It is quite probable that Jesus was referring to the book of First Maccabees together with the prophecy of Daniel when he spoke of the abomination of desolation. This appalling abomination has been described as the altar of the Olympian Zeus erected upon the Jewish altar of burnt offering or the statue of Zeus himself set up in Jerusalem by Antiochus Epiphanes. A third possibility is that it refers to three meteorite cult-stones (massebot), which were said to have been representative of the God of the Jews, the Queen of Heaven, and their divine son, Dionysus. In either case we have the sin of syncretism: that of the sun god cult with Judaism. The persecution of the faithful included even their young babies being tortured to death. Some say that it is around this same time that the "Teacher of Righteousness" of the religious sect known as the Essenes, had taken his refuge in the caves of Qumran. The Essene sect probably finds its origin through an outward resistance to the Hellinization of Judaism, which began as a result. Would you like to know more?
