Includes the earliest independent accounts of Jesus' life; insight into the beliefs of the Sadducees and Pharisees; an account of the Jewish revolt against Rome; an index of parallels between Josephus's Antiquities and the Old Testament; and more. 1149 pages, hardcover from Nelson.
Encounter the world and traditions that Jesus knew. Illuminate your understanding of the New Testament. In The Complete Works you will discover what the New Testament writers knew about Abraham, Moses, Samuel, David, and Solomon and examine an in-depth history of Herod and his infamous family.
Josephus left us the earliest independent accounts of the lives of Jesus, John the Baptist, and James the brother of Jesus. Much of what we know about the beliefs of the Sadducees and Pharisees comes from Josephus. Without Josephus, we would know very little about the Essenes, the ancient Jewish group most frequently associated with the Dead Sea Scrolls.
