Full description for Flavius Josephus: Antiquities 1-4 v. 3
The four surviving works of Flavius Josephus (38-100? A.D.) are the most important witnesses to the background to the New Testament and the life of Christ, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and the institutions of ancient Judea. This full literary and historical commentary on these works, prepared by a team of scholars under Steve Mason, draws on the mass of new archaeological data, the results of studies of the Qumran texts, and on studies of early Christianity and Judaism. It is accompanied by a new English translation of the original text.
