It is interesting to note that King David, one of the greatest figures in Judaic tradition, possibly had at least two non-Jewish mothers as ancestors. Then, in AD 315, another edict allowed the burning of Jews if they were convicted of breaking the laws. Yeshua is going to come back and judge everyone who has ever lived. The first large-scale conversions were by John Hyrcanus and Aristobulus, who, in 130 and 103 BCE, respectively, forced the people of Idumaea in southern Palestine and of Ituraea in northern Palestine to become Jews.
