Josiah and the Repentance of his Nation   $5.00

The news of the victory and the extraordinary events that accompanied it reached all the way to Babylon, whose king sent a special delegation to Hezekiah. Hezekiah treated the delegation royally, making a great impression upon them. He was taken to task by the prophet Isaiah, however, for showing such great respect to those pagans as well as for making them privy to his great wealth and power, causing them to covet his kingdom and plan its conquest. Isaiah then foretold Hezekiah that, as a result, his country would eventually be conquered by them and his descendants would be led into exile. The heights reached under Hezekiah were soon forgotten as Judah reverted back into being a pagan state under the auspices of his son Manasseh. Although Manasseh eventually repented of his ways, his son, Amon, reintroduced idolatry into Judah as the state religion. After ruling for only two years, Amon was assassinated by his servants. They were in turn killed by Amonís followers, who placed his eight year old son, Josiah, on the throne. Josiah, upon reaching adulthood, reversed the corruption introduced by his father and inspired the people to reach new heights. Josiah came to an untimely death, however, at the hands of the Egyptians, who defeated him in battle. These stories are the subjects of this lecture.
