Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wondered how the Jewish people became a nation of diaspora, living for centuries without a homeland? Learn the answer to this question in our audiobook about the Bar Kokhba Revolt, the last great Jewish uprising against Rome!

Take a journey through the ancient history of the Jewish people, a proud and stubborn people who desired to retain their freedom and uniqueness. They fought for this ideal for centuries with various success, but then came the mighty Roman Empire. At first, the Romans were their allies, but they eventually conquered the Jewish state into their vast realm.

However, the Jewish yearning for liberty wasn’t easily extinguished, and they began rebelling against their new overlord. Even after two failed attempts, their spirits weren’t broken. Thus came Simon bar Kokhba, a charismatic and capable leader who organized the Jewish forces and prepared for what turned out to be the final reckoning in a clash between two civilizations.

Here are some of the captivating details you’ll find in this audiobook:

  • What the base tenants of ancient Judaism were and how it formed
  • How the Roman-Jewish relations evolved through the centuries
  • What sparked the Jewish desire to fight against the Romans
  • How the rebel forces prepared for their uprising

Great history, I learned much from this work

Jewish revolts against Rome always seemed somewhat blurred in my mind, but this work clarified the earlier revolts and the later Bar Kokhba (son of star) Revolt. This works covers the history of the revolt without diminishing the character of the religions of the time. Very well done!
