But as this battle is described by many historians, and Xenophon in particular as good as shows it us by eyesight, not as a past event, but as a present action, and by his vivid account makes his hearers feel all the passions and join in all the dangers of it, it would be folly in me to give any larger account of it than barely to mention any things omitted by him which yet deserve to be recorded. But Cyrus, who was in the thick enemy, was carried off a great way by the wildness of his horse, the darkness which was now coming on making it hard for them to know him, and for his followers to find him. How could Daniel, writing in B. So at last he resolved to fight, as soon as it was possible for him. Thus then he did: he charged the eunuch constantly to attend and accompany the conspirators wherever they were; in the meanwhile, he broke down the party-wall of the chamber behind his bed, and placed a door in it to open and shut, which he covered up with tapestry; so the hour approaching, and the eunuch having told him the precise time in which the traitors designed to assassinate him, he waited for them in his bed, and rose not up till he had seen the faces of his assailants and recognized every man of them.

No other name resembling Ahasuerus, nor any name like Darius, is to be found in the list of Median kings. The stone columns were brought from Elam. Thereupon, the court was all in an uproar and tumult, the queen-mother bearing almost the whole blame of the enterprise, and her retainers being suspected and accused. A number of such double-dated tablets have been discovered.

Darius, in demanding her, no doubt much offended his father, for the barbarian people keep a very jealous and watchful eye over their carnal pleasures, so that it is death for a man not only to come near and touch any concubine of his prince, but likewise on a journey to ride forward and pass by the carriages in which they are conveyed. Daniel "Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and sixty-two weeks; the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublesome times. But the queen mother, being in the king's presence, said, "Let not the king so lightly discharge this pernicious Carian; let him receive from me the fitting punishment of what he dares to say. But at last he came, and so did his son, bringing the Cadusian agents along with them, and so there was a cessation of arms and a peace signed with both the princes. How could Daniel, writing in B.

Artaxerxes book

The king, on hearing what kind of death he died, heartily lamented him, and was not without a suspicion of the cause of it. This Vishtaspa did have some ruling authority under Cyrus, as well as alongside his son Darius who was the father of Xerxes.

Therefore Astyages is one of the possible candidates for King Ahasuerus mentioned in Esther. The reason of the confusion of the names by the Septuagint and Josephus will probably remain forever a mystery. Laborers at the columned hall. And the interesting thing about his name is that it sounds very Artaxerxes book to Vashti, the disobedient queen mentioned in the book of Esther.

And they said unto me, The remnant that are left of the captivity there in the province are in great affliction and reproach: the wall of Jerusalem also is broken down, and the gates thereof are burned with fire. And going in all haste to Artaxerxes, who had now given up all hope of his affairs, and was in great suffering also with his thirst and his wound, he with much joy assured him that he had seen Cyrus dead.

The silver and the ebony were brought from Egypt. Nubians Ethiopia. As shown by the ancient Greek historians, the months following upon the death of Artaxerxes was a chaotic period. But the great number of soldiers who were hired from all quarters and maintained, as Xenophon informs us, for his service, by his friends and connections, is in itself a sufficient proof of his riches.

Notwithstanding, she prevailed not with Darius, but the eldest son, Arsicas, was proclaimed king, his name being changed into Artaxerxes; and Cyrus remained satrap of Lydia, and commander in the maritime provinces.

Cyrus took his name of the ancient Cyrus, as he, they say, had his from the sun, which, in the Persian language, is called Cyrus.

ARTAXERXES I. (surnamed Longimanus

BE 10 no. And therefore proceeding instantly to an inquest, he seized upon his mother's domestic servants that attended at her table and put them upon the rack. This indirectly caused the Athenians to move the treasury of the Delian League from the island Artaxerxes book Delos to the Athenian acropolis.

Remarkably, according to Robert Anderson and the British Royal Observatory, the Sunday before that Passover was April 6th-The very day that Jesus presents himself as King and exactlydays after the decree of Artaxerxes!!

Following the failure of Pharnabazus II in Egypt, Datames had been entrusted by the Persian king with the chief command of a force designed for the recovery of Egyptbut the machinations of his enemies at the Persian court, and the risks to which he was in consequence exposed, induced him to change his plan, and throw off his allegiance to the king.

And then he seemed a moderate and gracious governor, more especially as compared to his son Ochus, who outdid all his predecessors in blood-thirstiness and cruelty. Aspasia, therefore, being sent for, and, contrary to the king's expectation, making choice of Darius, he gave him her indeed, being constrained by law, but when he had done so, a little after he took her from him.Josephus wrongfully claims that the Ahasuerus (Xerxes) of the Book of Esther is this Artaxerxes I., and also that the Artaxerxes of Ezra and Nehemiah is Xerxes.

His Character.

Artaxerxes II of Persia

Artaxerxes was the second son of Xerxes, who was murdered in the summer of by his all-powerful vizir Artaban. The Decree of Artaxerxes (Ezra 7) December 16 We return now to the book of Ezra. The events of Ezra 6 occurred during the reign of Darius the Great.

Chapter 7 jumps forward to the reign of his grandson Artaxerxes I, also known as Longimanus ( B.C.). Nov 22,  · Ahasuerus/Artaxerxes. The Book of Esther presents us with a Great King who is variously called “Ahasuerus” and “Artaxerxes”.

And this is good enough for me. I have identified him as both “Darius the Mede” and Cyrus: Is the Book of Esther a Real History? Part Three: “King Ahasuerus”.

Artaxerxes I of Persia

King Artaxerxes granted his wish on the spot and gave him official "letters" or documents for easy passage. This occurred, we are told in the month of Nisan, in the twentieth year of Artaxerxes Longimanus' reign. Artaxerxes Longimanus ascended to the throne of the Medo-Persian empire in July B.C.

(Encyclopedia Britannica, ed.). The same problem exists with Egyptology. Mauro and Anstey believe it is possible that the Artaxerxes of Ezraforward to the end of Nehemiah, is both the Longimanus (a later king than the Artaxerxes of Ezra and referred to as Longimanus in secular history) and the Darius of Ezra Sep 27,  · Today I want to start with the book of Esther.

The book itself was written between and B.C. making it one of the last Old Testament books written. It was written either at the end of Xerxes reign or during the reign of his son Artaxerxes who ruled from to B.C. .
