2-0 out of 5 stars Nothing but a brief extract
This item is nothing but a mere extract of some five or ten pages, not the whole discourse at all. I suppose it's good for showing off what a Kindle -- or Kindle for PC -- can do, but as a Josephus text it's too fragmentary to be of much use or great interest. Very disappointing.

5-0 out of 5 stars The New Complete Works of Josephus
This is an amazing addition when studying both Jewish history and the history of the world. It's an excellent, informative, concise work. The price, service, and speed of delivery were exemplary and the book arrived in perfect condition.

5-0 out of 5 stars Interesting
I bought this for my Mother. I read a bit before I took it to her. I found it to be interesting not withstanding that I did not necessarily agree with his "take" on scripture.
When Christians read this they need to understand that this will not necessarily be in agreement with traditional Christian views. None the less, it is a great insight to how the Hebrew people thought.
I thought it was a very good historical view of Hebrew attitude and how it came about, at least from my Christian perspective. Knowing how people think helps to understand their reactions to others.
There were alot of good footnotes that helps Christians understand the Hebrew line of thinking.
I would recommend this highly to any one interested in history and understanding a different perspective on scripture.

1-0 out of 5 stars The New Complete Works of Josephus
Well here is the "NEW" translation of The works of Josephus. I have the 1980 edition which I guess is the old version. The 1980 version reads very nice. The print is small but I love the old english used. It gives it an ancient feel, like you are really there! I have read some of the comparisons between the old and new and already see a problem. The new one has King Saul ruling a total of 40 years. 18 years while the prophet Samuel was alive and 22 years after his death. The old version has 18 years while Samuel lived and 2 years after his death for a total of 20 years. The current Hebrew version has only that Saul reigned 2 years. Which is correct? Well, from my many years of looking into the matter it was not possible that Saul reigned only 2 years.David was a youth when he fought Goliath and Saul was king at the time. David became King when he was 30. In the bible a youth is usually mean't to apply to a male under 20 years of age but more than 3 years old. So it could mean any age from around 3 years old to & including 19 years of age. This is known from the fact that when the men of war were numbered in the desert by Moses it was done from those 20 years on up. Thus at least 11 years passed from the fight with Goliath and David becoming king at 30 years old. This is arrived at by the fact that David reigned 40 years & died at 70& thus became king at 30. Therefore, much more than just 2 years passed. It is evident that Samuel died towards the end of Saul's reign. Saul went to a woman in the town of Endor, who was able to talk to the dead, to find out if he was going to be successful against the Philistines in the upcoming battle. She contacted Samuel in the hereafter to find out whether he was going to be successful or not. Well, according to all versions of the event Samuel had not to long ago died and was buried at Rammah where he lived. The women informed Saul, through Samuel's spirit, that he and his sons would lose the battle and die. Well he and his sons did in fact die in battle on Mt. Gilboa the next day. There was also many other events which took place that could not have all occurred within just 2 years. The Hebrew bible we have today only has a 2 year reign. There was probably a scribal error made when it was copied later on. It really was that 'Saul reigned 2 years [after Samuel's death and 18 with him]. The second half was somehow left out. The 40 year reign just does notfit into the time span of events and is way too long. So forget about the 40 year reign of Saul as stated in the new addition of Josephus. I would stick with the old version. I have found it to be fairly accurate in reference to the Old Testament !

Product Description
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. ...

Product Description
You are about to purchase the Complete Works of Flavius Josephus delivered right into your Kindle! This classic, sought-after ebook is over 1400 pages.In studying Judean history in the first century AD, there is no historian more important than Josephus, especially when one is interested in the study of the historical Jesus or of the world around him (the religious/social/political climate, etc.) Josephus is not only the only Jewish historian of this era to comment on Jesus, he is the only Jewish historian to thoroughly present the history as well as the psychological outlook of the Jews through a lengthy span of time. His works are immeasurably important to anyone interested in this line of study.The works of Josephus give a reader a window into the perceptions of the world in the first century. Josephus offers information about individuals, groups, customs and geographical places. His writings provide a significant, extra-biblical account of the post-exilic period of the Maccabees, the Hasmonean dynasty and the rise of Herod the Great. He makes references to the Sadducees, Jewish High Priests of the time, Pharisees and Essenes, the Herodian Temple, Quirinius' census and the Zealots, and to such figures as Pontius Pilate, Herod the Great, Agrippa I and Agrippa II, John the Baptist, James the brother of Jesus, and a much disputed reference to Jesus Christ. He is an important source for studies of immediate post-Temple Judaism (and, thus, the context of early Christianity).The Complete Works of Flavius Josephuscontains the following:The Life of JosephusThe Hades DiscourseAgainst Apion (Books 1 & 2)Antiquities of the Jews (Books 1-20)Wars of the Jews (Books 1-8)The content of this work provides a profound sense of history, and extends without an end a greater sense of it. This book acts many times as a supplement to the bible in filling important gaps that biblical history does not provide. In almost every way, Josephus is our best available source for understanding the ancient's understanding of the Bible. As such, it is essential and invaluable to any serious student. ... Read more

