What they were thinking about the stars and demons, in the years of Jesus

Translated from the original by Costas Balomenos

everal times the Gospel recounts us Jesus to heal people who were under the possession of evil spirits. Christ imparted this privilege and this ability to his disciples when he sent them two by two to preach.

Translated from the original by Costas Balomenos

Contrary to Antiochus IV Epiphanes, who with the help of Jewish apostates has tried in 167 BC to introduce the Greek pagan religion, by placing the statue of Zeus in the temple of Jerusalem and to force the Jews to the observance of Greek customs, leading to the outbreak of the revolution of Maccabees, the Romans - when captured Judea - not only respected the unique monotheistic religion of the ancient world, but also the rules of everyday life of the Jews, arising from this...
