S1 E14: The Second Jewish War and the Birkat Haminim!
July 02, 2021
In this episode, we ask questions about the Second Jewish War, its "messiah" Bar Koziba, and its rabbi, Akiva.
- What made the revolt so inevitable?
- What made it such a milestone in Jewish, including Messianic Jewish, history?
- Did this war really cause a parting of the ways between Christianity and Judaism?
- What happened to the Messianic Jews who lived at that time – the Nazarenes, Ebionites, and others?
- And – were the Messianic Jews really singled out as heretics in the curse on the “minim”?
