Ancient Jewish History: The Two Kingdoms
The experiment with the opulence and power of the great eastern kingdoms had ended in disaster for Israel. King Solomon created the wealthiest and most powerful central government the Hebrews would ever see, but he did so at an impossibly high cost. Land was given away to pay for his extravagances and people were sent into forced labor into Tyre in the north. When Solomon died, between and BCE, the ten northern tribes refused to submit to his son, Rehoboam , and revolted. From this point on, there would be two kingdoms of Hebrews: in the north - Israel , and in the south - Judah. The Israelites formed their capital in the city of Samaria, and the Judaeans kept their capital in Jerusalem.
By: Tammi J. The division continued until the Assyrians, whose empire was expanding during that period, exiled Israel in the late eighth century B. But the goal of the Bible was not to record history, and the text does not shy away from theological explanations for events. Given this problematic relationship between sacred interpretation and historical accuracy, historians welcomed the discovery of ancient Assyrian cuneiform documents that refer to people and places mentioned in the Bible. Thus, Jehu, the next Israelite king to whom the Assyrians refer, appears in the same order as described in the Bible. But he is identified as ruling a place with a different geographic name, Bit Omri the house of Omri.
The first attestation of the name outside the Bible on the Egyptian stela of Merneptah, c. It then served for at least two different monarchies and later again as a social or religious title for the people who inhabited the Achaemenid Persian province of Yehud. The value of the biblical written records varies considerably with regard to historical content, and this must further be evaluated on the basis of internal literary analysis and in the light of evidence that comes from archaeological research, including in particular from epigraphic sources both from Israel itself and from many near and more distant nations. How to combine these differing forms of evidence has been the topic of lively and sometimes rancorous debate, which varies in its detail from one period to another, often depending on the extent to which external sources are immediately available. Solutions are not always available, but exploration into the nature of these problems and misunderstandings in the application of appropriate methods reveal where the problems lie and, in some cases, what are plausible solutions.
You dig the soil and you find pottery from Davidic times, coins from Bar Kokhba, and 2,year-old scrolls written in a script remarkably like the one that today advertises ice cream at the corner candy store. The people of Israel also called the "Jewish People" trace their origin to Abraham, who established the belief that there is only one God, the creator of the universe see Torah. Abraham, his son Yitshak Isaac , and grandson Jacob Israel are referred to as the patriarchs of the Israelites. All three patriarchs lived in the Land of Canaan, which later came to be known as the Land of Israel. The name Israel derives from the name given to Jacob Genesis His 12 sons were the kernels of 12 tribes that later developed into the Jewish nation. So, the names Israel, Israeli or Jewish refer to people of the same origin.

Ancient Israel the United and Divided Kingdom. Along with the reemergence of Iron Age hierarchies and complex societies came the restoration of literacy and recursive institutions throughout the Near East.

When this provocative text was first published, Lemche presented a new model of how we should understand Israelite society, its history and its religion. Lemche argues first that 'Israel' was the result of a social development among the Canaanite population of Palestine in the second half of the second millennium BCE. This implies that Israelite religion was originally 'Canaanite' and that what we think of as typically 'Jewish' religion did not arise until c. Lemche's radical reassessment of Israelite history is based on the conviction that the Old Testament contains hardly any historical sources older than the seventh century BCE.

Не нужно было так резко с ней говорить. Но у него не выдержали нервы. Он слишком долго говорил ей полуправду: просто есть вещи, о которых она ничего не знала, и он молил Бога, чтобы не узнала. - Прости меня, - сказал он, стараясь говорить как можно мягче. - Расскажи, что с тобой случилось.
