The Bar Kokhba revolt (132–136 CE )was the third major rebellion by the Jews against the Roman Empire and last of the Jewish-Roman Wars. Simon bar Kokhba, the commander of the revolt, was acclaimed as a Messiah, who could restore Israel. The revolt established an independent state of Israel for over two years, but the Romans finally crushed it. They then barred Jews from Jerusalem. Although Jewish Christians hailed Jesus as the Messiah, not supporting Bar Kokhba, they were barred as well.
