Jewish history (or the history of the Jewish people) is the history of the Jews, and their religion and culture, as it developed and interacted with other peoples, religions and cultures. Although Judaism as a religion appears in Greek records first during the Hellenistic period and the earliest mention of "Israel" is inscribed on the Merneptah Stele dated 1213-1203 BCE, the Hebrew Bible tells the story of a period of Babylonian captivity, a destruction of a First Temple, and the ancient Israelites going back at least as far as c. 1500 BCE.
