ABSTRACT

Jeroboam banded together with the Mushite priests who agreed with idolatry. It is the northern Israelite theology which accepted idol worship. Aaronite priests were against this theology. The main theological differences were whether to comply with the law or to heed the voice of people. The religious reformation of Jeroboam was associated with the popular ideology rather than the law. According to Realpolitik, therefore, it was popular rule which led to the northern Israelization of YHWH religion. In conclusion, the reason of the destruction of northern Israel was not only Jeroboam’s religious policy but also spiritual leadership of Mushite Priests.
