JERUSALEM – On April 18, Haaretz ran a piece entitled “How Mice May Have Saved Jerusalem 2,700 years Ago From the Terrifying Assyrians,” which looked into the historicity of the Biblical account of King Hezekiah. As noted in the article, the fact that the Assyrian army turned around and let Hezekiah go indicates something highly out of the ordinary took place. On today’s program, host Brent Nagtegaal, looks at the possible scenarios that sent the Assyrians packing.
