Josephus and the New Testament, Second Edition

Product Description

The Works of Josephus are an indispensable aid in the reconstruction of the history and world of the New Testament. In Jospehus we find the Herodian family, the temple, the Pharisees, the Sadducees, and the Essenes.

In this book, Josephus and the New Testament Steve Mason introduces the reader to the Works of Jospehus, one of the most helpful ancient documents for understanding the life and times and world of Jesus and the apostles. In doing so, Mason avoids the tendencies of the past to twist Josephus into a document that answers anachronistic modern questions about early Christianity. Instead, Mason approaches the writings of the first-century Jewish historian on their own merits and within their own context before he moves on to the significance of Jospehus for New Testament study.

The second edition has been updated and expanded.

Publisher's Description

Updated text and new maps bring this standard introduction up to date.

Throughout Christian history, the works of Josephus have been mined for the light they shed on the world of the New Testament. Josephus tells us about the Herodian family, the temple, the Pharisees, the Sadducees, and the Essenes. He mentions James the brother of Jesus, John the Baptist, and even Jesus himself. In Josephus and the New Testament, an internationally acknowledged authority on Josephus introduces this first-century Jewish historian to readers who want to begin to explore his witness to the environment in which early Judaism and Christianity took shape.

    This is the "must have" intro to Josephus

    Easily read and chock full of references. Many Christians will have a hard time with Mason's insistence that the accounts found in the writings of Josephus are more reliable than the ones found in the New Testament, but if you want to learn about Josephus, this is the place to start. As a believer, I found the sheer tonnage of information learned from Mr. Mason far outweighed any problems that came with him having a different point of view.
