Product Description

It took seven years and several Roman legions to suppress the Jewish rebellion of A.D. 66. Recent excavations at Masada curiously corroborate some details of Josephus' history. which so grimly evidences the turbulence of the New Testament period. In a war which was sullied by every kind of treachery and atrocity, Josephus, though a Jewish governor of Galilee, sided with the Romans.
