    Jewish Theocracy is an Authunity.png AuthUnity ideology that believes Judaism should be the state religion of the country and the law of the Tanakh should be the law of the state It could be ruled with the help of a court of rabbis rabbis, a Monarch.png king, or even by Krit.png judges.

    History

    According to the narrative of the Hebrew Bible, the Israelites were led by Moses who delivered laws to them from God directly. The word "theocracy" was coined by Josephus to describe this system - "our legislator [Moses] had no regard to any of these forms [of government], but he ordained our government to be what, by a strained expression, may be termed a Theocracy, by ascribing the authority and the power to God" (Against Apion, book II, chapter 17). The Bible records that Moses governed Israel in the 40-year period (Deuteronomy 29:5) that the nation lived in the wilderness until his death. When Moses died, the Bible records, it was Joshua took up his banner (Deuteronomy 34), and ruled religiously over Israel (Joshua 24:31) until his death, followed by the time of Krit.png the judges when observance of the religious law was rare (Judges 2:16-19). This period was itself followed by the Monarch.png kingdom of Israel under Saul, who was followed by David, described in the Hebrew Bible as a man of faith (II Samuel 5:12). After David the kingdom of Israel was divided between the northern kingdom of Israel-Samaria and the southern kingdom of Judah.

    It is only in the period of the divided kingdom that extra-Biblical sources regarding Israel begin to appear. The Hebrew Bible describes that very few kings of Judah were faithful to the religious law. This changed under King Josiah, who's priests (depending on your interpretation) either discovered or composed the religious laws of Judaism, and the king began to implement theocratic laws across his country (II Kings 22:8-13, II Chronicles 34:14-21). Regardless of the view taken, the fact remains that the kingdom of Judah under Josiah was the first state known outside the Bible that could be called a 'Jewish theocracy'.

    Eventually, years after Josiah's reign, the kingdom of Judah would fall to Babylonian invasion. Babylon itself would be conquered by Persia, who would be conquered by the Greek king of Macedon, Alexander the Great. Revolt against Greek rule would begin under Judah the Maccabee, which would lead to an indepentent Hasmonean kingdom, which would be replaced by a Roman-installed Herodian kingdom, which would be abolished and integrated into the Roman Empire. While some later states such as the Khazars and the Himyarites would adopt Judaism as their state religion temporarily, but generally speaking there would be no Jewish state founded until the founding of the State of Israel in 1948, which is legally secular.
