Illuminating Faith – Jewish history in the intertestamental period

This page is supplementary to the Illuminating Faith Introduction to the New Testament studies.

The following YouTube videos by Sam Aronow are a great introduction to Jewish history from the beginning of the Hellenistic period to the beginnings of Christianity. The videos are each quite short but contain lots of detail. Other videos by Aronow cover earlier and later periods in Jewish history.

The Interdynastic Period (Early Second Temple)

The Hasmonean Period (Mid-Second Temple)

The Herodian Period (Late Second Temple)
