The Fall of Jerusalem (2 Kings 23:28-37)
Sunday with your kids
Lesson summary: God’s judgment comes when his people do not repent.
In our bible story we learned:
1. Judah’s last kings are wicked.
2. God sends messengers but the kings don’t listen.
3. Jerusalem falls into judgment.
Where is Jesus?
How does today's Bible story fit into God's greater plan of redemption?
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!
