-Ahaziah: Called.Ahaziah.in 2Kings 8:25,26 and 2Chronicles 22:1,2,7-9.

Also incorrectly called.Azariah.in 2Chronicles 22:6 and 2Kings 15:1-7 and called.Jehoahaz.in 2Chronicles 21:17 and 25:22,23

Ahazizh was youngest son of Jehoram, king of Judah:.2Kings 8:25,26 "In the twelfth year.(11th to 12th:.2Kings 9:29).of Joram.(also called Jehoram).the son of Ahab king of.Israel.did Ahaziah the son of Jehoram king of.Judah.begin to reign. Two and twenty years old was Ahaziah when he began to reign and he reigned one year in Jerusalem.(the capital of.Judah.from where he reigned over all Judah). And his mother's name was Athaliah, the daughter of Omri king of.Israel."

2Kings 15:1 "In the twenty and seventh year of Jeroboam II king of.Israel.began.Azariah.son of Amaziah king of.Judah.to reign. "

2Chronicles 22:1-4 "And the inhabitants of Jerusalem made Ahaziah his youngest, son king in his stead, for the band of men that came with the Arabians to the camp had slain all the eldest. So Ahaziah the son of Jehoram king of Judah reigned. Forty and two years old was Ahaziah when he began to reign and he reigned one year in Jerusalem. His mother's name also was Athaliah the daughter of Omri. He also walked in the ways of the house of Ahab, for his mother was his counsellor to do wickedly. Wherefore he did evil in the sight of the LORD like the house of Ahab, for they were his counsellors after the death of his father to his destruction."

Note that the scripture says in error.(no thanks to the translators), that he was forty-two years of age when he ascended the throne. See at:.2Chronicles 22:2.

The name.Jehoahaz.was given to Ahaziah once he became king of Judah:.2Chronicles 21:17. The name Jehoahaz means 'God his sustainer' or 'he whom God holds'. He succeeded his father Jehoram/Joram king of Judah in B.C.E. 881 and reigned only one year at Jerusalem.

Ahaziah was 6th king of Judah and the son of Jehoram.(also called Joram).and the evil woman Athaliah. Guided by his idolatrous mother Athaliah, his reign was disastrous:.2Kings 8:24-29. Ahaziah followed the evil ways of the house of Ahab of Israel, to which he was allied through his mother Athaliah.

Ahaziah's son was Jehoash/Joash:.2Kings 13:1 "... Joash the son of Ahaziah king of Judah..." 1Chronicles 3:10,11 "And Solomon's son was Rehoboam, Abia his son.(this Abia was not king), Asa his son, Jehoshaphat his son, Joram his son, Ahaziah his son, Joash his son."

Ahaziah was nephew of the other Ahaziah, a king of.Israel. This Ahaziah in.Israel.being the son of Ahab, who was king of Israel at the time of Ahaziah's birth. And, this Ahaziah's mother was the horribly evil bitch Jezebel.

Ahaziah, the.Judah.one, was at first viceroy during his father's sickness, then became king of Judah.

He later joined his uncle Jehoram/Joram, king of.Israel, in an expedition at Ramothgilead against Hazael, king of Damascus.(map), but was wounded at the pass of Gur when attempting to escape and had strength only to reach Megiddo, where he died:.2Kings 9:22-28. Ahaziah met his death at the hand of Jehu, while in company with Jehoram/Joram of Israel, the son of Ahab.

Jehu allowed the attendants of Ahaziah of Judah to bury him in an honorable manner and in a sepulchre with his fathers in the city of David,."because, said they, he is the son.(actually he was.grandson, which, however, is still a son by forefather; here as in Matthew 1:1 and 2Chronicles 22:9, the.Bible.in addition to talking of a direct son, can talk of a son by lineage;."In proper names".says Furst, "those of cognate senses were often interchanged").of Jehoshaphat.(Jehoshaphat king of Judah), who sought the Lord with all his heart..."....2Chronicles 22:9

Ahaziah of Judah didn't have much of a chance coming from the family he came from:.2Chronicles 22:2-4.
 


-Ahijah: A prophet of Shiloh:.1Kings 11:29,30; 14:2. He was called the 'Shilonite' as his residence was in Shilo. 

He was a prophet in the days of Jeroboam I of Israel and Rehoboam of Judah. Jeroboam I bears testimony to the high esteem in which he was held as a prophet of God:.1Kings 14:2,3.

On record are two of Ahijah's remarkable prophecies; one being announcing the rending of the ten tribes from Solomon:.1Kings 11:31-39

The other being a message delivered to Jeroboam I's wife.(1Kings 14:7-12), foretelling the death of Abijah her son. 

The message from God through Ahijah also covered the destruction of Jeroboam I's house, meaning no more descendants, and also talked of the captivity of Israel:.1Kings 14:14-16.

-Apollos: Comprised from Bible Dictionaries. Apollos was a Jew of Alexandria, a learned and eloquent man, who through the Scriptures and the ministry of John the Baptist became a Christian.

Apollos knew only the water baptism of John the Baptist. He did not yet know that what John had foretold:.Matthew 3:11. Aquila and Priscilla updated his knowledge when he was at Ephesus:.Acts 18:24-28.

Apollos visited Ephesus.(map 1, 2).about 54 A.D. and preached with great power and success, especially among the Jews:.Acts 19:1; 1Corinthians 3:6.

His character was not unlike that of Paul, as they were equally grieved at the dissension of the Corinthians and at those personal partialities.(1Corinthians 1:12; 3:4).which led many away from Christ:.1Corinthians 3:4-22; 16:12.

His prior deep knowledge of the Old Testament gave him special affinity and respect with the Jews:.Acts 18:28.

-Ashurbanipal, king of Assyria B.C.E. 669-626; also spelt Assurbanipal, the Greek spelling of which is Sardanapalos.

In the Bible he is called.Asnapper, the great and noble:.Ezra 4:10 "And the rest of the nations whom the great and noble Asnappar brought over and set in the cities of Samaria and the rest that are on this side the river and at such a time."

Asnapper was luxurious, ambitious and cruel, but a magnificent patron of literature. He formed at Nineveh a library of clay tablets, numbering about 10,000. This library consists of about ten thousand flat bricks or tablets all written over with Assyrian characters. They contain a record of the history, the laws and the religion of Assyria and of the greatest value, strange clay leaves found in the royal library form the most valuable of all the treasuries of the literature of the old world. The earliest known dictionaries were found in the library of the Assyrian king Ashurbanipal at Nineveh. The library also contains old Accadian documents, which are the oldest extant documents in the world, dating as far back as probably about the time of Abraham.

These are now mostly in the British Museum. They throw much light on the history and antiquities of Assyria. Assur-bani-pal was a munificent.patron of literature and the conqueror of Elam. Towards the middle of his reign his empire was shaken by a great rebellion headed by his brother in Babylon. The rebellion was finally put down, but Egypt was lost and the military power of Assyria was so exhausted that it couldn't with difficulty resist the hordes of Kimmerians who poured over Western Asia.
