From Israelite to Jew: 14: Hellenistic Judaism

The religion of the Jews who lived in the Greek speaking areas of the Mediterranean is commonly called "Hellenistic Judaism". This episode explains why scholars use this term; why it is less useful than it might seem; and how it is that most of these Jews would have worshiped the God of Israel.

The episode can be heard here, or in the player below. Other download options are here. It can also be accessed on iTunes.
