From Joshua to Caiaphas

High Priests After the Exile
  • By James VanderKam

From one of the most authoritative and respected scholars of early Judaism comes this unique history of the central actors in Israel's religious and civil history from after the exile to the destruction of the Temple.

Beginning late in the Old Testament period and continuing for the next six hundred years, the Jewish high priests were often the most important members of Jewish society. They not only possessed religious authority but also exercised political control. This book gathers and assesses the surviving evidence about each of the fifty-one men who served as high priest from about 515 BCE until approximately 70 CE when the temple in Jerusalem was destroyed.
