Matthew 16:13 (ESV) Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” Matthew 16:14 (ESV) And they said, “Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” Matthew 16:15 (ESV) He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”

2 Matthew 16:16 (ESV) Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Matthew 16:17 (ESV) And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. Matthew 16:18 (ESV) And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Matthew 16:19 (ESV) I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” Matthew 16:20 (ESV) Then He strictly charged the disciples to tell no one that He was the Christ. 1.

The Intertestamental Period The reader of the New Testament quickly becomes aware of having entered a world quite different from that of Malachi. New religious and political parties have risen to prominence. A new world power is in control. Even Jewish popular perceptions regarding the Law and God’s promised Messiah have changed. No canonical records exist for the 400-year period between the return from Babylon and the birth of Jesus, but an understanding of the historical and religious developments during this time is critical to our understanding of the New Testament world. Jesus’ ministry and the development of the early church take place within this new context and are shaped, at least in part, by more recent events as well as by Israel’s Exodus, kingdom, and the Exile.

One Period - Six Divisions If the Book of Malachi was completed in about 450 B.C., then the period under consideration begins at that point and continues until the angel’s announcement of the birth of John the Baptist (Luke 1:11-17). Six historical divisions are observable within this time span: The Persian Era, which actually dates to 536 B.C. but coincides with the Intertestamental Period from 450 to 336 B.C.; the Greek Era (336-323 B.C.); the Egyptian Era (323-198 B.C.); the Syrian Era (198-165 B.C.) the Maccabean Era (165-63 B.C.); and the Roman Era (63-4 B.C.)
