Materials: Have a two team game prepared with different sets of rules
Pick a game that involves two teams, any game it doesn’t matter! Give each team a different set of rules for the game. Do not tell the teams that they have different rules for the game.

Tell the other team that they are free to hide the flag wherever they want. Tell one team they can guard jail tell the other team they cannot. Tell one team they need to be tagged to escape from jail, the other does not. Tell one team they must tag the opposing team to send them to jail. Tell the other team the must carry the player from the opposing team to jail. You don’t necessarily have to play capture the flag, it really doesn’t matter the game.

Did you feel like you were playing a game together, for a common goal? (having fun)
If having two separate sets of rules in one game was hard, can you imagine two sets of rules and two different leaders in one nation?
Do you think the split in

various kings rule over both (none were particularly great)
Hezekiah rules over
he backs out to fight another nation
Isaiah prophecizes his return and defeat
when his armies return they are smote by an angel of G_d
Hezekiah develops a water supply for
Menasseh, king of
