April 10, 2021 | Kings of Israel: King Manasseh

King Manasseh

After studying three of Judah’s most faithful kings, we’re analyzing Manasseh, a wicked king who led God’s people into evil. Though he reigned longer than any other king in the split Kingdoms of Judah and Israel, he led a life of wickedness that shaped his method of rule over Judah. Despite having the righteous King Hezekiah as his father, Manasseh’s reign serves as a cautionary tale that a person cannot become righteous through family—only by God’s grace.

The good news for Manasseh—and for us—is that his story doesn’t end there. His life shows us that no matter how great our sin is, God is always greater. Despite the mess Manasseh left for the Kingdom of Judah, redemption was never far behind. So no matter how dirty your life is, remember that the Lord can always make you clean again!

Apples of Gold: ‘Return to Me,’ says the Lord

Two young men asked Zvi for directions to the nearest synagogue after they explained to him that their synagogue was locked and they could not pray. Zvi asked them, “If every synagogue were locked, would you not pray?” The men were shocked by his disregard for Jewish customs that they felt were necessary to earn God’s favor. Though some of the older men warned the younger men not to listen to Zvi, they received more than directions when he used the opportunity to share truth and God’s love with them.


The Friends of Israel Today and Apples of Gold theme music was composed and performed by Jeremy Strong.
