Josiah was only 8 years old when he became King, after his father's murder. His father had been wicked, as had the Jewish kings and culture for generations before him.

Great-grandparent: Hezekiah, who, if you remember, ask God to spare his life and granted him an extra 15 years, because of the great work he did for the Lord.

There are a number of great encouragements readers can take away from this joyful time in Judah’s history. Listen in today for great lessons about leadership.
