2 Machabees: Women

  1. The evil, wicked Greeks send an old man to Jerusalem with one important mission: destroy the faith of the Jews. He defiles the temple, causes the Jewish women to go wild in the holy places, and forces an old Jew to eat pork. When he refuses, he is killed (after his Jewish friends try to save him through "wicked pity"). 6:1-31
