This course is a remarkable new translation and condensation of the Jewish Antiquities, and the Jewish War. Apart from the Bible itself, Flavius Josephus is by far the most important historical source illuminating the entire biblical era, and for some New Testament personalities. For the first time students of the old and New Testament can fully comprehend, appreciate, and benefit from these classic works, which shed much crucial light on the period. All significant passages are included, many word-for-word. Dr. Paul Maier is an authority on Josephus and on first century Christianity.
