The Fall of Jerusalem

Our hope is for our kids to know that: God judgment comes when his people do not repent

Key Verse:
“He saved us, not because or the righteous things we have done, but because of His mercy”
Titus 3:5a

Read:
(Open the bible and read to your child 2 Chronicles) God sends many prophets to the kingdom of Judah telling them to stop worshipping false gods. However the people along with the kings never follow God for long. Jeremiah warns to follow the true God or they will lose their land. But neither the kings nor the people of Judah listen, so as a result, Jeremiah’s prophecy comes true, and the people of Judah get taken into captivity for seventy years.

The Jesus Connection:
Read Jeremiah 23:5–6.
God sent his prophet Jeremiah to warn the kings of Judah. The kings did not listen to Jeremiah, and in the end, there was no remedy—God allowed Jerusalem to be ransacked and the people carried into captivity (2 Chronicles 36:16). God, however, was not finished speaking through Jeremiah. Jeremiah said that God would give his people another king from the line of David. This king would be a “righteous Branch” and he would be called “The Lord is our righteousness” (Jeremiah 23:5–6). Jesus is that King!
