Biblical History (Part 10)

Film Focus: This video gives a brief overview of Jewish history from the time of the return from Babylon until the Maccabean revolt.

Text Focus: Pages 165-168

Discussion Questions:

  1. How did the Jews returning from Babylon re-commit themselves to God?
  2. Who were some of the major figures after the return from Babylon in the Old Testament? Who were some of the major figures in world history at this time?
  3. In what ways did the Jewish people continue to suffer under foreign rule during this time period?
  4. The Maccabean revolt resulted because the Jewish people were inhibited from practicing their faith. How does this compare with challenges you face in maintaining a Christian identity in today’s culture?
