ISBN-13: 9783981866179

Der Jehu-Roman, mit dem die Tetralogie über das Werden und die Wandlungen des altorientalischen Israel abschließt, zeigt das Königreich in der Mitte des nine. Jahrhunderts v.Chr., acht Jahrzehnte nach Jerobeams Sieg über alle seine Gegner. Die Könige Omri und sein Sohn Ahab haben Israel zu einem mächtigen Staat entwickelt, der im Bündnis mit dem Aramäer-Reich von Damaskus sich sogar den Raubzügen des Assyrerkönigs Salmanassar erwehren kann. Die Abwehrkriege gegen die Assyrer haben allerdings die Kräfte des Reiches in hohem Maße beansprucht, und das östlich des Jordans lebende Volk der Moabiter, das Israel tributpflichtig battle, hat den Tod König Ahabs genutzt, sich von Israel zu lösen und israelitische Gebiete, die es beansprucht, zu erobern. Joram, der Sohn König Ahabs, hat sich auf einen langwierigen Krieg gegen sie eingelassen und deshalb das Verteidigungsbündnis gegen die Assyrer mit Damaskus verlassen.
Jehu, ein Offizier König Jorams, wird in der Überlieferung als Rebell gegen Joram und Streiter für den rechten Glauben geschildert. Tatsächlich endete mit Joram das Königtum der Omri-Familie, und Jehu begründete eine neue Königsdynastie. Beseitigte Jehu nun, wie es die Überlieferung will, den letzten Omridenkönig allein deshalb, weil ihn der Prophet Elischa im Auftrag Gott Jahwes heimlich zum König salbte und ihm die Ausrottung der Vorgänger-Dynastie gebot?
Im Roman erscheint Jehu zunächst als kritisch-distanzierter Freund König Jorams, der diesen vor der Unzufriedenheit des Volkes wegen der ihm aufgebürdeten Lasten warnt. Joram mißversteht jedoch die intestine gemeinten Ratschläge Jehus und wittert in ihm einen Rivalen. Darüber zerbricht die Freundschaft beider, und Jehu wird zum Gegner Jorams. Darin bestärkt ihn König Hasael von Damaskus, sein Jugendfreund, den er im Auftrag König Jorams besucht. Hasael ist durch die Ermordung seines Vorgängers auf den Thron gelangt. Als energischer Feind der Assyrer, der aber zur Abwehr ihres nächsten Raubzugs die Hilfe Israels benötigt, die Joram verweigert, stachelt Jehu auf, Joram zu ermorden, sich selbst zum König Israels zu machen und das Bündnis mit Damaskus zu erneuern. Jehu steht am Scheideweg – er weiß, daß Israel und Damaskus nur gemeinsam die Assyrergefahr bannen können, daß jedoch König Joram den Aramäerkönig allein lassen wird, wenn der Feind heranzieht. Trotz dieser Einsicht und obwohl er Joram haßt, schreckt er jedoch vor dem Königsmord zurück, zumal er sich selbst als ungeeignet für das Königtum hält. Die Lösung der ihm ausweglos erscheinenden scenario erhofft er durch göttliches Eingreifen. Als Hasael Israel überfällt und Joram in der Entscheidungsschlacht tödlich verwundet wird, ist das für ihn das erbetene Zeichen Gott Jahwes. Nun fühlt er sich in Ermangelung eines anderen Retters Israels zum Königtum berufen. Das Heer steht hinter ihm, und das Volk jubelt ihm zu, als er vom Kriegsschauplatz aufbricht, um gegen die Beamten und Parteigänger der Omriden in den beiden Residenzen Jesreel und Samaria sein Königtum durchzusetzen. Auf seinem Weg vernichtet er alle, die seiner Macht gefährlich werden könnten, und so hält er es auch nach der Einnahme der Festung Samaria und der Anerkennung seines Königtums durch die Würdenträger der alten Dynastie.
Das Volk hofft nach dem Umsturz auf Entlastung. Aber auch Jehu kann seine Herrschaft nur durch die Ausbeutung seiner Untertanen wahren. So bleibt im Lande entgegen seiner ursprünglichen Absicht alles beim alten. Als er sich dem Assyrerkönig Salmanassar unterwirft und ihm den geforderten Tribut entrichtet, kostet ihn das endgültig das Vertrauen und die Zuneigung seines Volkes, und auch seine Familie und seine Freunde wenden sich von ihm ab. Die Machterhaltung und der damit einhergehende Realitätsverlust haben Jehu gewandelt, das Volk erkennt seinen einstigen Hoffnungsträger nicht wieder. Die Menschen sind enttäuscht und begreifen: König bleibt König, ob er nun Joram heißt oder Jehu.
