King Josiah of Judah

Biblical scholarship has tended to focus on the reconstruction of the “authentic” oracles of the prophet Amos and the exilic or postexilic redaction of his book. An analysis of the structure of the book indicates that it is formulated as a polemic against the northern Israelite sanctuary at Beth El, one of the primary targets of Josiah's reform. The concluding call for the restoration of the “fallen booth of David” is a call for the restoration of Davidic rule over northern Israel.

Keywords:   Amos, Beth El, Davidic rule, fallen booth of David, Josiah's reform
