"Book of Judith (Foreword) Latin American Catholic Bible"
We will not use much time to show that this whole story is a fiction. From the first verse speaks of Nebuchadnezzar, king of Assyria, while he was king of Babylon and Assyria crushed. The speeches of his general Holofernes are caricatures out of all reality, and every moment are anachronisms.
But, having said this, it is clear that the author wants to remind permanent truth of the story: God is against oppressive powers and always holds its own plan.
What stimulated the author and explains the character of this new presentation of the victories of God, seems to have been the heroic resistance against the invading Syrians time of the Maccabees. The victory of Judith expresses the hopes of the Jewish people after all these years so hard that restored after more than three centuries, their independence.
.... David and Goliath: the super-armed and weak, which has the technical, sophisticated weapons and international banks, which can spread and impose their truth through the world ... And the weak, always stripped, silenced, had as guilty, often segregated in reserves and refugee camps. His faith and perseverance be your strength (Lk 18:1). There will be a time for God, but maybe not the revenge and massacres with which the author dreamed of Judith. For history's reins are in the hands of the crucified and resurrected, and all will be saved even though they do not know what can be the salvation to which God leads.
