The Siege of Masada: What Really Happened?

Produced by Andrew Henry, a Ph.D student in Religious Studies and creator of the Religion for Breakfast YouTube channel, this informative video (08:32) tells the story of Masada, one of the most famous archaeological sites in Israel. Best known for the dramatic mass suicide of Jewish zealots in this mountaintop fortress during the First Jewish Revolt against the Romans, as told by the historian Josephus, this video questions whether the archaeological findings support the famous legend of the site, which has become so symbolic in Jewish history and modern Israeli consciousness.
