Old Testament Notes
Jeroboam was the first king of the Northern Kingdom of Israel.
He was born to the window Zereda and as a young man served as the superintendent
of forced laborers under king Solomon. His reign over the Northern Kingdom
lasted twenty-one years.
See: Jean-Honoré Fragonard. Jeroboam
Sacrificing to the Idols.
This painting depicts a scene from the Old Testament. A prophet from
the tribe of Judah condemns king Jeroboam for worshipping idols and turning
his back on God. When the king raises his hand to order the manís arrest,
it becomes withered and paralyzed.
