Returning to Jerusalem from Persian-controlled Babylon, a scribe named Ezra started a tradition that became a core aspect of Jewish life-reading and interpreting the scriptures. This program examines historical examples of Jewish responses to cultural and military threats-such as when Alexander the Great invaded the Middle East in 330 B.C. and when the Greek king Antiochus IV forbade the practice of Judaism, provoking the Maccabean revolt.
