History 6, Review Lesson 12 – The Fall of Jerusalem

Jerusalem, like every other city must come to an end eventually. In this essay, I’m going to talk about the fall of Judah.

Jerusalem got completely destroyed my Nebuchadnezzar in 586 BC, they were overthrown by the Babylonians. After Josiah there were 4 other kings. Jehoiakim, son of Jehoahaz, and grandson of Josiah, was the king when Jerusalem fell. Before the fall of Jersalem the Babylonians captured Judah, and Jerusalem had to pay tribute to the Babylonians. One day when the tribute was required Jehoiakim refused to pay. Nebuchadnezzar besieged Jerusalem, destroyed it’s walls, burned down all the temples, stole all the treasures, and took all of the civilians as prisoners.

70 years after the fall of Jerusalem the civilians were finally released and allowed to rebuild Jerusalem.
