What happened between the Old and New Testament?

I created this timeline to teach the events of Second Temple Judaism, the time between the return from the Babylonian exile and the destruction of the 2nd temple by the Romans in 70 CE. It is based primarily on the material in Oskar Skarsaune, In the Shadow of the Temple (Downers Grove: InterVarsity, 2002), 28, 55, but I have also added some other elements that I thought were relevant. Each event (or at least most of them) also have links to articles and videos with more information, and some just for fun.
