In the last session you saw the internal tension between Jews who adapted to the ways of the conquering powers and others who wanted to retain the traditional ways of life and religion. In this session you will experience the external threat that came from the Romans. Soldiers were present in the cities. Gentiles (those who were not Jews and worshiped pagan gods) were living in close proximity with the people of Israel. And the Roman system of taxation was oppressive.
