An Overview of the Zealot Movement and 12 Key Leaders (PDF Format)


Below I have provided a 32 page downloadable PDF of a study titled, “An Overview of the Zealot Movement and 12 Key Leaders.” I believe this information is valuable not only for understanding Jewish history around the time of Christ, but also for a better understanding of:

  • the man of lawlessness of II Thessalonians 2
  • Daniel 7
  • and the book of Revelation

This study is adapted from a previous post, “Revelation 13:3 and the Wounded Head of the Zealot Movement.The following is an outline of the study you can find in the PDF below:

    • Dean, you’re welcome, and thank you for your kind words. I’m not sure what you mean about sharing by email more easily. If there’s anything I can do on my end to make it easier, though, I’d be glad to do it.

    thanks and a tip of the hat to you and the effort you put forth in terms of “seeking the truth”
    i personally finished the Josephus works a couple months past and am in pursuit of shuffling historical cards into a cogent narrative
    i love your line of thought and your efforts; cant add any credible comments other than i consider your line of research as genuine and a reflection of a reality based search for truth—love it
    lol
