Facebook description for King Zedekiah

Zedekiah

Status: Married. Probably to an Egyptian debutante. (Besides the numerous concubines, of course who aren’t listed in his facebook page)

Education: Jerusalem Academy for Kings. Charter school for wealthy blue bloods. Sports: Chariot races. In fact, the school’s mascot was a chariot and the team name was “The Charioteers”.

Studied: The arts, languages, history, math, and things that kings study.

Lived in: Jerusalem. Born @618BC.

Activities and interests: Most likely worshipping other gods, doing whatever he wanted to as a spoiled rich king with power like excessive drinking, riding horses, chariot races, partying and revelry.

Occupation: King for about 10 years, beginning at age twenty one. He succeeded his nephew, Jeconiah, who was overthrown as king after a reign of only three months and ten days. Basically Zedekiah seems to be a puppet king installed by King Nebuchadnezzar II of Babylon. Died @587.

Photo: Eyes poked out by King Nebuchadnezzar II of Babylon. Zedekiah revolted against Babylon, and entered into an alliance with Pharaoh Hophra of Egypt. Nebuchadnezzar began a siege of Jerusalem in January of 589 BC. During this siege, which lasted about thirty months, “every worst woe befell the city, which drank the cup of God’s fury to the dregs”.

Friends: Lots of Egyptians. Maybe a few family friends in Jerusalem or from those who ingratiated themselves to him in hopes of finding favor from a king.

He was a probably a facebook friend of Jeremiah, the prophet of the jews, but later “de-friended” because he ignored Jeremiah’s advise and counsel and continued to quote “do evil in the sight of the Lord”.