Product Description
Josephus' account of a war marked by treachery and atrocity is a superbly detailed and evocative record of the Jewish rebellion against Rome between AD 66 and 70. Originally a rebel leader, Josephus changed sides after he was captured to become a Rome-appointed negotiator, and so was uniquely placed to observe these turbulent events, from the siege of Jerusalem to the final heroic resistance and mass suicides at Masada. His account provides much of what we know about the history of the Jews under Roman rule, with vivid portraits of such key figures as the Emperor Vespasian and Herod the Great. Often self-justifying and divided in its loyalties, "The Jewish War" nevertheless remains one of the most immediate accounts of war, its heroism and its horrors, ever written. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Jewish War
The Jewish War by Flavious Josephus is an excellent read about the beginings of Roman rule in the Middle East to the Jewish War of 66-67 AD.The Penguin Classics edition is a well translated, lade out and well edited edition of Josephus's discription of events.It is a wealth of information for anyone who wants to learn about the First Jewish War.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent translation..
Josephus was a traitor,yes,and he was not an eyewitness to it all. His sources were an invaluable help to him in writing this account.And once again the Jewish people get short shrift. Yet this book is a necessary evil and should be read,not on its own,but with other sources for a rounded history. Everything we read can be put together like a jigsaw puzzle providing us with the insights needed to understand the Middle East today.

4-0 out of 5 stars A tale of horror for the Jewish people
This tells the story of the terrible tragedy of the fall of Jerusalem, and the end of Jewish rule in the holy- land. It is written by the Jewish general and turncoat Josephus whose powerful skills as historian are compromised by his questionable behavior in regard to his own people.
Josephus does sympathize with the Jewish people, and writes as their defender. But he is also the hireling of the Romans and is careful to present them in an overly sympathetic light.
This is one of the great historical works of Antiquity. It is a classic.
And yet what mixed feelings it arouses . Admiration at Josephus' skill as writer , admiration for his attempting to bring credit and praise to the Jewish people, or some part of it- and contempt for his treachery.
This work contains too the scene of Masada's fall and the powerful speech of its last defenders before their collective suicide.
This is a crucial historical document.
But the tale it tells is a tale of horror for the Jewish people. ... Read more

What more can be said about this work.If you are interested at all about the history of the Roman Empire and Jewish history during the time of Christ, this is the book to read.It gives insite to what the people at that time were experiencing.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Alongside of the Holy Bible
This book contains a comprehensive set of information with respect to Jewish history. Actually it starts off with its own account of creation, which runs in parallel with the Book of Genesis.

This book is not to be read like a novel, but it is to be used as a reference guide. It fills in and provides additional information, so that events recorded in the Old Testament of the Holy Bible can be better understood. I recommend it for anyone who is interested in preaching/teaching messages from the Old Testament. It will enable you to add more depth to your messages.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good for those intersted in improving their knowledge of history for Bible Study
This book compiles the complete Works of Josephus including, Life of Flavius Josephus, War of the Jew, Antiquities of the Jews, Against Apion, and Discourse to the Greeks, all in one book. It is convenient to have it all together in one book, but it is big and heavy at 800 pages. I learned about this book in my bible study class, and it has been a good resource for understanding the time period of the life of Jesus better. If you do not know who he was, Josephus was a Jewish historian and a Pharissee during the 1st Century AD.It has useful cross-references and citations. The book Antiquities is the only one in this that delves into the Old Testament. He was considered by some a traitor for his work for the Romans, who sacked Jerusalem just 70 years after the the death of Jesus. So you have to keep that conflict in mind as you read his works. But he is honest about the internal fighting of the Jews.


3-0 out of 5 stars Dry read, but informative
I use it more as a reference book to look up specific events. I don't have the fortitude to read it end to end. Interesting, nonetheless.

