Maccabees
        

From the initials of Judas Maccabeus' motto, Miy Kamowka Be-'Elohiym Yahweh, "who is like unto Thee, Jehovah, among the gods?" (Exodus 15:11.) Books of the Apocrypha: interesting as giving a Jewish history of many events which occurred after the sacred Canon closed with Malachi; especially the heroic and successful struggle of the Maccabees for Judah's independence against the Old Testament antichrist and persecutor, Antiochus Epiphanes, of whom Daniel 8; Daniel 11 foretells. (See CANON; BIBLE; DANIEL; JERUSALEM.)
