    Jews thought much about the cause and manifestation of human sin and conflict between good and evil. Related to this problem was the development of ideas latent in Hebrew Scripture on resurrection of the body, immortality of the soul, and the concept of the afterlife. During this period the biblical concept of the Messiah took on new importance. The Empires that Ruled During the Intertestamental Period During the four hundred year intertestamental period, God ’s people experienced significant challenges and spiritual declension. This four hundred year period was characterized by six historical eras: 1. The Persian Era ( BC) 2. The Greek Era ( BC) Size: KB.

    Several of the biblical books set in the Achaemenid period are thought by scholars to have been redacted during the earlier period of the second Iranian empire, that of the Parthians (c. BCE – CE). Under Ancient Persian rule, many Jews returned from exile to the province that became known as “Yehud” (Judah), the Second Temple was. The history of the Jews in the Roman Empire traces the interaction of Jews and Romans during the period of the Roman Empire (27 BC – AD ). Their cultures began to overlap in the centuries just before the Christian , as part of the Jewish diaspora, migrated to Rome and Roman Europe from the Land of Israel, Asia Minor, Babylon and Alexandria in response .

    The Greek 'Logos' [their key concern] renders the divine mystery not definablke, or intellectually knowable, but rationally intelligible. Thus Greek Hellenism is other worldly -- that is the essential difference with Messianic Judaism -- and so it is ontological and metaphysical where Judaism is existential and morally : Tzvi Freeman. Acts says that there was a problem between “Hebraic” and “Hellenistic” Jews. This needs to be explained carefully, since the word “Jew” does not appear in the text (although English translations regularly include it). Obviously these are all Jews, but there seems to be problem between the Jews who are in Jerusalem from.
