Visions of Kingdoms

From Pompey to the First Jewish Revolt

Amy-Jill Levine

From the time they suppressed the revolts led by Sertorius in Spain and Spartacus in Italy in the 70s BCE to their defeat of King Mithradates VI of Pontus in 66 BCE, Roman forces under the capable leadership of Pompey increasingly consolidated their power over Europe and extended their control eastward to the Euphrates River. By 65, Pompey began to focus on Syria, and in 64 the former Seleucid empire became an imperial province. Since the region included Judea and Galilee, the territory once ruled independently by the Hasmonean dynasty would soon come under Roman control, inaugurating a new chapter in the history of Israel.
