First Reference: Yeshua 10:70
For in ancient times there strode about the earth Tiglath-Pileser, the Assyrian, and Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon who, like young lions, thought to devour unto themselves the whole earth.
But when they were old, then came Cyrus of Persia, and like a bull great and powerful, he made subject unto himself both kingdoms.
Summary: (c. 590-529 BCE) Cyrus of Persia, commonly referred to as Cyrus the Great, was one of the greatest leaders of antiquity, known for creating the largest empire the world had ever seen.
While Yeshua was teaching at the house of Demitrius in the city of Hippos, he made reference to several builders of empire, including: Tiglath-Pileser, Nebuchadnezzar, Cyrus of Persia, and Alexander of Macedonia. In response to a Roman who was heckling Yeshua about his position on slavery, Yeshua mentioned these historical figures to portray the rise and inevitable fall of empires built by those who enslave and take dominion over others (Y:10:60-80).
