Transcript

  • 1. Laindon Bible Class 22 April 2009
  • 2.
    • Humble repentance
    • [only mentioned in Chronicles]
    • Abhorrent wickedness
    • [Judah’s most evil king?]
  • 3.  
  • 4.
    • Born to King Hezekiah during the 15 year extension to his life
    • Perhaps this is reflected in Manasseh’s name (“causing to forget”, “to cause to forget”), Hezekiah’s illness having been put away
    • Manasseh came to the throne at just 12 years of age*
    • He had the longest reign of any King of Israel or Judah (yet the scriptural account of him is short)
    • First King of Judah** to experience entire reign with no northern Kingdom of Israel (which came to an end during the reign of Hezekiah, around 709 BC)
    ** i.e. After division of Kingdom into two parts: southern kingdom of Judah and northern kingdom of Israel * Was probably a period of co-regency at end of Hezekiah’s life and prior to Manasseh’s 12 th year (to fit with years up to accession of Jehoiachin)
  • 5.
    • Manasseh and the Lord Jesus Christ
    • Manasseh actually undid his Father’s acts...
  • 6. No less than 12 specific acts of wrongdoing / sin mentioned, a horrific catalogue (note: “my name”) As per one commentator ’The Nero of Palestine’
  • 7. No vestige to remain, dish to be emptied fully out
  • 8.  
  • 9.
    • The next verses in the 2 Kings account cover the death of King Manasseh (and the accession of his son Amon)...
    • Is there anything else to say about our subject?
  • 10.  
  • 11. According to Jewish tradition Manasseh taken captive in the 22 nd year of reign “ Among the thorns” is in NKJV “with hooks” “ King of Assyria” but “Babylon” (?) Esarhaddon (681 – 669 BC) rebuilt and elevated this city, having put down the Chaldeans
  • 12.
    • Deferral of punishment (Divine longsuffering)
    • Compare with God’s longsuffering in our own day and age... ()
  • 13.  
  • 14.
    • Not buried alongside the pre-eminent kings:
    • A lower form of burial, perhaps linking with his former acts
    • Son Amon the 5 th shortest of the reigns of a King of Judah (just 2 years)
  • 15.  
  • 16.
    • Faithfulness is not by blood line ( Hezekiah > Mana sseh > Amon > Josiah )
    • When acts of idolatry are performed these are against God’s own name
    • If not differentiating one’s self from the heathen then will be punished like them
    • Some seeming asymmetries in scripture can in themselves contain patterns (Kings vs. Chron.)
    • God is very merciful and provides ample time
