The Jeroboam narrative occurs in two main forms, one in the Hebrew Bible, 1 Kings 11-14, and the other in the Greek Bible, 3 Kingdoms 12:24a-z. This difference gave rise to a scholarly debate over many decades. In a recent article in the JSJ, Marvin A. Sweeney has proposed a new method in order to settle this old problem. In this present note, his proposal and arguments are evaluated, and it is suggested that Sweeney has not taken into account all aspects which should have been considered, and that some of his arguments may not be entirely convincing.
