The Greatest Story Ever Told Session #8: 1 and 2 Maccabees, introduction to the Prophets

(Listen to this session here).

We complete the last two books of the historical section of the Old Testament--1 and 2 Maccabees.  In these texts we see the lengths of fidelity the Maccabean family and their followers would go to be faithful to God's Law.  Their heroic witness--even to the point of martyrdom--is cause for inspiration as we strive to be faithful to God in our secular society.  We also look to the next section of the Old Testament--the prophets--and are introduced to them here.
