Overview

You are about to purchase the Complete Works of Flavius Josephus for use in your Ebook Reader device. This classic, sought-after ebook reference is over 1400 pages! In studying Judean history in the first century AD, there is no historian more important than Flavius Josephus, especially when one is interested in the study of the historical Jesus or of the world around him (the religious/social/political climate, etc.) Josephus is not only the only Jewish historian of this era to comment on Jesus, he is the only Jewish historian to thoroughly present the history as well as the psychological outlook of the Jewish people through a lengthy span of time. His works are immeasurably important to anyone interested in this particular line of study. The Complete Works of Flavius Josephus gives the reader a window into the perceptions of the world in the first century. Josephus offers information about individuals, groups, customs and geographical places. His writings provide a significant, extra-biblical account of the post-exilic period of the Maccabees, the Hasmonean dynasty and the rise of Herod the Great. He makes references to the Sadducees, Jewish High Priests of the time, Pharisees and Essenes, the Herodian Temple, Quirinius' census and the Zealots, and to such figures as Pontius Pilate, Herod the Great, Agrippa I and Agrippa II, John the Baptist, James the brother of Jesus, and a much disputed reference to Jesus Christ. He is an important source for studies of immediate post-Temple Judaism (and, thus, the context of early Christianity). The Complete Works of Flavius Josephus CD ebook contains the following: The Life of Josephus The Hades Discourse Against Apion (Books 1 & 2) Antiquities of the Jews (Books 1-20) Wars of the Jews (Books 1-8) The detailed content of this book provides a profound sense of history, and extends without an end a greater sense of it. This book acts many times as a supplement to the bible in filling important gaps that biblical history does not provide. In almost every way, Flavius Josephus is our best available source for understanding the ancient's understanding of the Bible. As such, it is essential and invaluable to any serious student.

    WTH

    I cannot read this any other way except for page by page. If I attempt to jump to another page the app freezes. If I select from the table of contents the app wont let it jump to that page and if it does, it freezes yet again.

    Highly recommend - Biblical history & culture

    I have this book in hard back. I'm thrilled to have it on my nook. It's easy to navigate and pulls up quickly. Perfect for those who enjoy Biblical archaeology and enjoy studying the customs and culture during the time of Christ.
