Josephus

( 10 )

Overview

In his preface of the book JOSEPHUS, author Norman Bentwich says that "Josephus hardly merits a place on his own account in a series of Jewish Worthies, but that the worth of his work recommends him to the attention of the Jewish people."
Even though author Bentwich has a sometimes low opinion of TITUS FLAVIUS JOSEPHUS, he strongly states that we are indebted to Josephus for a huge amount of knowledge of the first century. Josephus wrote something that has lived, says Norman ...

Overview

In his preface of the book JOSEPHUS, author Norman Bentwich says that "Josephus hardly merits a place on his own account in a series of Jewish Worthies, but that the worth of his work recommends him to the attention of the Jewish people."
Even though author Bentwich has a sometimes low opinion of TITUS FLAVIUS JOSEPHUS, he strongly states that we are indebted to Josephus for a huge amount of knowledge of the first century. Josephus wrote something that has lived, says Norman Bentwich, "...and for what he wrote, he has a niche in the literary treasure house of the Jewish people as well as in the annals of general history."
JOSEPHUS by Norman Bentwich is a book that is highly articulate and deeply researched and needs to be read by anyone interested in Jewish history, or world history during the time of Jesus Christ.

Meet the Author

Norman De Mattos Bentwich (originally Bentwitch) OBE MC (28 February 1883 - 8 April 1971) was a British barrister and legal academic best known for his work in the administration of Mandatory Palestine. During the British military administration of Palestine he served as Senior Judicial Officer, which continued in the civil administration after 1920 as Legal Secretary. The title was soon changed to Attorney-General, a post he held until 1931. A lifelong Zionist, Bentwich was close to the moderate wing of the movement. As the Arab-Jewish conflict in Palestine escalated, his presence in the mandatory government became an embarrassment to the British. In November 1929 he was slightly wounded in an assassination attempt, but recovered and conducted the defense of his would-be assassin. In 1930 he went on leave to England and a year later his appointment was terminated. From 1932 to 1951 he occupied the Chair of International Relations at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He was also President of the Jewish Historical Society.

    Sparks of Force ~ Chapter Six

    The morning came quickly. Daisy immediately felt a pang of sadness as she got up, knowing that their "One. Night." was up. She came out of the den, her fur ruffled and her ears flopped over the other side of her head. (A long shake fixed this problem.)
    <p>
    The rabbit tribe was already enjoying a mixture of delicious marigolds, dandelions, and even juicy raspberries which they had painstakingly scavenged from shrubs and bushes further back in the woods. Gray gestured for Daisy to come sit by him.
    <p>
    "Gray...uh...we're going to hafta go soon..." she said. "I know." He looked at his breakfast of raspberries and marigolds.
    <p>
    "Daisy, I was wondering....maybe....maybe I could come with you." Gray said quietly. Was he serious? "Come with me?" Daisy echoed, a little stunned.
    <p>
    Gray nodded. Yep, he was serious. "I'm worried about you. My mother was killed by a reckless teenaged human. I don't want the same to...happen to you."
    <p>
    "That's terrible..." she breathed, touched by his concern. "But...About letting you come...I would love for you to come, but Napoleon...He'd probably not let me take you with us." Daisy stuttered, still tripping over words when in front of him.
    <p>
    Gray smirked. "Let's ask him, then." He hopped around to Napoleon who was spitting out pieces of flower. "What the heck?!" He was mumbling. "They call THIS food?" Gray nosed his shoulder. "Hey, Napoleon."
    <p>
    Napoleon jumped. "Agh! What?" Gray narrowed his eyes, trying not to laugh. "Um....Daisy and I were talking, and..we were hoping that you would let me come with you.
    <p>
    Napoleon, who had tested a nibble of acorn and had it at the edge of his throat, ready to swallow, choked. "What?" He rasped.
    <p>
    "Why do you need to come?" Napoleon glared at him. He didn't like the thought of Daisy and Gray crooning and kissing and flirting like lovebirds while they had a mission. "Just stay here in your Clan Tribe thing and everybody is happy." Gray shook his head. "Noh-uh. Daisy and I...well, we've come to like each other. Leaving so soon hurts me. And her too." Daisy hopped up next to him, blushing at what Gray had just said. He was so sweet....
    <p>
    Napoleon looked at the two. "Ugh. Fine. Whatever. Gray can come. But no lovey dovey stuff." He turned away to nibble at the rest of his acorn.
    <p>
    *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
    <p>
    After breakfast, it was time to leave. Gray finished talking with Boulder, who was snapping away, and followed Daisy and Napoleon out of the woods.
    <p>
    "What kind of mission is this?" He asked Napoleon. When Napoleon said nothing, he looked at Daisy. "Well...it's a long story. We...are special. We were raised in a labratory and brought to two teenagers of the names Rhonda and Ignatius. They discovered we had secret powers. The powers come as colored sparks out of our fur and eyes and stuff. And we can talk in human language because our brains have been supercharged." Gray's eyes widened. "You never told me this!" He said, amazed. "Well...it's kind of secret." Daisy shrugged before going on. "This guy named Lord Revolution wants us because we possess powers that he could use in his experiments. The mission thing all started yesterday when we found Ignatius gone and then we were kidnapped and have GPS trackers in our heads. We need to find our headquarters before it's too late!" Gray looked intreged, then confused. "That's amazing...but I have one question. What's a 'GPS'? And what's 'headquarters?' And what's 'labratory'?"
    <p>
    Napoleon facepalmed.
