Who wrote the material about Jehu in the Bible, when and why did they write it, and how reliable is it? After a thorough text and literary critical examination of 2 Kings 9-10, this work demonstrates the plausibility of an 8th century origin for the Jehu narrative, which did not exist as an isolated literary tradition, but represented a part of a larger story of Israel's monarchic history. Ultimately, this book offers a new redaction-historical evaluation of Kings and a historical reconstruction of the events behind the Jehu narrative based on biblical and extrabiblical literature.
