This youtube video is about 50 mins long. it goes into to great detail explaining just what happened when the sign of the shadow went back ward and the impact it would of had on the Mesopotamian world at the time.
Did the Sun really go backward or did something else just as spectacular occur ? From beginning to end the Bible confronts a Babylonian world view that is able to morph and reappear as something new. The event was so spectacular that the Babylonians sent a group of ambassadors to visit Hezekiah and investigate the sign.
2nd kings 20:12 12 At that time Berodachbaladan, the son of Baladan, king of Babylon, sent letters and a present unto Hezekiah: for he had heard that Hezekiah had been sick.
2nd Chronicles 32: 30 This same Hezekiah also stopped the upper watercourse of Gihon, and brought it straight down to the west side of the city of David. And Hezekiah prospered in all his works. 31 Howbeit in the business of the ambassadors of the princes of Babylon, who sent unto him to enquire of the wonder that was done in the land, God left him, to try him, that he might know all that was in his heart.
Isaiah 38: 7 And this shall be a sign unto thee from the Lord, that the Lord will do this thing that he hath spoken; 8 Behold, I will bring again the shadow of the degrees, which is gone down in the sun dial of Ahaz, ten degrees backward. So the sun returned ten degrees, by which degrees it was gone down.
Isaiah 39 At that time Merodachbaladan, the son of Baladan, king of Babylon, sent letters and a present to Hezekiah: for he had heard that he had been sick, and was recovered.
