About the Author

A member of a wealthy priestly family in Judea, Josephus was a Pharisee originally named Joseph ben Matthias. An active supporter of anti-Roman activity, he became governor of Galilee, a post he held with honor and valor until Galilee was taken by the Romans in a.d. 67. He won the favor of the mostrar mais Roman general Vespasian, whose name---Flavius---he took as his own and through whose patronage he later became a Roman citizen. Although often criticized for becoming a supporter of Rome, in his work Against Apion he passionately defends Jewish religion and culture. Josephus wrote both in Greek and in Hebrew. His writings are neither remarkably fine representatives of classical culture nor the product of deep learning in Jewish literature and history. They do, however, tell the reader a great deal not known from other sources. The Jewish War (75--79), based to a great extent on what Josephus himself saw, heard, and experienced, describes the tragic events of the Jewish revolt against Rome. Antiquities of the Jews (93) covers the history of the Jews from creation to the war with Rome, with special attention given to the Maccabees and the dynasty of Herod.

Three cheers for Josephus em Ancient History (Novembro 2011)


No source other than the Bible provides more relevant information on the first century than the works of Flavius Josephus. This first-century historian's writings take on a renewed significance and clarity in this enhanced and updated edition.

This was a very strange experience, and my intro duction the the history of the Herodian client state in Palestine during the early Roman Empire. it ends when the Jewish revolt of CE 70 begins. this excerpt starts at about the year 2 BCE and gives practically no larger context for the Herodian activities. I have retained noting of the information.

Well read, but somewhat lengthy and tedious subject matter. Still, I am pleased to have finally “read” this great classic!

The author, a first-century Jewish historian gives you a proper understanding of Jewish thought, background and history up to and around the time of Jesus Christ.
