29. Hezekiah and Assyria (2 Kgs 18–19)Series: No King Like David (1–2 Kings)
Hezekiah is one of the most powerful and righteous kings in Judah's history. He is one of the few kings in the book of Kings that receives unqualified praise by the editor. That doesn't mean he doesn't make mistakes, but it does mean that he works through it. His life ruled by his interactions with two empires: Assyria and Babylon. We look at the first, today.
