Maccabeans as "Judges"
In Response To: Judges or Maccabeans? ()

AGa,

The Maccabean princes/kings would have thought of themselves as "Judges" in that they were members of the Ptolemaic royal family but of lesser rank. How much inspiration they drew from the judges of the Book of Judges (Ehud-Montuemhet II and the like) I don't know. Haven't thought about it in those terms specifically. It would make for an interesting study.
