Here is a very interesting related read, albeit lensed through a Hebrew scholar perspective.

www.haaretz.com...


The Bible tells us that this process began when the 12 Israelite tribes united under the kings Saul, David and Solomon to form a great kingdom, centered in Jerusalem, sometime in the 11th 10th century B.C.E. The so-called United Monarchy fractured after Solomon’s death, with the great king’s son, Rehoboam, retaining control only over Judah and Jerusalem while the rebellious northern tribes broke away to form the Kingdom of Israel under a ruler named Jeroboam.

However, many scholars doubt that there was a United Monarchy to begin with.

There is little hard evidence of this great kingdom, which was likely an ideology-driven description of the Jerusalemite scribes who compiled this part of the Bible, probably in the late 7th century B.C.E., hundreds of years after the days of David and Solomon.

So if the biblical story on the United Monarchy and its breakup cannot be taken as history, how did the very real and historically-attested kingdoms of Israel and Judah form?

One compelling new theory suggests it may have to do with the involvement in the affairs of Canaan of a pharaoh named Sheshonq, or Shishak, depending who you ask.


It goes on to say:


Jeroboam is described as an official who led a failed rebellion against Solomon and found refuge at Shishak’s court to escape the Israelite king’s wrath (1 Kings 11). Jeroboam then returned to Canaan upon hearing of Solomon’s death and led the people against Rehoboam, successfully breaking away and forming the northern kingdom (1 Kings 12).

In the Septuagint, the earliest Greek translation of the Bible, there are additional verses about Jeroboam’s stay in Egypt that were not included in the traditional Hebrew text. In this version, Jeroboam’s connection to Shishak/Sheshonq is even stronger: he marries the pharaoh’s sister-in-law, who bears him a son.

Why does a spirit need a spaceship? LOL

"See this is where the idea of the trinity is not correct. Remember Jesus was a physical being"

But Jesus also had a spirit the same as you have a spirit. Man is procreated in the image and likeness of the Creator.
My answer is why do you need a terrestrial body for your spirit to live in? Every spirit needs a body to live in.

1Corinthians_15:44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

The Creator can appear in many forms and wherever He pleases and can be quadrinity as well as trinity if so desired.

Please, do not get confused with Soloman or his father David. David reigned from 1010 bc to about 970 bc and had nothing to do with the Septuagint. In fact the original Septuagint was just the 5 books of Moses [Torah]. The rest of the Hebrew bible [Tanakh] was edited many times later and long after the Septuagunt [Torah] was translated from Hebrew to Greek. The Tanakh was continually edited from about 200 bc to 200 ad. -- What you see now as the Septuagint was not the original Hebrew to Greek Torah and the rest of the Septuagint has been edited so many times that hardly any of it can be authorized as pure. Actually what you see now as the Tenach is nothing but copy. Stay with the Masoretic MSS and dead sea scrolls as much as you can. lol
