Erich S. Gruen, the author of “Hellenism and Persecution: Antiochus IV and the Jews,” considered theories of scholars about the reasons Antiochus IV may have had for imposing his notorious hellenisation policies upon the Jews, although under previous Seleucid rule, the Jews had been treated with favour. Gruen’s paper is included in “Hellenistic History and Culture,” edited by Peter Green. [Green, Peter, editor. Hellenistic History and Culture.

The three and a half years of no rain in the days of Elijah is a type and a figure representing the present age of the Church, or a portion of it. This is represented by a symbolic three years and a half, and the ‘time, times and a half’ of Daniel 7:25 and 12:7, and related prophetic time periods.

Charles D. Alexander discussed the flood that the serpent cast out
of his mouth to carry away the woman, who represents the church, in his
Spiritually Understood Part 16: The Woman In The Wilderness.
And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman,
that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth
helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the
flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.
