Philadelphia: The Westminster Press, 1986. ) Ancient Israel: From Abraham to the Roman Destruction of the Temple (chapter 5: “The Divided Monarchy: The Kingdoms of Judah and Israel”). udah rose to great prominence in the seventh century BCE, after Israel was destroyed by the Neo-Assyrians. Unfortunately for Judah, it would come to an end not much more than a century later. Nebuchadnezzar and the NeoBabylonians destroyed Jerusalem not once, but twice, burning the Temple to the ground and exiling the leading citizens to the faraway city of Babylon.

Wealth began to accumulate in Judah, especially in Jerusalem, where the kingdom’s diplomatic and economic policies were determined. Jerusalem became the administrative and religious capital of a powerful kingdom. In the final years of the eighth century BCE, Judah saw a chance to break free from the Neo-Assyrian grip. The powerful king Sargon II died, leaving his throne to a young, untested son named Sennacherib. The Neo-Assyrian empire was preoccupied with troubles to the east, so the king of Jerusalem, Hezekiah, thought it was a good time to rebel, and tried to play the two great empires of the day (Egypt to the south and Assyria to the north) off against each other—with little success.

Ancient Israel: From Abraham to the Roman Destruction of the Temple (chapter 5: “The Divided Monarchy: The Kingdoms of Judah and Israel”). ollowing the death of King Solomon, the United Monarchy dissolved and split into the Divided Kingdoms of Israel in the north and Judah in the south. The Omride dynasty was the most infamous family to rule Israel, especially in the view of the biblical writers, but then the expansionist ambitions of the Neo-Assyrians from Mesopotamia in the eighth century BCE spelled an end to the Kingdom of Israel and gave rise to the tradition of the Ten Lost Tribes.
