How did the Kushite pharaohs of Egypt take on the Assyrian empire? What impact did the Babylonians have on Israel and Judah? How was the powerful Persian empire stopped in its tracks?
This is the story of invasion and conquest, rebellion and survival in Egypt and the Near East, leading to the end of the native Egyptian pharaohs, the sacking of Thebes, the destruction of Jerusalem and the loss of Israel’s national independence.
Join us this Saturday (22nd May) 9:30am to 4:30pm to discover the changes brought about over this tumultuous period of 400 years!
