Attacks on Jerusalem
The Bible reports that King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon attacked Jerusalem three times:
- In the 3rd/4th year of Jehoiakim/Eliakim (the 1st year of Nebuchadnezzar).
- In the 11th year of Jehoiakim/Eliakim until the 3rd month of Jeconiah/Jehoiachin (the 8th year of Nebuchadnezzar).
- In the 9th-11th year of Zedekiah/Mattaniah (17th-19th year of Nebuchadnezzar). This is the most well-known attack by Nebuchadnezzar and resulted in the complete destruction of Jerusalem.
