This week on Rejuvenation Eve Harow interviews Ari Lieberman on his new book, The Emperors and the Jews. It’s an in depth and heavily researched look at the relationships between the leaders of the Jewish and the Greco-Roman worlds in the era of the Second Temple and the centuries just after it’s destruction. Alexander the Great, Rav Yehuda Hanasi, Vespasian, Simon the Just, Josephus and other major personalities are put into context in this thought provoking publication. How much did early Judaism influence the Western world and was translating the Bible from Hebrew a good thing? Listen and then read. Or vice versa.
