Example text

A Peaceful King Solomon is described in the Bible as a peaceful king, and this may well have been the case. There are no known clashes, military or otherwise, during his reign. The achievements credited to him lie mostly in the religious, economic, 32 and cultural spheres. He completed the Temple at Jerusalem, erected buildings in other cities, and made trade alliances and economic treaties with neighboring countries. He might not have been as vigorous or creative as David, but he did piece together the empire.

He also annexed Megiddo and the Jezreel Valley. He was probably trying to take Judah back to the greatness of the United Monarchy three hundred years earlier. Unfortunately, Josiah ran up against the Egyptians. A Period of Tremendous Turbulence For many who study ancient history and religion, the meeting of Josiah and Pharaoh Necho II is considered the most significant of the battles that took place in the Jezreel Valley. The battle is related in 2 Kings, 2 Chronicles, and the recounting by Josephus.

The city of Samaria was built by Omri and became the capital city of the North. When the site of Samaria was first excavated in 1908 by Harvard University, the splendor of Omri’s buildings was revealed. The site was further explored in the 1930s, at which time additional evidence for the spectacular nature of the ancient city was found. Even today, the site of Samaria is in a rich agricultural region, and there are numerous buildings and other architectural remains at which the modern tourist can marvel.
