really liked it
bookshelves: spirituality
Recommended for: those interested in Biblical history

This was a great history lesson about what happens between the Old and New Testaments - both politically in the region, and in terms of religious history. How did Greek culture change Jewish culture? How did the Pharisees and Scribes gain such prominence? Did the Jews look forward to the coming of a Messiah? Where did the Samaritans come from, and why was there such animosity between them and the Jews? All these questions - and many more - are addressed using the history sources currently available to us. A whole section on what those sources are is very helpful. Excellent resource for connecting the two Biblical Testaments of Jesus Christ!
