    1. Given that Judaism has its roots in the Torah, I errantly thought that when the Old Testament ended there was little left that significantly shaped the Jewish culture Holzapfel would probably feint if he heard me utter the hint of that opinion Obviously, I assumed incorrectly, and it wasn t until I informed myself via this book that I have understood better what went on in Jerusalem so many years ago that influences modern politics and culture both in the east and in the west Holzapfel and Brown [...]

    2. What happened between the end of Malachi and the advent of Jesus There are a good 500 years between the Old Testament and the New Testament Reading the two books, you feel and see a difference, but why This very good book told from a Latter day Saint perspective tells what happened in those in between years how the world changed to set the scene for the Savior s coming First, the authors present the history They tell how the Jewish exiles returned from Babylon and rebuilt Jerusalem, the Greeks c [...]

    3. I d never known how Judea transformed from a Persian state at the end of the Hebrew Bible to a Roman one in the Christian New Testament And I knew the Maccabees fell into that transformation somewhere, but was never sure of the details This book filled in those gaps, and many others such as What happened to the Sadducees after the NT I also really appreciated learning how the apocrypha got excised from the Christian Bible and the authors emphasis that LDS will benefit from studying these books o [...]

    4. Interesting but still a history book so, you know, not THAT interesting The coolest part for me was connecting Christ as a historical figure I d read about him and Cleopatra in the same section and think, Oh yeah, I guess they were contemporaries I wish the book was arranged sequentially instead of divided into sections I need a through line, folks This brain don t jump at least not without ample graphs and charts.Reading it has certainly given me a craving, though, and I m sure you lit aholics [...]

    5. This was a great history lesson about what happens between the Old and New Testaments both politically in the region, and in terms of religious history How did Greek culture change Jewish culture How did the Pharisees and Scribes gain such prominence Did the Jews look forward to the coming of a Messiah Where did the Samaritans come from, and why was there such animosity between them and the Jews All these questions and many are addressed using the history sources currently available to us A who [...]

    6. I really enjoyed reading this book It gives me so much understanding of the Jewish culture in New Testament times as well as Old Testament times Most recently, I read it in conjunction with the Apocrypha and I was amazed at how much better I understood what was going on because I had background.

    7. There were some interesting things about it I liked the format You definitely have to be in learning mode, rather than entertainment mode when reading this.

    8. Nice, easy reading history of the intertestimental period Glad I read it, it was a good way to fill in the gaps.
