Dear Liz,

>You're forgetting the high priest, always the anointed leader of his people.(e.g. Lev. 8:12).It is probably Onias III or Simon II (the one described in Ben Sira). SimonII is credited with restoring Jerusalem. Onias III is cut off and has nothing.The troops destroying the sanctuary are those of Antiochus IV.

HH: The events described are 483  years after the decree of Cyrus or a 
successor regarding the rebuilding of Jerusalem. So it is way after the 
time of Onias.

Yours,
Harold Holmyard
