2 Kings 25

2 Kings
2 KingsSteve Gregg

In this historical account, Steve Gregg wraps up the history of Judah prior to the Babylonian exile. The destruction of Jerusalem is described, and the famine becomes so severe that people resort to burning their own homes for fuel. The Babylonians capture and bring King Jehoiachin to Ribla, while Gedaliah is made governor of Mizpah instead of Jerusalem, which was too destroyed to serve as the capital city. Later, King Meridok of Babylon released Jehoiachin from prison, and even gave a budget to rebuild the temple.
