            The Intertestimental Period - 606 BC to 4 AD

The  Story or Plot


   "By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept when we remembered Zion. We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof. For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song and they that wasted us required of us mirth saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion. How shall we sing the LORD'S song in a strange land?               
                                              
Psalm 137: 1-4


   "Then came to JESUS scribes and Pharisees which were of Jerusalem saying,Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they wash not their hands when they eat bread? But HE answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of GOD by your tradition?
                                             Matthew 15: 1-3
       




 We begin this portion at 606 BC because this is the date given(in many places) for the shekinah glory ascending and leaving Jerusalem as recorded by Ezekiel. Clearly, this was a very dark and foreboding event in the history of the Jews. Imagine the emptiness!


  Our first quote gives a brief report  of what it must have been like during the Babylonian captivity. This truly cathartic event brought about what Edersheim called 'talmudic thinking'. Scribe/Elder groups known as Tanaim surfaced during this captivity and devised a plan to NEVER let the chosen people be taken by sin again, let alone be taken captive. Their plan included writing laws which would protect them from breaking any of the original 613 laws given to Moses at Sinai. Over time, this effort morphed into what we now refer to as the Talmud, which brought forth the milk/meat rules, Kosher(matzoh) rules and hundreds of other rules. Thus, JESUS had many conflicts during HIS ministry for this reason. We've read where these teachers of Israel had amassed over 1000 rules  regarding the sabbath day alone!


  We have mentioned Alfred Edersheim but more can be learned at Ariel Ministries and Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum.


Layman's Guide to Bible Overview - Part 3
 
 THE CLIMAX


             "And I will put emnity between thee and the woman and between thy seed (anti-christ) and her seed.IT (Messiah) shall bruise thy head and thou shalt bruise HIS heel.       Genesis 3:15
 
             "Forasmuch as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, HE also Himself
likewise took part of the same; that through death HE might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil."          Hebrews 2:14


When JESUS finally came on the scene, the law of Moses had been rewritten,
revised and circumvented. Sadly, much of the reasoning for this condition included profit(money making), political power(Rome) and control of the common people. However, GOD would be faithful and complete HIS plan.


The Climax of any play or novel is a fulfillment of a body of previous writings. It is
accompanied by angst, relief, pain, happiness and a belief that right has been done. John 19:30 records the LORD'S own testimony about the matter and tells all we need to know in the few words, IT IS FINISHED. So, we now have the penalty for sin paid in full and an eternal home in heaven awaits all true believers.


Thus, the prophetic portions that center on the death, burial and resurrection of JESUS are now complete, leaving another large part of scripture for us to enjoy and to grow from.
