SECOND TEMPLE JUDAISM

Second Temple Judaism: The period of Jewish history and literature from the time the second temple was completed around 516 B.C. to the fall of Jerusalem and destruction of Herod’s temple by the Romans in A.D. 70.

In current scholarly work it is gradually replacing the more common term “Intertestamental Period.”
