This chapter focuses on the stories of Judah and Judea. In 538 bce, after Cyrus had issued decrees permitting them to do so, exiles began to return to Judah and to rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem. The restored Judah was known as Yehud, and was a subprovince of the satrapy of Abar Nahara. The province of Judea was established in the year 63, when Pompey entered Jerusalem and the Romans took control.
