Abstract

The beginning of the first millennium C.E. is a tumultuous time in the province of Judea. Roman control over the region is unstable, and its tolerance for the Jews there is destined to come to a violent end. In those days, a revolutionary current has arisen, and turns to ousting all foreign occupiers, with the clarion call of Leviticus 25:10: “Proclaim liberty throughout the land.” The Zealot party, that happens to be headquartered in the Galilee, has quickly morphed into a serious revolutionary movement. What do we make of the Zealots, and was Jesus of Nazareth in broad agreement with them, if not even one of them? Get ready to dig deeply in this intriguing episode.
