Examining the different accounts of Hezekiah's reign in 2 Kings, 2 Chronicles, and Isaiah, Song-Mi Suzie Park describes a "Hezekiah complex" in which the king served as a symbol for the vicissitudes of Judah's history, as a positive reformer of the "pagan" ways of the country, or as a sinner, at least partly responsible for the threats and disasters that befell Judah over the next century. Park describes the ways in which biblical stories in general function as loci of continual dialogue, dispute, and discussion.
