... But Not Jerusalem

'Just Stories?' #15

What's in the series?      Previous: The Siege of Lachish...       Next: A Bird in a Cage

The Assyrian king Sennacherib recorded his siege of Lachish on a frieze which is now on display in the British Museum. Why did he choose to record the siege of Lachish, which was a relatively unimportant city? 

Sennacherib’s campaign is recorded in the Bible, in 2 Kings 18-19.   As his army moved on from conquering Lachish and headed for Jerusalem, his forces were supernaturally destroyed by God.

So Sennacherib has nothing to say about Jerusalem. He is not about to admit that something went wrong with his campaign. He immortalises his victory at Lachish, rather than his failure to take Jerusalem.

With Ian Cooper, pastor of Tollgate Evangelical Church in Reigate, UK.

‘Astronomy leads us to a unique event, a universe which was created out of nothing, and delicately balanced to provide exactly the conditions required to support life. In the absence of an absurdly improbable accident, the observations of modern science seem to suggest an underlying, one might say, supernatural plan.’
- Nobel Prize-winning scientist Arno Penzias
