King Jehu's Tribute

'Just Stories?' #09

What's in the series?      Previous: Kings of Assyria and Israel      Next: King Sargon of Assyria

In 1846 Henry Austin Layard discovered a beautiful black obelisk in Nimrud (modern Iraq). This obelisk dates to around 825 BC - the time of king Shalmaneser III of the Assyrians. There is a reference to the Israelite king Jehu inscribed on it. The Assyrians were enemies of the Israelites, and the obelisk shows the Israelites paying tribute to Shalmaneser. This inscription is a confirmation from the archaeological record that Jehu was a real historical person. (See 2 Kings chapters 9 and 10 in the Bible).
