Understanding Hezekiah of Judah

Rebel King and Reformer
  • By Mordechai Cogan

Understanding Hezekiah of Judah: Rebel King and Reformer is a thought-provoking exposition of the political and religious developments in the kingdom of Judah during the reign of King Hezekiah, based on a close reading of biblical and extra-biblical sources and the insights from associated archaeological finds. Among the major discussions are: Hezekiah's reform of the Israelite cult--the elimination of rural altars and the centralization of all worship in the Temple of Jerusalem, the introduction of literary prophecy and its social message into Judah, and Jerusalem's deliverance during the Assyrian campaign against Judah in 701 BCE. Understanding Hezekiah of Judah: Rebel King and Reformer shows that the Age of Hezekiah was a key stage in the growth and transformation of Jerusalem into the Holy City we know today.

Understanding Hezekiah of Judah: Rebel King and Reformer contains full quotation of ancient texts, as well as numerous maps and illuminating illustrations.
