  Encyclopedia: 1 Maccabees
The contents of 1 Maccabees and 2 Macc 4-15 are in the main parallel, dealing with the same incidents; but the simple narrative character of 1 Maccabees, in contrast to the didactic and highly religious as well as supernatural coloring of 2 Maccabees, can easily be seen in these corresponding parts.
That the author of 1 Maccabees aims at giving a correct narrative, and that on the whole his account is correct, is the opinion of practically all scholars.
In 1 Macc 13:30 we read that the monument erected in 143 BC by Simon in memory of his father and brothers was standing at the time when this book was written, words implying the lapse of say 30 years at least.

 1 Maccabees - Encyclopedia, History, Geography and Biography
1 Maccabees is a deuterocanonical book of the Bible which was probably written about 100 BC, after the restoration of an independent Jewish kingdom.
The book tells the story of the conquest of Palestine by the Greeks under Alexander the Great, the attempt by the Greeks to impose Greek culture on the Jews, and the Jewish revolt against that domination.
The book covers the whole of the revolt, from 175 to 134 BC and highlights that the salvation of the Jewish people in this crisis came from God through Matthatias' family, particularly his sons Judas, Jonathan and Simon, and his grandson John Hyrcanus.

 1 maccabees
First Maccabees was originally written in Hebrew and is usually dated 100 B.C. It begins with the the reign of Antiochus IV in 175 B.C, the rebellion of Mattathias in 167 B.C. and ends with the murder of Simon in 135 B.C. and the reign of his son, John Hyrcanus I in 134 B.C..
Judas Maccabee is the central figure and the restoration of the Temple under Judas’ leadership is described as the high point of his career, the Hanukkah.
1 Maccabees is in the Catholic and Orthodox Bibles, it is the Word of God as much as Exodus, included in the canon even in two General Councils, in Florence and Trent.

The name "Maccabee" probably means "hammer" and is properly applied only to the first leader of the revolt, Judas, third son of the priest Mattathias.
Scholars infer that in the original Hebrew, the term used for "horrible abomination" would have sounded similar to "Lord of heaven", so that this term would refer to an image or altar of Zeus.
The author interprets the events not as a miraculous intervention by God, but rather God's using the instrument of the military genius of the Maccabees to achieve his ends.

 USCCB - NAB - 1maccabees - Introduction
he name Maccabee, probably meaning "hammer," is actually applied in the Books of Maccabees to only one man, Judas, third son of the priest Mattathias and first leader of the revolt against the Seleucid kings who persecuted the Jews (1 Macc 2:4, 66; 2 Macc 8:5, 16; 10:1, 16).
Salvation is paralleled with Jewish national aspirations (1 Macc 4:46-14:41), in contrast to the universal reign of God taught by Christ in the Gospel (Matthew 13:47-50; 22:1-14).
On the other hand, association, in 1 Macc 2:52, of Abraham's offering up of Isaac (Gen 22) with his justification by God (Genesis 15:6) is reflected in John 2:21, 22 just as the Scriptures are regarded as a source of consolation in 1 Macc 12:9 and in Romans 15:4.

 Notes to Lesson10: 1 Maccabees- Family of Deliverence
The story of 1 Maccabees divides neatly into three main parts: The Crises and Mattathias response to it (1.1-2.70), the exploits of Judas (3.1-9.22), and the exploits of Jonathan and Simon (9.23-12.53; 13.1-16.24).
The “crises” of Maccabees was that of Hellenization.
The rabbis were quite familiar with the story of Maccabees and we have seen that Josephus used 1 Maccabees 1-13 in writing his history of the Jews.
