Book Description

Antiquities of the Jews was written and published by the important Jewish historian Flavius Josephus about 93-94.

Antiquities of the Jews is a history of the Jewish people, written in Greek for Josephus' gentile patrons. Beginning with the creation of Adam and Eve, it follows the events of the historical books of the Hebrew Bible, but sometimes omits or adds information.

This work, along with Josephus's other major work, The Jewish Wars, provides valuable background material to historians wishing to understand first-century Judaism and the early Christian period.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a bargain May 4, 2009

Two problems with this edition. First, there's no table of contents - which makes browsing more difficult. Second, there are "hard returns" at the end of lines. So if you change the type size, you end up with awkward line breaks and lots of blank space. While the price is a modest 99 cents, I would have been happier paying a little more for an edition without these problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is a must August 14, 2013

If you are researching either the history of the Jewish people or confirming that Jesus in fact exist, this is the book to read and study. There are many other aspects and historical facts that have remained hidden. Josephus brings them to the open. Enjoy!
