I think this era and info on Persia are crucial to understanding history. What I would love you to post is an analysis of how and why Cyrus granted Judea to the Jews. What kind of pressure were the Jews under? What was in it for Cyrus / Persia?
With the warmongering over Iran reaching deafening levels, it would be great for everyone to learn more about the shared roots of the Persian/Iranian and the Judaic peoples.
peace from Toronto the Good,
