Zoom webinar in english: «Cyrus the Great and the Bible» by Paul Aitkenhead

25. oktober 2023 @ 18:00 - 19:00


Cyrus the Great was the founder of the Achaemenid Empire, which extended from the Mediterranean Sea to the Indus River.
The Edict of Restoration issued by Cyrus allowed the return of the Jews to the Judaea, is described in the Bible. This would leave a lasting legacy on the Jewish religion. The conquest of Babylon was recorded in the book of Isaiah where Cyrus is referred to as the ‘anointed one’; the only non-Jewish figure in the Bible to be revered in this capacity.

He is recognized for his influence on both Eastern and Western civilizations and he has played a crucial role in defining the national identity of modern Iran.
He remains a cult figure amongst modern Iranians, admired by many great people including Alexander the Great. In this webinar we will look more closely at the life of Cyrus and the references to him in the Bible.

The talk is free of charge and in order to see it you will need a link after registration.
