The conflict is sometimes known today as the Third Jewish-Roman War of the Third Jewish Revolt.
According to the World History Encyclopedia, the Bar Kokhba revolt was different from the other two conflicts in that it presented a more unified Jewish front.
The Jews were led in the conflict by the military leader Simon Bar Kokhba, who some even considered to be the Jewish Messiah.
Although the initial stages of the war saw some success for the rebels, the might of the Roman Empire eventually shattered all resistance.
As a consequence of the conflict, thousands of Jews were killed, enslaved or driven out of Judea.
