Judah Maccabee is on shaky ground. With a growing army of devoted fanatics, Judah has taken control of Jerusalem and cleansed the Second Temple of the ongoing abominations it suffered under control of the Hellenizers. But while his position looks stronger than ever, Judah’s army was only able to withstand the wrath of the Seleucid Empire because of a crisis: the King is dead.
In the last episode of the Hammer of Hanukkah, we find out how the Maccabees handle the next generation of Seleucid leadership. And, we learn the ultimate fate of Judah Maccabee.
