For the history of research on 3 Maccabees, see F. Parente, 'The Third Book of Maccabees as Ideological Document and Historical Source", Henoch 10 (), pp. , who on pp. reviews scholarship since the early sixteenth century. On the relationship between 3 Maccabees and the Greek Book of Esther, see Size: 6MB. 3rd Book of Ethiopian Maccabees. The Book of Third Meqabyan has 10 chapters. It starts: "And the islands of Egypt shall rejoice". It tells about salvation and punishment, as seen in the lives of Adam, Job, David and others. English Translations Selassie, Feqade.

  Third Maccabees, by contrast, has been forgotten by both Jews and most Christians, although it is included in the Orthodox Christian canon. Written after 1 and 2 Maccabees, it tells the story of the prior persecution of the Jews by the 3rd-century-BCE Greek-Egyptian ruler Ptolemy IV Philopator, a few decades before the Maccabean revolt.

Third, the Catholic teaching regarding purgatory comes from 2 Maccabees that reads, "It is therefore a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead, that they may be loosed from sins." The belief is that people first enter purgatory upon death (at least in some cases) and that the actions of believers on Earth can help a person move to. THE FIRST BOOK OF MACCABEES MMMMMM INTRODUCTION THE English Bible, as is well known, originally contained but two so-called Books of the Maccabees. 5ere are, however, three such books found in the Septuagint, and a fourth bearing the same title in connection with the works of Josephus. 5ese are all the Books of the Maccabees now existing in Greek.
