  3. The Maccabees: Jewish Leaders who defeated the Syrian king Antiochus IV whom the Jews called a “mad man”. The Maccabees won independence for the Jewish people from the mad man who tormented them. It was Antiochus’ view to make Jerusalem “A graveyard of Jews”. He had fulfilled the prophecy of Daniel concerning the Abomination of Desecration that causes Desolation (which is standing in the Holy of Holies and declaring himself to be god), however; there will be another in the future (called the Antichrist) who will do likewise because Jesus foretold it. This person is called the Beast and the Antichrist during Daniel’s 70th week and in the book of Revelation.

Daniel 9:27
Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; But in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, Even until the consummation, which is determined, Is poured out on the desolate.”

Mark 13:14
The Great Tribulation
“So when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not” (let the reader understand), “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountain.

~100 BC – 50 BC The Antikythera mechanism, is an ancient mechanical computer designed to calculate astronomical positions. It was recovered in 1900–01 from the Antikythera wreck, but its complexity and significance were not understood until decades later. It is now thought to have been built about 150–100 BC. Perhaps the astronomer Hipparchus was the engineer who designed it since it contains a lunar mechanism which uses Hipparchus’s theory for the motion of the Moon. Investigators have suggested that the ship could have been carrying it to Rome, together with other treasure looted from the island to support a triumphal parade being staged by Julius Caesar. However, the most recent findings of The Antikythera Mechanism Research Project, as published in the July 30, 2008, edition of Nature also suggest that the concept for the mechanism originated in the colonies of Corinth, which might imply a connection with Archimedes. The circumstances under which it came to be on the cargo ship are unknown. Consensus among scholars is that the mechanism itself was made in the Greek speaking world. All the instructions of the mechanism are written in Greek. Sketch is Public Domain: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Antikythera_mechanism.svg
