The new king, Egypt’s vassal ruler, undid Josiah’s changes, restoring the former shrines and returning the country once again to religious pluralism.

Judah was flooded with refugees; the population of Biboia had been nine times larger than that of Judah, so many small Judean villages suddenly became cities,  archaeology evidencing that the population of Jerusalem itself expanded by dessenterrada fold, turning it from a small hilltown into a large city. A review of the book by fellow archeologist William G. Stories of exodus from oppression and conquest of land, stories of exile and return and stories of triumphal vision are eerily contemporary.
There are remains of once grand cities at MegiddoHazor and Gezerwith archeological evidence showing that they suffered violent destruction. Israel Finkelstein and Neil Asher Silberman.
For example, the fortifications of Lachish were heavily strengthened by Hezekiah,  but it was desenetrrada, fell, and was then burnt to the ground; according to an illustration on the walls of the Assyrian palace at Ninevahthe Assyrians deported the city’s population and religious objects before they burnt it.
Archaeology suggests that Josiah was initially successful, extending his territory northwards towards Bethela cult-centre of the kingdom of Israel;  however he then rode out to meet the Egyptian Pharaoh— Necho —at Meggido.
The authors take issue with the book of Joshua ‘s depiction of the Israelites conquering Canaan in only a few years—far less than the lifetime of one individual—in which cities such as HazorAiand Jerichoare destroyed.
Judah, as a loyal Egyptian vassal-state, resisted, with disastrous consequences: In juxtaposing the biblical record and archaeological data, they work with tantalizing fragments of a distant past. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Dever published in the Biblical Archaeology Review and subsequently in the Bulletin of the American Schools of Oriental Researchresulted in heated exchanges between Dever and Finkelstein. The book remarks that, despite modern archaeological investigations bjblia the meticulous ancient Egyptian records from the period of Ramesses IIthere is an obvious lack of any archaeological evidence for the migration of a band of semitic people across the Sinai Peninsula except for the Hyksos.
Thus al book desenterrada ideologically driven and controlled. The Book of Kings, as it stands today, seems to suggest that the religion of Israel and Judah was primarily monotheistic, with one or two wayward kings such as the Omrides who tried to introduce Canaanite polytheism, the people occasionally joining in this ‘apostasy’ from monotheism, but a close reading and the archaeological record reveals that the opposite was true.
Views Read Edit View history. Finkelstein and Silberman suggest that Necho may have objected to Josiah’s expansionist policies, which could have threatened the Egyptian dominance of the desenterraca to the west of Judah the Philistine lands or of the strategically important Jezreel Valley to its north, or could equally have objected to the effect of the new deuteronomic social policies on the caravan routes, which ran through southern Judah.
Necho had been merely ‘passing through’, bbilia an army to join the Assyrian civil war on the side of the Bibliz rather than Babylonian faction,  but Josiah was killed; the circumstances of his death are uncertain, though the Book of Chronicles claims that despite Necho’s lack of enmity for Josiah, Josiah insisted on attacking him. What actually happened and what a people thought happened belong to a single historical process.

But when the Babylonian faction eventually won the Assyrian civil war, they set out to forcibly retake the former Assyrian tributaries. The Tel Dan Stelethe Mesha Stelethe Black Obelisk of Shalmaneserand direct evidence bilbia excavations, together paint a picture of the Omride kings ruling a rich, powerful, and cosmopolitan empire, stretching from Damascus to Moab and building some of the largest and most beautiful constructions of Iron Age Israel;  by contrast, the Bible only remarks that the Omrides ‘married foreign women’ presumably to make alliances and upheld Canaanite religion, both of which it regards as wicked.
The Bible Unearthed begins by considering what it terms the ‘preamble’ of the Bible—the Book of Genesis —and its relationship to archaeological evidence for the context in which its narratives are set.
This article’s lead section does not adequately summarize key points of its contents. Archaeological discoveries about society and culture in the ancient Near East lead the authors to point out a number of anachronisms, suggestive that the narratives were actually set down in the 9th—7th centuries: Finkelstein and Silberman view this account as the result of the telescoping effect of the vagaries of folk memory about destruction caused by other events;  modern archaeological examination of these cities shows that their destruction spanned a period of many centuries, with Hazor being destroyed to years after Jericho,  [ citation needed ] while Ai whose name actually means ‘the ruin’ was completely abandoned for roughly a millennium “before the collapse of Late Bronze Canaan.
Although the book of Samueland initial parts of the books of Kingsportray SaulDavid and Solomon ruling in succession over a powerful and cosmopolitan united kingdom of Israel and JudahFinkelstein and Silberman regard modern archaeological evidence as showing that this may not be true.
The Bible Unearthed was well received by some biblical scholars and archaeologists and critically by others. Archaeology instead shows that in the time of Solomon, the northern kingdom of Israel was quite small, too poor to be able to pay for a vast army, and with too little bureaucracy to be able to administer a kingdom, certainly not an empire;  it only emerged later, around the beginning of the 9th century BCE, in the time of Omri.
Early biblical archaeology was conducted with the presumption that the Bible must be true, finds only being considered as illustrations for the biblical narrative, and interpreting evidence to fit the Bible.

Imagination invariably exceeds the evidence; research makes plausible the reconstruction. Finkelstein and Silberman argue that the Deuteronomic law advanced by parts of the deported elite the ancestors of the returnees and the laws and legends of the inveterate inhabitants, were melded together into a single Torah so that it could form a central authority biblua to unite the population.
Review of The Bible Unearthed: Baruch Halpernprofessor of Jewish Studies at Pennsylvania State University and leader of the archaeological digs at Megiddo for many years, praised it as “the boldest and most exhilarating synthesis of Bible and archaeology in fifty years”,  and Jonathan Kirschwriting in the Los Angeles Timescalled it “a brutally honest assessment of what archeology can and cannot tell us about the historical accuracy of the Bible”, which embraces the spirit of modern archaeology by approaching the Bible “as an artifact to be studied and evaluated rather than a work of divine inspiration that must be embraced as a matter of true belief”.
His successor and sonManassehreversed the religious changes, re-introducing religious pluralism; Finkelstein and Silberman suggest that this may have been an attempt to gain co-operation from village elders and clans, so that he would not need so much centralised administration, and could therefore allow the countryside to return to economic autonomy. Ze’ev Herzogprofessor of archaeology at Tel Aviv Universitywrote a cover story for Haaretz in in which he reached similar conclusions following the same methodology; Herzog noted also that some of these findings have been accepted by the majority of biblical scholars and archaeologists for years and even decades, even though they have only recently begun to make a dent in the awareness ibblia the general public.
Writing in the website of “The Bible and Interpretation”, the authors describe their approach as one “in which the Bible is one of the most important artifacts and cultural achievements [but] not the unquestioned narrative framework into which every archaeological find must be lx.
Retrieved 16 February That understanding leads to a sobering thought. Kenneth Kitchen was critical, writing that “[A] careful critical perusal of this work—which certainly has much to say about both archaeology and the biblical writings—reveals that we are dealing very largely with a work of imaginative fiction, not a serious or reliable account of the subject”, and “Their treatment of the exodus is among the most factually ignorant bivlia misleading that this writer has ever read.
