I declare the Jewish history shall be written for centuries to come - King Saul
Judah in the North
The Jewish History told through a comic strip
Abraham and Sarah were the first people God made a covenant with. God gave Abraham his new name. They were called Patriarchs and Matriarchs. God promised them that their descendants and everyone after that will inherit a Promise Land as long as they follow him lovingly and loyally.
God came to Moses in a time in need as a burning bush asking him to free the slaves that were under Pharaoh's power. When Pharaoh didn't give in, God sent the 10 plagues on the people. This is also when the passover happened. When Pharaoh finally agreed, Moses led the people to the Promise land. On the way there, Moses went to the top of Mount Sinai and received the Torah, or the 10 Commandments.
At this time, Palestine was ruled by many kings. When king Saul reigned, the 12 tribes were divided into Israel in the north with 10 tribes and Judah in the south with 2 tribes. Later when Kind David reigned, the 12 tribes became into one nation, which later on will be divided again by the Greeks.
Israel in South
When the Greeks ruled Israel, Palestine was divided into two parts; Syria in the north and Egypt in the south west. The Greek influence in Israel was not as strong as in Judah because it was ruled from a far. There was a group of Jews that wanted their independence from the Greeks, so they formed a rebellious group called the Zealots and it lasted for 100 years before the Romans took over the land.
100 years after the Jewish independents, Palestine was ruled by the Romans and the Romans would carefully appoint a leader to rule. When Israel was conquered by the Romans, they selected king Herod to represent the Romans. It was estimated that towards the end o his reign, Jesus was born in 4 B.C.E.. King Herod's son would continue to rule after.
