No source, besides the Bible itself, provides us with as much information and history about the first century than the writings of Flavius Josephus. Josephus was born to an aristocratic Jewish family in 37 A.D., and served as a general in the battle against Rome that began in A.D. 66. Josephus witnessed the fall of Jerusalem in A.D. 70, and after being captured by the Romans, accepted a position with them, and eventually wrote down the events surrounding this period of history before his death in A. D. 100.
This edition was translated by William Whiston (1662—1752) and the language has been updated for today's readers. Helpful commentary by Paul L. Maier and over 40 photos of ancient sites will help you glean the most from this classical work.
