Omri and David

There are numerous indications of parallels between the history of the Omride dynasty and the history of the kingdom of Judah (and of the Northern Kingdom). One is that a king in both the Omride and Davidic dynasty dies at Megiddo. Ahaziah is shot by Jehu during Jehu’s rebellion, flees to Megiddo, and dies there (2 Ki 9:27). Though Ahaziah is a king of Judah, he has been incorporated into the Omride dynasty through marriage. Later in Kings, Josiah is also killed at Megiddo (23:28-30). Both of these deaths, of course, are rolled into the battle of Har-Megedon in Revelation 16:16.
