Kings of Judah and Israel.pdf
The Chronicles of the Kings of Israel is a book that gives a more detailed account of the reigns of the kings of ancient Kingdom of Israel than that presented in the Hebrew Bible , and may have been the source from which parts of the biblical account were drawn. The book was likely compiled by or derived from the kings of Israel's own scribes, and is likely the source for the basic facts presented in the Bible. The book is referred to a number of times in the Hebrew Bible, but was either not included in the corpus of the biblical text or was removed from it at some stage. The book is counted as one of the Lost books of the Old Testament. A complementary book detailing the reigns of the kings of ancient Judah is the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah , a book which has also been lost.
Despite considerable scholarly efforts for many years, the last two decades of the Kingdom of Israel are still beneath the veil of history. Who conquered Samaria, the capital of the Kingdom? When did it happen? One of the primary reasons for this situation lies in the discrepancies found in the historical sources, namely the Hebrew Bible and the Assyrian texts. Since biblical studies and Assyriology are two distinct disciplines, the gaps in the sources are not easy to bridge. Moreover, recent great progress in the archaeological research in the Southern Levant provides now crucial new data, independent of these textual sources. This volume, a collection of papers by leading scholars from different fields of research, aims to bring together, for the first time, all the available data and to discuss these conundrums from various perspectives in order to reach a better and deeper understanding of this crucial period, which possibly triggered in the following decades the birth of "new Israel" in the Southern Kingdom of Judah, and eventually led to the formation of the Hebrew Bible and its underlying theology.

However, one should ask whether the author of Kings presented the destruction of Jerusalem as a final end or as a new beginning?
They were expected to observe his covenant and laws, to defend the nation and engage in offensive war when deemed necessary, and to rule the people with justice mishpat and righteousness tsedaqah. Although they were granted wide powers to carry out these tasks, the ancients believed that the kings would suffer divine punishment if they violated the covenant and laws. Biblical authors claim that the kings of Israel and Judah were divinely chosen and that they were expected to abide by the covenant see, for example, Deut , 1Sam , 1Kgs Since Yhwh was in charge, he was responsible for protecting the king of Israel from threats by enemies 2Sam 7 , Ps 2 and for punishing him and even removing him if he did not fulfill divine expectations 1Sam , 2Sam 7 , 1Kgs Ps 72 calls upon G-d to grant the king divine justice and righteousness so that he might rule the people properly, and Isa calls upon the king to rule in righteousness so that his officers will govern with justice see Isa , Isa
The historian of Kings refers to these works as his source, where additional information may be found. These references show how the historian of Kings used extensive sources selectively. The Israelite annals are mentioned 18 times I Kings 17 ; ; ; et al. Of all the kings of Israel, only Jehoram and Hosea are not mentioned as referred to in the Israelite annals.
