Welcome to Hamutal’s story! If you’ve never heard of her before, you are in for a treat, not because she was a bold example of righteousness but because her and her sons are vitally important in the history of Judah. She was queen mother to two sons who would both sit on the throne, but their wickedness would lead to the Babylonian exile at the hands of Nebuchadnezzar. The Babylonian exile influenced the people of Judah, so much so that parts of modern Judaism were birthed in the exile and Hamutal played her part as a person of influence and a woman of power. This is her story.
