39 Jewish Dates Leading Up to the 1 st Century 930 BC King Solomon dies; Kingdom is divided. 722 BC Assyria destroys Northern Kingdom of Israel. 586 BC Babylonia destroys Southern Kingdom of Judah; Babylonian Captivity & Jewish diaspora.
40 Effect of Babylonian Captivity on the Jews The Babylonian Exile staggered Judaism. 1. Is YHWH God NOT as powerful as the Babylonian gods? 2. Does God no longer love us, or no longer accept us as His Chosen People? 3. How do we continue without the things that represent our election by God the Promised Land and the Temple? (Development of the synagogue system, with a formalized focus on prayer and study rather than sacrifice.) 4. How do we worship without the Temple? 5. Are we to be assimilated into a foreign culture as happened to the Northern Kingdom of Israel? (Why synagogues became community centers.)

44 The 1 st Century AD and Judaism The last prophet of God Malachi had been over 400 years earlier. Where was God? The Greek influence on Jewish culture and religion had created tremendous rifts. Pharisees the set apart ones were Jewish fundamentalists, holding to strict acceptance of all the Hebrew Bible and opposing Hellenization. Sadducees were liberal Hellenized Jews with a limited interpretation of Torah (but not the rest of the Tanakh), and most of the political power. Essenes were cultic, apocalyptic Jewish sect that advocated complete separation. Zealots saw Roman oppression as the enemy, to be driven out at all costs.
45 The 1 st Century AD & the Birth of Christianity 1. The Jewish people had a historic expectation of God s Messiah. 2. Palestine was, in Jesus time, very much center of the world, cross roads of three continents. 3. Politically and culturally, it was the perfect environment for a new faith to start and grow. a) The Pax Romana b) The Roman Roads c) The Greek language. 4. Economically, the 1 st Century was a perfect time for a new message of hope. 5. Morally and religiously, the world was tired and frustrated and ready for a change. (So many Godfearing Gentiles seeking monotheism.)
