2 Leader BIBLE STUDY Use Week of: June 15, 2014 Warnings had come from the prophets for decades. God patiently waited for His people to turn from their sin. The prophet Jeremiah spared few details when he warned Judah what would happen if they did not turn from their evil ways. (See Jer. 25:1-14.) 3 The people of Judah did not change their ways. The kingdom had been declining for years, despite King Josiah s efforts to prompt nationwide repentance. When King Josiah died, the people went back to their old ways, worshiping idols and disobeying the Lord. The time of judgment had come. Like God had warned through Jeremiah, He used the king of Babylon King Nebuchadnezzar to deport the people from Judah to Babylon where they would live in exile for 70 years. King Nebuchadnezzar went to Judah when Jehoiakim was king. He put Jehoiakim in chains and took him to Babylon. Jehoiachin became king, and Nebuchadnezzar came back for him too. Many of the people in Judah were taken, along with treasures from the Lord s temple. Nebuchadnezzar put Zedekiah on the throne in Jerusalem. The people of Judah were unfaithful to God. Zedekiah rebelled against King Nebuchadnezzar, and God poured out His wrath on Judah. Nebuchadnezzar showed no mercy to the people of Jerusalem. The Babylonians set fire to the Lord s temple and the king s palace. They destroyed the wall around Jerusalem. King Nebuchadnezzar s armies carried most of the people away to Babylon as prisoners; only poor farmers were allowed to stay and work the land. The people were held captive in Babylon, serving the king for the next 70 years. God did not abandon His people. The prophet Jeremiah told what would happen next: The days are certainly coming when I will restore the fortunes of My people Israel and Judah (Jer. 30:3). God was going to save His people from captivity and raise up a new King a forever King from the line of David. (Jer. 30:9) 1 Preschool Bible Study Leader Guide Unit 18 Session 3

4 The BIBLE STORY Judah Was Taken into Captivity 2 Chronicles 36:1-21 King Josiah, the king of Judah, had three sons: Jehoahaz (jih HOH uh haz), Jehoiakim (jih HOY uh kim), and Zedekiah (ZED uh KIGH uh). Josiah had a grandson too. His name was Jehoiachin (jih HOY uh kin). Each of them had a turn at being king. None of them was good like King Josiah. First, the people who lived in Judah made Jehoahaz their king. Jehoahaz was not king for very long. He did bad things that God did not like. Jehoahaz was a lot like some of his relatives who were kings before him. They did wrong things too. One day, the king of Egypt came to Judah. He took Jehoahaz away and made him a prisoner. Jehoahaz had to give the king of Egypt lots of silver and gold. Now that Jehoahaz was a prisoner in Egypt, he couldn t be the king of Judah anymore. So his brother Jehoiakim became king. Was Jehoiakim a good king or a bad king? A bad king! Just like his brother, Jehoiakim did what was wrong. He did things that God did not like. One day, the king of Babylon came to Judah. He took Jehoiakim away and made him a prisoner. Now that Jehoiakim was a prisoner in Babylon, he couldn t be the king of Judah anymore. So Jehoiakim s son Jehoiachin became king. Was Jehoiachin a good king or a bad king? A bad king! Just like his father, Jehoiachin did what was wrong. He did things that God did not like. One day, the king of Babylon sent some of his servants to Judah. They took Jehoiachin to Babylon. They also gave some of the treasure from the temple to the king of Babylon. Now that Jehoiachin was in Babylon, he couldn t be the king of Judah anymore. The king of Babylon made Jehoiachin s uncle king. His name was Zedekiah. Was Zedekiah a good king or a bad king? A bad king! Just like his brothers, Zedekiah did what was wrong. He did things that God did not like. He led God s people to do wrong things too. Jeremiah the prophet 3 Preschool Bible Study Leader Guide Unit 18 Session 3

5 talked to Zedekiah. He warned Zedekiah that God would punish him for doing wrong things, but Zedekiah did not listen. God was not happy with the people of Judah. They did not obey God. They did whatever they wanted. God loved His people. He did not want to destroy them, so He sent prophets to talk to the people. The prophets said, Stop sinning! Turn back to God! But the people did not listen to the prophets. They laughed at the prophets and made fun of them. It was time for God to punish the people of Judah for their sin. God used the king of Babylon and his armies to punish the people. They attacked the people in Judah, and many of the people died. The king of Babylon took everything out of the Lord s temple. He took things from King Zedekiah and from his leaders. He took it all to Babylon. Then the king and his army burned the temple. They tore down the wall that stood around the city of Jerusalem. The army destroyed anything that was left. The king of Babylon took all of the people who did not die to Babylon, and he made them work for the king and his family. All of this happened just as God said it would. The prophet Jeremiah warned the people, but they did not listen. Christ Connection: God was right to punish His people because they sinned. But God still loved them, and He was going to give His people a good king, just like He said He would. Many years later, God sent His Son, Jesus, to be our King forever. Jesus took the punishment we should get for our sin. 4

12 hula hoop taped start line streamers music Note: See Psalm 137. Match shoes Guide kids to remove their shoes and place them inside a hula hoop. Scramble the shoes to separate pairs. Playing as a team relay, boys and girls run to the pile of shoes, find their matching shoes, run back to sit down behind the start line, and put their shoes on. Give help as needed. Say Kings of Judah were taken captive to faraway places because they did not obey God. The people did not listen to prophets who said, Stop sinning! Turn back to God! Then all the people were captured. Why were God s people in Judah captured? God punished His people for their sin. Move to music Say God gave His people many days in the year to celebrate: weddings, harvest, past events when God saved them in a mighty way, and feast times to meet with God. Most of these days were joyful with music, dancing, and food. Some of them took place at the temple. People played trumpets, cymbals, and instruments with strings like lyres (harps). Encourage kids to have fun moving to music. After a few minutes of celebrating, relate this to the Bible story. Say When the temple was burned, all its beautiful gold furnishings were taken to Babylon. The people were also taken to Babylon, far from home. They were sad, and they didn t feel like singing. They hung their lyres on trees instead of playing them. They cried when they remembered the good times of praising God in their own land. It was hard for them to feel joyful in Babylon. Why were God s people in Judah captured? God punished His people for their sin. 11 Preschool Bible Study Leader Guide Unit 18 Session 3
