King Ahaz - Isaiah 7
King Ahaz ruled Judah for 16 years, from approximately 743 to 727 BC. Ahaz is an abbreviation of Jehoahaz, Ahaz’s full name which means “Yahweh has possessed”. He is one of the kings mentioned in the genealogy of Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew.

The reign of King Ahaz is described in 2 Kings 16; Isaiah 7-9; and 2 Chronicles 28. He is said to have given himself up to a life of wickedness, introducing many pagan and idolatrous customs (Isaiah 8:19; 38:8; 2 Kings 23:12). He ignored the warnings of the prophets Isaiah, Hosea, and Micah.

The Seal of King Ahaz
In the mid-1990s bulla (royal seals) appeared on the antiquities market. One of the seals contained not only the name of King Ahaz, but also the name of his father, King Yehotam. In addition, Ahaz is specifically identified as "King of Judah." The Hebrew inscription, which is set on three lines, reads as follows: "l'hz*y/hwtm*mlk*/yhdh", which translates, "Belonging to Ahaz (son of) Yehotam, King of Judah."

Seal of King Ahaz


The back of the bulla bears the imprint of the papyrus it once sealed, as well as the double string, which held it together. It contains a fingerprint on the left edge. Like many bullae, it was preserved due to being baked by fire, presumably incidentally (house or city was burned), as in a kiln. Given the process that created and preserved bullae, they are virtually impossible to forge. Most scholars believe this seal to be authentic.

Name of King Ahaz Found in the Annals of Tilgath Pileser III
Another important source regarding the historicity of Ahaz comes from the annals of Tilgath Pileser III that mentions tributes and payments he received from Ahaz, King of Judah and Menahem, King of Israel

Tilgath-Pileser III was a prominent king of Assyria in the 8th century BC and is widely regarded as the founder of the Neo-Assyrian Empire. He is considered one of the most successful military commanders in world history, conquering most of the world known to the ancient Assyrians before his death.

From a building inscription preserved on clay - The Ancient Near East Inscriptions Volume I (page 193)

“I received the tribute of Kushtashpi of Commagene, Urik of Que, Sibbittibel of Byblos, Enilil of Hamath, Jehoahaz of Judah" – Tilgath Pileser

“Ahaz took the silver and gold that was found in the house of the Lord, and in the treasures of the king's house, and sent it for a present to the king of Assyria - Tilgath Pileser” – 2 Kings 16

 
 
Book of Isaiah Bible
 
"He was wounded for our transgressions and he was bruised for our iniquities. The chastisement for our peace was upon him and by his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray. We have turned every one to his own way and God has laid on him the iniquity of us all" - Isaiah 53
