Rehoboam's father, King Solomon, had levied relatively heavy taxes, which had been used for such large-scale endeavors as building the First Temple. The fact that the nation was so prosperous and happy in his time (1 Kings 4:20) demonstrates that Solomon conducted his governance in a praiseworthy manner.

After Solomon's death, the people approached his son Rehav'am (Rehoboam) and asked that he now lower the tax. He ignored the counsel of his elder advisers and refused the people's request. This led the Ten Tribes to turn away from him (1 Kings ch.12).

The background reason was because King Solomon had been less than perfectly righteous. This led God to punish him by diminishing his dynasty in the lifetime of his son (Rehoboam). 1 Kings ch.11. A deeper reason is that God wanted the more righteous people of Judah to be influenced by the Ten Tribes as little as possible.

The ten commandments were given to the twelve tribes of Israel by Moses. The twelve tribes were formed from the twelve sons of Jacob about 400 years before the commandments were given to them.


I am assuming that you are asking if the twelve disciples came from each of the 12 tribes of Israel. First of all there were many disciples but Jesus did select twelve to be the closest to him. All twelve tribes are not represented. We know this because there were two sets of brothers (Andrew and Peter, James and John) so that the maximum number of tribes represented is ten.

During most of the First Temple era, the twelvetribes of Israel were divided into the two kingdoms of Judah and Israel. Judah had two tribes, while Israel had ten. The ten tribes of Israel were exiled to points unknown, by the Assyrians, and are now lost to us. The two tribes of Judah, however, constitute the majority of the Jewish people today, with the addition of the Levites and a small number of each of the ten lost Israelite tribes (who had joined Judah before their exile).


After King Solomon died his son Rehoboam became king. The ten tribe leaders came to Rehoboam and said (I Kings 12:1-17), "Your father made our yoke heavy; now therefore lighten the burdensome service of your father, and his heavy yoke, which he put on us and we will serve you." To make a long story short Rehoboam refused and so the ten tribes broke away from the full kingdom of Israel and made a new kingdom of the northern ten tribes.

Assuming you are referring to the twelve tribes of Israel, here they are: Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Issachar, Zebulun, Joseph and Benjamin. These are the twelve sons of the patriarch Jacob (as in "Jacob and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat", and they were born in that order. All of them except Judah and Benjamin (often referred to as "the half-tribe of Benjamin") have been lost, leading to the name "the ten lost tribes". There are lots of conspiracy theories involved there.



Jeroboam had ten of the twelve tribes under his rulership: all except Judah and Benjamin.


One of Jacob's twelve sons was named Asher (Genesis ch.30), and his descendants were called the tribe of Asher, one of the Twelve Israelite Tribes. Today the location of the bulk of this tribe is lost, since they were exiled among the Ten exiled Tribes before the First Destruction some 2600 years ago.

The Ten Lost Tribes of Israel were ten of the twelve tribes of the Ancient Israelites who were defeated by the Assyrians and forcibly deported (as was common Assyrian custom).

At the time of King Solomon's death, the people approached his successor, Rechav'am (Rehoboam) and asked him to ease up on their tax burden. When he refused, they broke away under their spokesman, Yerav'am (Jeroboam) and formed a separate kingdom composed of ten of the twelve tribes. Rechav'am was left with the two tribes of Judah and Benjamin. This state of affairs continued throughout the period of the Kings.
