why would the man of God not go home with Jeroboam to eat and refresh himself? (9)

What did the man of God do that disobeyed God and why did he do it?

After hearing of the death of the man of God what does the old prophet do?

What lesson do you learn from this story about the death of the man of God? (Maybe consider Galatians 1:8-9).

What is your best guess as to why the older prophet lied to the man of God?

What do we read at the end of this chapter about the reign of Jeroboam?

Back in Judah….

Rehoboam’s son, Abijam, was evil like his father (1 Kings 15:3). The next son Asa was different. Briefly summarize the reign of Asa (1 Kings 15:9-14).
