Volume 10 , Issue 2 Winter Pages Related Information. Email or Customer ID. As the map indicates, Canaan was occupied by Egypt at that time, a fact which the Bible fails to register. The Bible Unearthed begins by considering what it terms the 'preamble' of the Bible—the Book of Genesis —and its relationship to archaeological evidence for the context in which its narratives are set.
Archaeological discoveries about society and culture in the ancient Near East lead the authors to point out a number of anachronisms, suggestive that the narratives were actually set down in the 9th—7th centuries:  Aramaeans are frequently mentioned, but no ancient text mentions them until around BCE, and they only begin to dominate Israel's northern borders after the 9th century BCE.
This is seen as evidence that the stories of Abraham , Joseph , Jacob and Esau were written after this time. Although the Hyksos are in some ways a good match, their main centre being at Avaris later renamed 'Pi-Ramesses' , in the heart of the region corresponding to the 'land of Goshen', and Manetho later writing that the Hyksos eventually founded the Temple in Jerusalem ,  it throws up other problems, as the Hyksos became not slaves but rulers, and they were chased away rather than chased to bring them back.
Finkelstein and Silberman view this account as the result of the telescoping effect of the vagaries of folk memory about destruction caused by other events;  modern archaeological examination of these cities shows that their destruction spanned a period of many centuries, with Hazor being destroyed to years after Jericho,  [ citation needed ] while Ai whose name actually means 'the ruin' was completely abandoned for roughly a millennium "before the collapse of Late Bronze Canaan.
Like Jericho, there was no settlement at the time of its supposed conquest by the children of Israel. Archaeology instead shows that in the time of Solomon, the northern kingdom of Israel was quite small, too poor to be able to pay for a vast army, and with too little bureaucracy to be able to administer a kingdom, certainly not an empire;  it only emerged later, around the beginning of the 9th century BCE, in the time of Omri.
Judah was flooded with refugees; the population of Israel had been nine times larger than that of Judah, so many small Judean villages suddenly became cities,  archaeology evidencing that the population of Jerusalem itself expanded by about fold, turning it from a small hilltown into a large city.
By BCE, the Assyrians had captured most of Judah, and then they besieged Jerusalem ; the Bible's coverage of the events leading up to the siege is sparse, briefly listing only a few refortifications of Jerusalem, giving a passing mention to the Siloam tunnel , and briefly admitting to the loss of most of Judah's cities, but archaeology gives much more detail.
For example, the fortifications of Lachish were heavily strengthened by Hezekiah,  but it was besieged, fell, and was then burnt to the ground; according to an illustration on the walls of the Assyrian palace at Ninevah , the Assyrians deported the city's population and religious objects before they burnt it. However, as The Bible Unearthed points out, this contrasts with the Assyrian record on the Taylor Prism ,  in which Hezekiah's mercenaries abandoned him, and he only then convinced the Assyrian army to leave by handing over not only vast amounts of money, jewels, and high quality ivory-inlaid furniture, but also his own daughters, harem, and musicians, and making Judah into a tributary state of the Assyrians.
Hezekiah predeceased Sennacherib, dying just a couple of years after the siege. His successor and son , Manasseh , reversed the religious changes, re-introducing religious pluralism; Finkelstein and Silberman suggest that this may have been an attempt to gain co-operation from village elders and clans, so that he would not need so much centralised administration, and could therefore allow the countryside to return to economic autonomy.
