"Right. But a hereditary priesthood complicates things. Back before the Maccabees, the High Priest Jason was a total sellout to the Hellenists, but he was High Priest. There wasn't a lot we could do about it. Other than civil war, I mean."

Jason did not inherit his position. He bought it from Ephipanes.

Which we did, and then appointed a new high priest line not from the "right family".

Are you kidding? No, they were also from the right family. Jason was either Judah's first cousin or great uncle, depending on which Chonyo Jason's brother was.

The Hasmoneans were NOT from the right family. If they were, the Dead Sea nuts wouldn't have gone on and on about it. They were nuts, but not stupid. The Hasmoneans were not of the house of Chonyo.

Yes, they were. The Qumran cult never said the first word about Hasmoneans. Sheesh.
