Spiritual lesson in progress

Steve Manhanga

It was interesting catching the end bits of a spiritual lesson Steve had with the 20 first year apprentices. The story he told was “The prophets speak of a coming King” and the question Steve asked the appy’s was “What have you learnt in today’s lesson?” Some of the responses were as follows:

Discussions going on in an attempt to answer a question

1. God helped Solomon build a temple.
2. The Israelites were carried away for 70 years due to their disobedience. Disobedience has consequences.
3. God did not send a prophet a 400 years.
4. King Solomon obeyed God at first and then was disobedient. He had 300 wives and 700 concubines totalling 1000 “wives”. He went astray from God because he started worshipping the gods of foreign women.
5. Messiah means anointed one.
6. The Nation of Israel split into 2: The Northern (Israel) and Southern Kingdom (Judah). These nations were not united. Infact, there was a civil war.

The apprentices then went on to ask questions before the lesson ended. It was great listening to how the apprentices participate in lessons. They obviously enjoy spiritual lessons.
