During 733 - 732 BCE, the Assyrian empire growth and became strong and clever because of Tiglath-Pileser III, the new king. Because Assyria became one of the strongest and most dominant kingdoms, they began to take control of many kingdoms in the East, West, North, and South such as: Asia Minor in the East, they took control over Urartu and Medez. From here the Israelites felt threatened, because at any moment they knew that they were going to be conquered and also that at this time this empire fell into anarchy. Finally, the army of King Tiglath-Pileser III conquered Gilead and Galilee, and that was when the Israelites took this action as their last warning. So at that time, the king of Israel commanded the rich of the kingdom to pay tribute to the king of Assyria, indirectly giving the kingdom. We can say that this affected religion, in the form that they gave the kingdom, so the Assyrians could have modified the religion a little with their beliefs or as they seemed appropriate.
