About this ebook

The specific historical figures that represented the "scarlet thread" of Messianic kingship during the Ptolemaic Age just so happen to also be the most celebrated figures of that period (between Alexander the Great and Julius Caesar).  This is not at all coincidental.  Ancient historians were obliged to honor the direct ancestors of the royal family above all others.  This book examines the surprising relationship between Ptolemy II (of Egypt), Hannibal Barca (of Carthage), Judas Maccabee (of Israel) and Gaius Marius (of Egypt), who are not only the most recognized persons from the Ptolemaic Age to us today, but identified by ancient writers as the most significant leaders from that time, as well.
