  1. Monotheistic dances part 8.2

    When you look at the unfolding history of the second revolt, we are struck by the similarities and differences. In both cases, Jewish Christians had to make some choices about belief and where they would place their heart. In the first reolt, it all happened so quickly, the church just had to be watchful as Jesus had taught them. In the second revolt, the Jewish Christians were forced to make the choice.

    So far, we have seen how change and historical setting have affected the Dance.
