    Close Up of Jehu on the Black Obelisk of Shalmaneser III

    [​IMG]
    [/URL]


    This close up of king Jehu doing homage to Shalmaneser III on The Black Obelisk is one of the most important discoveries in Biblical Archaeology. The panel depicts the Hebrew king Jehu, or possibly one of his servants, bringing gifts to Shalmaneser III and kneeling at his feet.

    "The time that Jehu reigned over Israel in Samaria was twenty-eight years." 2 Kings 10:36

    Detailed Description of the Black Obelisk of Shalmaneser

    Material - Black Limestone Obelisk
    Neo Assyrian
    Date: 858-824 BC
    Height: 197.85 cm (77.8937008 inches)
    Width: 45.08 cm (17.7480315 inches)
    Depth:
    Nimrud (ancient Calah), northern Iraq
    Excavated by: Henry Layard 1845-1849
    Location: British Museum, London


    .....There are five scenes of tribute, each of which occupies four panels round the face of the obelisk and is identified by a line of cuneiform script above the panel. From top to bottom they are:

    Sua of Gilzanu (in north-west Iran)
    Jehu of Bit Omri (ancient northern Israel)
    An unnamed ruler of Musri (probably Egypt)
    Marduk-apil-usur of Suhi (middle Euphrates, Syria and Iraq)
    Qalparunda of Patin (Antakya region of Turkey)

    The second register from the top includes the earliest surviving picture of an Israelite: the Biblical Jehu, king of Israel, brought or sent his tribute in around 841 BC. Ahab, son of Omri, king of Israel, had lost his life in battle a few years previously, fighting against the king of Damascus at Ramoth-Gilead (I Kings xxii. 29-36). His second son (Joram) was succeeded by Jehu, a usurper, who broke the alliances with Phoenicia and Judah, and submitted to Assyria. The caption above the scene, written in Assyrian cuneiform, can be translated

    The tribute of Jehu, son of Omri: I received from him silver, gold, a golden bowl, a golden vase with pointed bottom, golden tumblers, golden buckets, tin, a staff for a king [and] spears.

    "Amazed," Sister?

    Please do not think that I am "amazed" that thousands upon thousands of relics of our histories, heritages and ancestries are in museums across the globe, including the U.S. --- The British museum doesn't have a monopoly on being a repository of the obvious evidence of all the plundering and thieving the White man has done in our homelands......And let us not forget the untold unknown number of African relics that are (to this day) in the hands of private owners, passed down through their generations, secreted in their homes and estates that have never been seen by the public.

    No. I am not "amazed."

    My interest in this artifact and others like it is biblical.

    Here's some more. >>>>

    The Taylor Prism and Sennacherib Prism are clay prisms inscribed with the same text, the annals of the Assyrian king Sennacherib notable for describing his siege of Jerusalem in 701 BC during the reign of king Hezekiah. This event is recorded in several books contained in Bible including Isaiah chapters 33 and 36; 2 Kings 18:17; 2 Chronicles 32:9. This event is also recorded by Herodotus.

    The Sennacherib Prism is in the Oriental Institute of Chicago; the Taylor Prism is in the British Museum. Another Sennacherib Prism is in the Israel Museum in Jerusalem.
