According to Holy Bible, Jesus is the last king of Israelites. though he was rejected by the people of that time. but Jesus is the last king and having a royal line of God, who is king of kings
---Ravi_Mohan on 1/28/13

Jesus received his humanity from Mary but his right to the royal line from Joseph. The genealogy in Luke 3:31 (which is Marys line) shows descent through David's son Nathan whereas royal dependancy passed down through David's son Solomon. The genealogy in Matthew 1 traces Josephs line. The curse recorded in Jer 22:28 over King Jeconiah says he shall be recorded as childless. Claim to the throne would normally pass on to natural children but as the decree from God states that "none will sit on the throne of David" held true. Jesus was not the natural descendant of Joseph but through his earthly father inherited the right to the throne where no other natural descendant could because of this curse.

The last and Everlasting Good King of Israel is Jesus Christ.

God did warn them but they chose wrong.
---Chelsea on 10/27/09

God never wanted his people to have a King in the first place. 1st Samuel 8 describes how the people of Israel begged for a King so they could be ruled like the nations around them. God warned his people against this, but they refused to listen to His prophet Samuel. God gave his people what they thought they wanted. The monarchy lasted a mere 100 years, until the Hebrews were taken into exile, which is proof of the monarchy's failure. The monarchy was an anomaluos chapter in Israel's history, and not to be understood as their typical form of government.

Troy - I just heard the account this week of Joseph being in the bloodline to be a king, and how it could not be because of the "last king's" actions. Can you give me the scripture reference for this? Thanks GeoN
---George on 12/17/08

The bible says that he was a bad king he also was cursed by God that none of his seed would ever be King. That is how the line ended. The king of Isreal is Jesus son of Joseph. joseph would have been king except for the curse. Mary was also of royal blood. Jesus kingship comes from Mary because if Jesus was the seed of joseph he too would have been cursed. however, Jesus is the seed of the Holy spirit and not Joseph. Mary his mother gives him his royality.

Some might ay it was Simon bar Kokhba, the commander of the revolt in 135ad, acclaimed a Messiah (NOT THE Messiah), meaning KING.

The revolt established a Jewish state for over two years, but a massive Roman army finally crushed it.

This time in History was far worse then 70ad.

The Romans then barred Jews from Jerusalem, except for Tisha B'Av.

Rome also renamed Jerusalem.

Solomon was the last king of the united state of Israel before it went into civil war and became two nations: Israel and Judah. The last king of Israel before the Assyrian invasion was Hoshea. In Judah, Zedekiah was the last king before the Babylonian invasion. After that Israel was not an independent state and was subject to the rulers of whatever empire they were under.

Jane, a President serves under the King (God). Up to the early second century, Jewish Presidents were called Nasi. The Nasi governed over the Sanhedrin and would have been one of those who sat on Moses Seat. The earliest version of the Sanhedren was in Numbers 11:16 when God asked Moses to gather 70 Elders - Moses was the very first Nasi, and was President over his people. Jesus also appointed 70 of His own to form new Sanhedrin. Nasi was the Jewish equivalent to the Pope.

Thanks for the responses but no one has answered my question on who was the last king of Israel? When did he reign and was he good or evil? Thanks tom2, but I'm not looking for Jesus as the answer since Israel did not recognized Him as King.

** In a way, they still do have a kings because the country has an elected president.**

What is the resemblance between an elected president and a hereditary monarch?

Am I missing something here?

The two principles for determining the succession are opposed.

In case you've not noticed, Shelly, monarchy is not very "in" as a form of government these days.

Many nations that historically have had monarchs deposed them. Ever hear of Iran, Greece, Russia, et al?
