A new 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 of associated archaeological finds.

Among the major discussions:

  • 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;
  • Jerusalem’s deliverance during the Assyrian campaign against Judah in 701 bce.

Indeed, the Age of Hezekiah proves to have been a key stage in the growth and transformation of Jerusalem into the Holy City.
