Book Description

THE COLLECTED WORKS OF JOSEPHUS contains the five extant works of Romano-Jewish historian Titus Flavius Josephus. Collectively, the works of Josephus provide valuable insight into Jewish history, priestly and royal ancestry, Jewish hagiography, the first Jewish-Roman war, and the destruction of Jerusalem. Josephus also provides some of the earliest history of Jesus Christ outside of the gospels as well as insights into first century Judaism and early Christianity. Includes extensive footnoting and active tables of contents for easy navigation.

• The Wars of the Jews
• Josephus’ Discourse to the Greeks Concerning Hades
• The Antiquities of the Jews
• Against Apion
• The Life of Flavius Josephus

Titus Flavius Josephus (born Joseph ben Mattathias) (37-c.100 A.D.) was a law-observant Jew born and raised in Jerusalem. Through his mother, he descended from the former Hasmonean rulers of Judea. Josephus fought against the Romans in the First Jewish-Roman War. After being captured by the Romans, Josephus was pardoned and became a Roman citizen. He wrote all of his works in Rome under Roman patronage.

Have been interested in objective review of the history of the early Christian era. Too bad it's not paperback and less expensive.

Very informative, and helpful for a good background in history, however I found it a bit difficult to read, in other words not easy flowing.
