From Israelite to Jew: 22: After the Destruction: A Beginning or and End?

The Jerusalem Temple was destroyed in 70 CE, a moment that typically is said to mark in Jewish historiography the end of the "second temple period" and beginning of the "rabbinic period." But to what extent did things really change? In this episode, the last of this series, I also reflect more broadly on the series. The episode can be heard here, or on the player below. More download options are available here. It is also available on iTunes and iTunesU.

From Israelite to Jew: 19: Josephus

Without the works of the historian Josephus (36/37 CE - ca. 95) we would know little about the history of the Jews in antiquity. Yet Josephus, as a historian and a man, was a complex figure: was he a Jewish patriot or a Roman toady? The episode can be heard here or on the player below. More download options are here.

From Israelite to Jew: 16: Philo

Philo Judaeus is the most well-known Jewish philosopher from antiquity. Living in Alexandria from ca. 20 BCE - 50 CE, Philo produced an astonishing corpus that has often been held up as a signal example of "Hellenistic Judaism." Who was Philo, and what was he up to?

From Israelite to Jew: 14: Hellenistic Judaism

The religion of the Jews who lived in the Greek speaking areas of the Mediterranean is commonly called "Hellenistic Judaism". This episode explains why scholars use this term; why it is less useful than it might seem; and how it is that most of these Jews would have worshiped the God of Israel.

From Israelite to Jew: 13: Origins of Jewish Sectarianism

On the origins of Jewish sectarianism in the second to first centuries, BCE, with a focus on Pharisees, Sadducees, Essenes, and (if different) the first inhabitants of Qumran, where the Dead Sea scrolls would be found. The episode can be heard here, or on the player below. More download options are here. The podcast is also available on iTunes. One listener recently alerted me (thank you!) that the audio files continue to not be properly "balanced" between left and right sides. We have figured out the cause for this, and will fix it beginning with the next episode.
