Abstract Israel Finkelstein and Nadav Na'aman have recently opposed each other over the sudden growth of Jerusalem between the conquest of Samaria by Sargon and Sennacherib's campaign in 701 BCE. Was the growth so sudden that only the arrival of Israelite refugees explains it? Does a flood of refugees explain the integration of Israelite traditions into Judean texts? This article challenges the validity of the notion of refugees in the ancient world, evaluate the probability of the integration of Israelite culture during the reign of Hezekiah and question the notion that propaganda was the primary cause of the formation of Biblical texts.
