    • The Kingdom of David and Solomon (1077-997 BC) King David ruled Israel from 990 BC to 968 BC; and his son Solomon ruled after him until 928 BC. David enlarged his kingdom and brought it to the peak of political and military power. Solomon “ruled over all the kingdoms west of the Euphrates River from Tiphsah to Gaza; he was at peace with all his neighbors” (I Kings, 4:24).

    • The Herodian Period (30 BC to 70 AD) King Herod, of Edomite extraction, was king of Israel from 40 BC to 4 BC. He was appointed by Rome and conquered the kingdom from the Hasmoneans. When Augustus became the Roman Caesar in the year 30 BC, Herod convinced him of his loyalty, and Augustus rewarded him by adding Jericho, the coastal region south of Dor and the region east of the Sea of Galilee. In 23 BC, he was given the Bashan, Horen, and Tarchon regions, and three years later, the Golan Heights.
