The Fall of Israel

“Despite prophetic warnings, Israel still rejects God, and the end is at hand for the northern tribes.  Last-minute desperation will lead to an alliance with Egypt in an effort to stave off Assyria, bu the cause is hopeless.  After a three-year siege, Samaria will fall and many of the people of Israel will be led captive to Assyria.”
