Judea gained political independence under the Hasmonean dynasty for the first time since the deportation to Babylon. Reflections on the accomplishments of Judas Maccabeus and his brothers set the tone for messianic expectations to come, even when these expectations arose in reaction against the later Hasmonean and early Herodian rulers. The Psalms of Solomon provide an exceptionally clear snapshot of these expectations. The piety, ethics, and eschatology of these texts are explored, with an eye to their impact upon Jesus' teaching and degree of conformity to popular messianic paradigms.

Keywords:   Hasmonean dynasty, messianism, 1 Maccabees, Psalms of Solomon, Son of David, Jesus, triumphal entry, Jerusalem Temple
