The ancient Israelites introduced one of the first monotheistic religions in the world. And it is still practiced today!

The ancient Israelites emerged from Mount Sinai onto the hilly plains of Canaan and established a civilization that endured for hundreds of years.

Even when the Israelites fell to incursions from foreign invaders and were subjected to torture and exile, they held fast to their belief system. They emerged from the Babylonian captivity as the people of Yehud. With the aid of Cyrus the Great and the Achaemenid Empire, they rebuilt their sacred temple and got back on their feet.

However, the Greeks and the Romans presented unique challenges to the Judeans. The Hellenization period threatened the foundation of Judaism and the commitment of the Jews to their faith due to forced conversions and the practice of Jewish customs being punishable by death. Regardless, the Jews persevered, and their faith and their steadfastness hold great significance today.

This audiobook offers a deep dive into the history of the ancient Israelites and how they rose from nomadic tribes to establish a kingdom and a unique identity in Judea.
