Summary:  While Yeshua was teaching at the house of Demitrius in the city of Hippos, he made reference to several builders of empire, including: Tiglath-Pileser, Nebuchadnezzar, Cyrus of Persia, and Alexander of Macedonia. Yeshua mentioned these historical figures to portray the rise and inevitable fall of empires built by those who enslave and take dominion over others (Y:10:60-80).

 

Yeshua was likely referring to Tiglath-Pileser III, who is mentioned in the Hebrew Bible (2 Kings 15-16; 1 Chron. 5:26). Tiglath-Pileser was an ambitious and prominent king who ruled in Assyria during the eighth century BCE (c. 745—727 BCE). He created the world’s first professional army and with his vast conquests and extensive reforms, is considered one of the most successful military commanders and emperor builders in history.
