JW3 Morning One Off, 10.30 to 1pm, Thurs 7th January: ROMAN JUDEA

Welcome to our first history session of 2021.

Our morning together will be divided into three equal parts, viz:

  1. The Creation of the Roman Province of Judea 6AD

  2. the First Jewish-Roman War 66-74 AD

  3. The Second Jewish-Roman War 132-135 AD

If you have a map of Ancient Judea it might be handy to have it to hand, although the story is so action packed and fast moving you probably will just want to listen as it all unfolds.
