FOCUS Lenten Bible Study

For Benefactors, Friends, Alumni, & Parishioners

Session 11 - Fall of the Kingdom

Want supplemental resources? Here is the FOCUS Salvation History Bible Study and The Real Story by Curtis and Dr. Sri.

Verses: 1 Kings 1, 9-12, 2 Kings 17, 24

Discussion Questions

  1. How do the temptations of money, sex and power continue to lead people astray today, like they did for Solomon? How do we help others (and ourselves) work against these temptations?
  2. Do you have mentors in your life? Have you, like Rehoboam, tended to favor the advice of your peers over that of your elders? How has this impacted your life?
  3. We see the people of God split over the moral failings of their leader. Have you ever struggled with the moral failings of leaders in the Church? What does Salvation History teach us about God’s faithfulness to his chosen people, his law, and true worship?

Every week, FOCUS sends out the best resources available to:

  • Help you grow in your faith
  • Improve your evangelization strategy
  • Ignite your community on fire for Christ

“All who believe in Christ should feel, as an integral part of their faith, an apostolic concern to pass on to others its light and joy. This concern must become, as it were, a hunger and thirst to make the Lord known.”

– Pope St. John Paul II
