I Maccabees synopsis
"Apocryphal's I Maccabees (Volume 41 in the acclaimed Anchor Bible series) is an inspiring thriller." With the help of God, the old priest Mattathias and his sons - Judah, Mikabaeus, Jonathan and Simon - led the Jews in Judaism first to victory and then to freedom against the great successors of Alexander the Great. Their struggle begins in guerrilla warfare, in response to the horrific persecution of King Antiochus IV, bravely carrying out their first great victory - still celebrated at the Hanukkah Festival.
