King Solomon’s son Rehoboam so angered the people that they rebelled. Consequently the nation separated into two kingdoms, Judah and Israel. The new king of Israel, the northern kingdom, quickly led his people into idolatry. Many of the Levites living there realized their only option was to flee Israel for Judah and the true faith of Yahweh. Their faithfulness is clear picture of what Jesus asks of all those who follow Him.