5-0 out of 5 stars Translation for the lay historian
Some translations of Josephus are twice the size of the bible. Not so with "Josephus: The Essential Works by Flavius Josephus, Paul L. Maier." It's easy to understand, filled with maps and illustrations, and interesting enough to read like a novel. I keep it handy as a reference guide and use it alongside other study materials to help me make sense of Jewish history. Written for the layman, I have compared sections with the unabridged versions and found the translation to be simple, yet complete.

4-0 out of 5 stars Educational
Having read the complete Bible in the past, reading the works of Josephus helped put some of the events in the old testament into better perspective and opened the door to some new thinking and understanding.
Not particularly an easy read, but then reading the Bible has always been challenging and Josephus' version as put together by the author Paul Maier is challenging as well and very educational.

4-0 out of 5 stars Your Choice
I have long owned a translation by Thackeray of the complete works of Josephus in nine volumes from the Loeb Classical Library.Later, I purchased this abridgement and translation by Paul L. Maier of Flavius Josephus' "Jewish Antiquities" and "The Jewish War" which will be useful to many. Please note, this book is available in a 1990 edition and a 1995 edition.Recently, I obtained a copy of "The New Complete Works of Josephus," with Maier as commentator and editor published in 1999.So, in large measure the question I will try to answer here is, who will be served by owning one or the other of these books.With one exception, I no longer recommend the Loeb series as they are superseded in my opinion by Maier's "new complete works."The exception would be for a scholar using these works for research where the multiple volumes format is very convenient albeit expensive.The "essential works" come in at four hundred and sixteen pages of easy to read prose.The "new complete works" is eleven hundred and fifty two pages long.Substantial extra material including Josephus's "Against Apion" and "Vita" are included along with useful commentary by Maier.The translation is the original to English by William Whiston from the 18th Century.However, Maier has brought it linguistically and grammatically up to date which makes it accessible to most readers.

Josephus is by far our most important ancient source outside of the Bible regarding the history of Judaism and the Israelites up until the end of the first great Jewish Revolt circa 70 CE.On the one hand, if what you are looking for is a narrative history that parallels the Bible through the Babylonian captivity plus a basic history of Judea thereafter up to about 70 CE including Judea's interactions with the Hellenistic Empires and the Roman Empire, the "essential works" should suffice.On the other hand, if you need to back check Josephus against other scholarly works or need substantially more detail in either the pre or post exilic eras, the "complete works" ought to be your choice.In the event that you do not accept the Bible as a reliable source of the pre-exilic history of Israel, the first two hundred pages of the "essential works" may amount to, at worst in the opinion of some readers, no more than a paraphrased rendition of sacral mythology.

That many if not most still view the Old Testament as an accurate presentation of history from the creation up to the Babylonian exile and the return should be self evident.Therefore, if you subscribe to the position that the Old Testament is historically relevant and you need to fill in the blanks from the exile to the end of the first great Jewish revolt against the Romans, the "essential works" will be an invaluable read.If your interests are scholarly in any way, the "new complete works" is mandatory.The "essential works" will be way too stripped out of detail to serve as a useful reference source.Furthermore, the extra material and commentary in the "new complete works" may provide you with a fuller appreciation of Josephus and his place in historiography.Regardless of which of the two books you choose to suit your purposes, you will be reading the work of a fine scholar and a most significant ancient historian.In my opinion, each work will be edifying to its appropriate audience.Just make sure you pick the right book to fit your needs.

2-0 out of 5 stars 3rd Grade Reading Level and Biased
After reading 100 pages in about ten minutes, I wondered if Josephus really wrote as if he were a child.ie: Jack was a man.He lived in a house.He had a wife.He did something.Then, Jack died.Now replace Jack with Adam, Noah, Moses, Isaac, etc.The translator/editor takes far too much liberty with his abridgement and translation.I bought the unabridge version afterward.The writing in the full version is still easy to read and follow, but it gives a much more detailed and fuller story telling.I realize that the original is very long, and editing was necessary for this book.But, the sentence and paragraph structure was dumbed down too much.Also, the current editor adds too much correlation to Jesus.He may be unaware of this, but not all readers are Christian.I bought the book for Josephus' telling of Jewish history (as the title of Josephus' major works would indicate).Not Paul Maier's idea of what is important in Josephus' landmark undertaking.
I would recommend this book to a Christian parent who may want to supplment a child's reading of Biblical stories.I would not recommend this to an adult who is interested in expanding their knowledge of Biblical history.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best translation ever of Josephus for normal people
The works of Josephus are the most important writings we have to understand the background and history of the Bible. Yet, trying to read Josephus' wordy prose is one of the most excruciating experiences I ever encountered.

