The consultation of Judas Maccabeus and Nicanor (2 Macc 14:20-14:22)

“The terms had been fully considered. The leaders had informed the people. Thus it had appeared that they were of one mind. They then agreed to the covenant. The leaders set a day on which to meet by themselves. A chariot came forward from each army. Seats of honor were set in place. Judas Maccabeus posted armed men in readiness at key places to prevent sudden treachery on the part of the enemy. Thus they held the consultation.”

Judas Maccabeus and Nicanor had explained the agreement to their people so that they had an agreement before they met. Then they set a date to meet. In 1 Maccabees, chapter 7, there was no meeting of Nicanor and Judas Maccabeus, just the defeat of Nicanor, who took the place of Bacchides. Here there is a formal meeting and consultation as they sat in chariots with men ready to attack if things did not go well.
