JOSIAH IS remembered as one of the best kings of the House of David — indeed, he was the last good king of Israel.
King Josiah repaired the Temple, brought back the Law, and restored the Passover celebration, which hadn’t been kept properly since the days of the prophet Samuel.
Josiah also tore down the high places, destroyed the altars to Molech, Chemosh, and Baal, and removed the Asherim and the houses of the male cult prostitutes that had been built inside the Temple of Yahweh!
Sadly, Josiah met an untimely end when he chose to do battle with Pharaoh Necho of Egypt at Megiddo in 609 B.C.
