Maccabees – A Historical Study
$3.00 – $25.00
Step back to the time between the last events of the Old Testament and the first events of the New Testament. About 400 years separate the testaments and this is often referred to as the 400 Silent Years. However, as you will see, God was not silent during this time but working actively among His people. Our study takes place around 160 BC, it is the story of the holiday we know today as Chanukah or the Feast of Dedication.
Using the extra-biblical book of 1 Maccabees introduce your students to a faithful and courageous family who stood against assimilating to the Greek culture. Show your students the events that led this family to flee to the mountains, work to unite those dedicated to God, and eventually reclaim the Temple. This is one story that will encourage your students to be faithful and courageous in the times in which they live!
