Based on modern archaeological research, this illustrated volume explores the history of Judaism during the Second Temple period (516 BC–AD 70), describing the body of Jewish literature written during these centuries and the most important groups, institutions, and practices of the time. Particularly interesting are VanderKam’s depiction of events associated with Masada and the Kokhba revolt, and his commentary on texts unearthed in places like Elephantine, Egypt, and Qumran.
