Antiquities of the Jews was a work published by the important Jewish historian Flavius Josephus about the year 93 or 94. It is a history of the Jewish people, written in Greek for Josephus' gentile patrons. Beginning with the creation of Adam and Eve, it follows the events of the historical books of the Hebrew Bible, but sometimes omits or adds information.

Unfortunately, Josephus’ talents as a writer are, sh The Antiquities of the Jews is a long, long description . Josephus’ style is uninspired in my opinion, although the 18th century translation by William Whiston probably isn’t doing him any favors.

Josephus’ style is uninspired in my opinion, although the 18th century translation by William Whiston probably isn’t doing him any favors. An important historical document, invaluable for our understanding of Judea from the end of biblical times to the first century, but not a particularly fun read.

The ambitious later work of the Jewish historian and Roman citizen Flavius Josephus, "Antiquities of the Jews" is a work of twenty volumes that gives a massive account of Jewish culture, law, custom, and history over time. Beginning with the biblical creation of Adam and Eve, Josephus then writes of Abraham teaching Egyptians science, going through most of the great biblical figures and presenting them as philosophizing leaders of their times. Though some are omitted while others are added, Josephus ends only with the Jewish people living under the Roman emperor Flavius Domitian of his own day, around the year 96 AD. The author additionally enters into philosophical debates of his day, ultimately offering an apologia for the Jewish people's antiquity and significance. This text is also of significance for its reference to Jesus, the earliest known Jewish source citing his existence. Overall, "Antiquities of the Jews" provides historians with valuable and reliable material concerning Jewish history, the early Christian period, and Judaism's place in that Roman world.

Good product but I was expecting a hard cover book. I like the translation but it was not written for speed reading. It does allow the reader to savor what must have been the style in the original language. The letter type is small requiring good reading glasses or good vision. The footnotes at the end of given chapters are a plus, usually footnotes appear at the end of the document. I could not find a reference regarding the picture on the softcover. In brief, I just wish the publishers would have printed such a pivotal work in two or three volumes and using a larger letter type.

Someone goofed big time. There is no Josephus' Antiquities here. All you get is an introduction. It appears that the people who scanned this text failed to check up on their results. Don't waste your time. Ignore this title and chalk it up to "haste makes waste" on the part of the producers.

Don’t Purchase!!! Just Read Your Bible. I purchased thinking that a lot of real history would be contained that the Bible omitted. Not so!

This is an absolute classic in the very sense of the word. For those of you, like myself, who read and love the bible, this is an incredible book written by a man who was actually there. It gives you quite a sense of the political landscape of the period. It really answered a lot of questions I had when reading the bible. I am, however, a bit biased as I truly enjoy this time period. I've come to understand that the United States is quite similar to Rome.

Great book - am learning a lot from reading this.

This is a great companion book for Bible students and teachers who need a historical perspective on Scriptures being studied or taught. Josephus lived in the same century as Jesus, but a few years later. He had available to him many books and records that did not survive the past two thousand years.

It's a real good translation of Favian Josephus' work and it capture the story of the Jews without getting to preachy like a sermon.
Very useful history of the Jewish people. The footnotes are excellent. A must have for study of the Old Testament.
