Ancient Judaism

Lecture no. 3 from the course: The New Testament

 Ancient Judaism

Taught by Professor Bart D. Ehrman | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

Judaism, into which Jesus was born, was like other religions of the Greco-Roman world in some respects, but very different in others. At the time of Jesus, it had several sects. Many Jews embraced apocalyptic ideas, maintaining that God would soon intervene in history, crushing evil and bringing about his kingdom on Earth.
