Assyrian match dating

Firstly due to Merodach-baladan being in power as king of Babylon, secondly the promise to save Jerusalem prophesied (Isaiah 38:6) to Hezekiah and thirdly due to the quantity of Hezekiahs treasure at the time indicating that Sennacherib had not yet taken it from him (Gallagher p144 note 5).The promise of deliverance would more logically follow the oppression already experienced including the capturing of many cities in Judah, and Hezekiahs payment of heavy tribute, than to have come before.

However direct proof for such is lacking, just as it is for the claim of a co-regency between Hezekiah and Ahaz.Additionally at this point in time (712/13 BC according to the Biblical text) the king of Assyria (albeit Sargon II and not Sennacherib) was having trouble with the Babylonians and would have gladly settled the problems with Hezekiah by receiving financial tribute.These brief verses fit perfectly with the Assyrian account, whereas the rest of the Kings account through Sennacheribs death in has no parallel in the Assyrian account, with the possible exception of the reliance upon Egypt in 2However the fact that the messengers were sent with a letter (Isaiah ) seems to indicate that the high officials that the king of Assyria had previously sent were not used, but rather a long distance communication may be indicated.This shall be a sign to you: You shall eat this year such as grows of itself, And in the second year what springs from the same; Also in the third year sow and reap, Plant vineyards and eat the fruit of them Assuming that was the understanding the Jews of Hezekiahs time had of their own history, regardless of its accuracy (which is debated by some scholars), they would have considered 702 BC as a Jubilee year and 703 as a sabbatical year.The problem with the idea that the bible describes two invasions is that while this might be possible in the account in Kings, the other records (Isaiah and Chronicles) seem to make the two events into one.
