Often neglected, the books of First and Second Maccabees are important for Christians, as in
them is told how the Jewish people established the political and religious culture into which
Jesus was born. The martyr stories inform the early Christian martyrdoms, and the books are
written in Greek, the language in which the Jews of Jesus’ time read the scriptures. More importantly,
as Father Harrington notes, without the Maccabees “the fate of Judaism (and with it
Christianity and Islam) was uncertain.”

Comprehensive and understandable, these books bring the relevance of the Old Testament to
Bible study participants, teachers, students, preachers, and all readers of the Bible. The series
is filled with recent scholarship, provides vital background, and addresses important questions
such as authorship and cultural context.
