Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the literary evidence in the Hebrew Bible of reconciliation and appeasement between the two parts of the nation, Judah and Israel particularly rom the point of view of the Judean kingdom vis-a-vis the northern faction. In particular, we examine a range of literary documents featuring an idealistic perception of the biblical historiography, according to which the people of Israel were a single nation continuously from the time of the Exodus, the descendants of a common ancestor, which tragically split into two kingdoms after Solomon's death. It is generally accepted that the Assyrians did not entirely eradicate the Israelite population in the north, and the rural population of Samaria and the Galilee remained where it was. The deportation policies, in particular, had a profound impact on the character of the Middle East, particularly by accelerating the process of ethnic and cultural intermixing throughout the region.