Dr. Maier's translation and commentary on Josephus is one of 3 modern translations I own, but is the only one I have used for the last 5 years. It brought Josephus to life for me and allowed me to read and understand this valuable primary source.

Dr. Maier's work is generously accented with maps and illustrations and features a translation of Josephus that is abridged and therefore readable. Dr. Maier can be trusted to weed out the useless verbosity of the original text, as he is a leading scholar on early Roman Imperial history.

Sell your other versions of Josephus and buy this one and then you may actually start to use Josephus to accent your study of the Bible. ... Read more

I wrongly assumed by the title of this book that all of the information would be there.Unfortunately, I found missing chapters and paragraphs in the Jewish Wars section.Although beautifully done this book will be returned.I'd rather have a truthful complete work written on recycled cardboard than an incomplete immitation gold edged dust collector.

4-0 out of 5 stars Josephus for Myself
For decades I've heard pastors or Bible teachers reference the Jewish historian, Josephus. But he was as legendary and unknowable as characters in the Bible. Now this book gives me my OWN insight into Josephus and history of the first-century Christian church. Not an easy read, but a tome every Christian should have in his or her library. Beautifully presented by Attic Books.

5-0 out of 5 stars Josephus
This was a new book on a research topic, that I have wanted for a price I could not turn down.Even with shipping it was $5 below the lowest price I could find in discount book stores.A very satisfied customer.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must read for Bible students
If we want to know more about the history of the Jews and events at the time of Jesus from a secular Jew's writings, you must read Josephus.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good book
This book is excellent, but it is on a doctoral level.Not recommended for young people.

5-0 out of 5 stars thorough
Instead of reading through alot of Old English interpretation and opinion, the facts here are presented straightforward, clear and easy to read for the average reader. The pictures help immensely as they transports you to the era. Still, the book is thorough and stuffed with facts, historical, personal and cultural. A great buy for anyone interested in this period.

5-0 out of 5 stars A SUCCINCT SUMMARY OF JOSEPHUS
For most people, such as myself, reading all of Josephus' Antiquities and The Jewish War is a daunting and time-consuming task.This book does a wonderful job of summarizing both of these important works in under 400 pages.It's easy reading and the footnotes and timelines added by Mr. Maier are helpful.If you want to learn about ancient Hebrews and Israelites as well as the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans(which Josephus witnessed)then this is your book without reading the complete and voluminous works of Josephus then here's your book.

I should note that the majority of Antiquities paraphrases what is already found in the Old Testament, which is common knowledge to scholars in this subject. ... Read more

Product Description
The four surviving works of Flavius Josephus (38-100? A.D.) are the most important witnesses to the background to the New Testament and the life of Christ, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and the institutions of ancient Judea. This full literary and historical commentary on these works, prepared by a team of scholars under Steve Mason, draws on the mass of new archaeological data, the results of studies of the Qumran texts, and on studies of early Christianity and Judaism. It is accompanied by a new English translation of the original text. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Definitive Josephus
Most will want to compare this edition to the Loeb Classics version. Loeb offers facing page Greek text, which this edition does not. However, since I don't read Greek, this was not a problem. Whereas Loeb carries a modicum of footnotes explaining disputed points, theBrilledition is about 75% commentary, contained inextensive andenlightening footnote/essays on every page. The general introduction toJosephus as well as the introduction to Antiquities in particular hassomething to say to both novice andthe reader familiar with Josephanscholarship. My own interest is in the War and the Life, which will not beprinted for a few years. So I ordered Antiquities to see whether theproject was worthwhile for future reference. I will have no hestiation inordering other volumes as they become available.Louis Feldman's masterfulcommentary is a compendium of current scholarship on Josephus' rendition ofthe Old Testament. Even Books III, which concern matters of Jewish law,chiefly as concerns ritual and observance, but also social strictures, wereenlivened and made relevant to Josephus' aims and historical context by Dr.Feldman's expert insights. The indices key on ancient texts,including theTorah, Rabbinical commentary (Midrash) and parallel relevant Greek andRoman historical works, plus persons, places, and modern authors. Icompared the translation of the opening paragraph to the same passage inthe Loeb. The differences are quite interesting and clearly show how Dr.Feldman and his colleagues picked up nuances from the original thatThackeray (the Loeb translator) had missed. I unhesitatinglyrecommendthis edition. Of course the entire set will be prohibitively costly.University libraries will carry them no doubt. However if you are intrigued with Josephus, as I am, you will want to own some selectedvolumes. This is truly a work of reference to which I will return again andagain. ... Read more
