A Little Late But Still Fun...

Very, very cool! Thanks for posting this! The Maccabees are even heroes of faith in the Greek Orthodox Church, in spite of the fact that they were fighting the Greeks. Tyranny is tyranny, no matter who's perpetrating it. In the books of the Maccabees in the Greek Old Testament, the Spartans are said to be brothers of the Hebrews, and were thus their allies. That spirit of the 300 who gave their lives at Thermopylai (the Hot Gates) is the same as those Hebrews who fought the Seleucid Greeks, and later the same as those who gave their lives at Masada fighting the Romans. One spirit, one people, one freedom.
