  • God promises Abraham a land*

  • God gives that land to Israel through the leadership and conquering of Joshua*

  • Throughout the OT Israel is persecuted, captured, and removed from the land due to their rebellion in following God

    • This is also see because of the fact that the land is a hot bed for trade

  • In the fourth century BC Alexander and the Macedonians conquered much of Palestine.

    • This caused for the development of Hellenism.

  • After the Romans conquered the land they pushed the idea of Hellenism.

    • This did not seem like a blessing to the Jews who wished to keep to their laws and the worship of their one God.
