Around the time of the rebellion Sepphoris had a Roman theater - in later periods, bath-houses and mosaic floors depicting human figures. Sepphoris and Jerusalem may be seen to symbolize a cultural divide between those that sought to avoid any contact with the surrounding Roman culture and those who within limits, were prepared to adopt aspects of that culture.
In the 2nd and 3rd century CE, those oracles at Didyma and Clarus pronounced the so-called "theological oracles", in which Apollo confirms that all deities are aspects or servants of an all-encompassing, highest deity. "In the 3rd century, Apollo fell silent.
On the ancient plains of Shinar, an evil was born: The first world king, the prototype transhuman, the ultimate despot, the Son of Perdition--Nimrod. In Babylon, the Son of Perdition devised the Shinar Directive: the enslaving of humanity and the war against the God of Heaven. God's intervention at the Tower of Babel only delayed his hellish plans.
The Luciferian Elite now control three key circles of influence in the world: financial, political, and religious. However, controlling these three systems was not enough. The laborers of Mystery Babylon have been quietly planning and waiting for thousands of years for the releasing of the Watchers of Genesis 6

Some texts mention a group of goddesses collectively named the "Ladies" Nanaya, Beltu-§a-Re§, Usur-amassu, and Urkayltu. They formed with Istar a pentad which stood at the center of the religious life of Uruk, it is probable that each of these goddesses was to some degree viewed as a manifestation of Istar.
The importance of Nanaya in the pantheon of Uruk derived from her position as daughter of An, and also as daughter of Inanna, with whom she became syncretized at a very early date. A hymn with prayer for king Isbi-Erra portrays the goddess as a creature of Inanna, endowed with the same attributes, and to whom Inanna has delegated her powers:
In the Mesopotamian evidence, this woman is Inanna/Ištar, the heavenly queen, but who is also known as Kilili, a female demon associated with owls and the netherworld. She shares characteristics with the Greek Athena, whose symbol was the owl and who also was a chthonic goddess. On the other hand, the window is also connected with Nabû’s consort Tašmetu. Another wife of Nabû is Nanaya, and thus Tašmetu and Nanaya must at least share aspects or be more or less identified with each other. The motif of the beautiful woman luring the perfect man to approach her is found in Jewish mysticism where the Shekhinah stands in a doorway and reveals her face only to those worthy of her. All these facts seem to make the equation Inanna/Ištar = Kilili = Nanaya = Tašmetu = the Shekhinah = the woman at the window (doorway) = a link to the divine world.
We're talking about the syncretism of Western and Eastern thought here, the Greeks had ruled Israel for several centuries and didn't give two hoots what it said in the bible, the initiative was to find common ground though few Jews accepted this.
Jesus said to them, “Why are you bothering this woman? She has done a beautiful thing to me. 11 The poor you will always have with you, but you will not always have me. When she poured this perfume on my body, she did it to prepare me for burial. Truly I tell you, wherever this gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her.
