Sample text

For example, consider the story of the golden calf. I n the book of Exodus, God speaks the Ten Commandments out loud to the Israelites from the heavens over the mountain of God. Moses then climbs the mountain alone to receive a carved set of the commandments on stone tablets. W h e n Moses delays to return, the people make a golden calf and sacrifice in front of i t . Their leader, the man who personally makes the golden calf, is Moses' own spokesman, Aaron. When Moses returns and sees the calf, he throws down and smashes the tablets in his anger.

And for the Bible. They were the two chief priests. Abiathar, the northern priest, from the old priesthood of Shiloh, and possibly a descendant of Moses, supported Adonijah. Zadok, the southern priest, from Hebron i n the tribe of Judah, and possibly a descendant of Aaron, supported Solomon. David chose Solomon. W i t h the professional army behind h i m , Solomon won without an actual fight. After David's death, Solomon ordered the execution of his half brother Adonijah and of Adonijah's general, Joab.

When David received the support of the priests of Shiloh, Saul had them all massacred—except one who escaped. Saul reigned until his death i n battle against the Philistines. After his death the kingdom was split between his son Ishbaal and David. Ishbaal ruled i n the northern portion of the country; David ruled i n his own tribe, Judah, which was the largest of the tribes, almost the size of all the other tribes together, encompassing the southern portion of the country. Ishbaal was assassinated, and then David became king over the entire country, north and south.
