Item Description...
This renowned reference book has served scholars, pastors, students, and those interested in the background of the New Testament for years. The insight given into the Essene community, the destruction of Jerusalem and the interpretations and traditions of the Old Testament in first century Judaism is invaluable. The outlook of Josephus, a late first century Pharisee and historian, on Jesus and the New Testament documents is enlightening and provocative. As an original reference, The Works of Josephus is essential to a full understanding of the first century, the time of Christ and the New Testament.

Complete and unabridged, this is the best one-volume edition of the classic translation of Josephus' works. The entire text has been reset in modern, easy-to-read type; numbering corresponding to that used in the Loeb edition has been added to the text; and citations and cross-references have been updated from Roman numerals to Arabic numbers.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great source of information  Mar 8, 2007
Josephus is a great source for information about Biblical times. The format is similar to the Bible, but the language is not quite as clear as most of the common translations. I would recommend it as a historical companion to Biblical study.
 
Great Translation  Feb 8, 2007
This reads pretty well for someone who is interested in actually reading what Josephus wrote which was my goal. I highly suggest it.
 
The Works of Josephus  Jan 9, 2007
This is an essential work for understanding the political dynamics of Roman Palestine in New Testament times, and is one of the very few contemporary accounts that we have on the subject. It appears to be as comprehensive an edition as its title indicates, and the translation is accurate and thorough. Its one drawback is the difficulty of reading the fine print--a necessary compromise for a one-volume edition.
 
Absolute Must for Scholar and Student  Jan 9, 2007
Josephus is a work that must be read and understood if one is to understand First Century Jewish life and thought. Josephus was a historian that was captured by the Romans, particularly by the Roman General Vespasian and Titus, both at the time were to be future Ceasars of of Rome. Josephus worked as a historian afterwards and told the story of the Jews. The most important contribution of Josephus comes in "The Wars of the Jews" in which he describes the siege and destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple in 70 AD. Also, much is owed to understanding the lives of the emporers of Rome and Herod and his sons. If you are going to get a grasp on the history in the New Testament you have to have Josephus. If it were not for his writings much important history would not be known. Every student and scholar should have and read a copy of Josephus. I recommend the transaltion by William Winston in the hardback edition.
 
Good history of Jews and their wars  Jan 5, 2007
A good reference book. However, there are many typos in this edition. The proofreader must have been on vacation.
