Publisher Description

Complete interlinked edition. Navigate easily to any book from Table of Contents
or search for the words or phrases. Includes contemporary maps, timelines,
family trees, coinage, and units of measure, as well as modern view of history
and analysis of Josephus works. Josephus fought the Romans in the First
Jewish-Roman War as a Jewish military leader in Galilee. After the the Romans
invaded, killing thousands, Josephus and one of his soldiers surrendered to the
Roman forces. He became a prisoner and provided the Romans with intelligence on
the ongoing revolt. He appears to have played some role as a negotiator with the
defenders of Jerusalem in 70. In 71, he arrived in Rome in the entourage of
Titus, becoming a Roman citizen. It was while in Rome, and under Flavian
patronage, that Josephus wrote all of his works.

The works of Josephus were studied for nearly 2,000 years by scholars,
pastors, students, and everybody interested in history. Josephus writes in
enlightened and provocative style. He offers information about individuals,
groups, customs and geographical places. His writings provide a significant,
extra-biblical account of the Maccabees, the Hasmonean dynasty and the rise of
Herod the Great. He makes references to the Sadducees, Jewish High Priests of
the time, Pharisees and Essenes, the Herodian Temple, the Zealots, and to such
figures as Pontius Pilate, Herod the Great, Agrippa I and Agrippa II, John the
Baptist, James the brother of Jesus. The Josephus' books provide the most
important contemporary reference to Jesus Christ.

The updated translations of Josephus' works by William Whiston are easy to
read and are essential to understanding of the first century Jerusalem, the time
of Christ and the New Testament.
