Description: Experts from a variety of disciplines examine the history of Judah during the seventh century BCE, the last century of the kingdomís existence. This important era is well defined historically and archaeologically beginning with the destruction left behind by the Assyrian campaign of Sennacherib (701 BCE) and ending with levels of destruction resulting from Nebuchadnezzarís Babylonian campaign (588Ė586 BCE). Eleven essays develop the ongoing discussion about Judah during this period and extend the debate to include further important insights in the fields of archaeology, history, cult, and the interpretation of Old Testament texts.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Historical Books, 1-2 Kings, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History, History of Israel, Archaeology
