Josephus: The Essential Writings

An Illustrated Edition of Jewish Antiquities and The Jewish War.
A New Translation by Paul L. Maier.

This remarkable new condensation preserves Josephus's essential writings: Jewish Antiquities and The Jewish War.

Not just another edition of William Whiston's difficult, dusty, and dated version of Josephus, but a completely new translation! Whiston is the translation found in most editions of Josephus available today and was first published in 1737.

This remarkable new translation and condensation preserves Josephus's essential writings: Jewish Antiquities and The Jewish War. Now inquiring readers can fully comprehend, appreciate, and benefit from these classic works, which shed crucial light on the Old and New Testament. The text is eminently readable, set in large, easy-to-read type, and preserves the most important content from Josephus. All significant passages are included, many word-for-word. Only non-essential or repeated sections are omitted and are noted with brackets in the text.

Apart from the Bible itself, Flavius Josephus is by far the most important historical source illuminating the entire biblical era, and for some New Testament personalities, he is an even more comprehensive source.

"Dr. Maier is an authority on Josephus and on first-century Christianity, as his earlier publications testify. I am delighted to welcome this abridged edition, which preserves the essential Josephus. I commend it warmly to all fellow students of the New Testament." ~F.F. Bruce, Emeritus Professor, University of Manchester, England.
