      Dear Doug,

      Thank you for refocusing the thread. In fact my original request (not that I don't appreciate the references) was whether there was a consensus about the historicity of the complete and total deportation of the northern kingdom. I am somewhat stuck between the view of of Richard Horsley, who proposes that Galilee of the first century CE should be understood in the context of an Israelite religion, versus Sean Freyne who accepts the complete deportation and understands Galilee in the context of Judaic religion exported under the Hasmoneans. Horsley, as I recall it, suggests that only the elites were deported and a complete deportation was unrealistic in the context of military campaign. Freyne points to archaeological evidence for lack of a population, but the archaeology, as I understand it, relies on surface surveys and is therefore inconclusive.

      Am I talking nonsense here? (It's been a while since I read either.)

      Dear All,

      Listers have yet to address the heart of Daniel's question, which is the
      invasion under Shalmaneser V. While not attempting to address his question
      as this point, I would point out that while Shalmaneser V would be the
      Assyrian king to have invaded, Sargon II would be the one to have deported

      So for Daniel's sake, perhaps we can stray away from the Babylonian
      invasion(s) of the southern kingdom, and move back into the realm of the
      Assyrian invasion of the "northern" kingdom.
