"Steve Mason and his team assembled by Brill are to be commended on their effort in this daunting and consuming project." - Shawn C. Madden, in: Faith & Mission (2005)
This volume provides a new English translation of and commentary on Josephus' Judean Antiquities 5-7 in which he retells the history of Israel from the entry into the land down to the death of King David. The commentary devotes special attention to the ways in which Josephus deals with the data of his biblical sources, i.e. the Books of Joshua, Judges, Ruth, Samuel, and 1 Chronicles. It likewise looks to the question of the biblical text-forms used by Josephus and calls attention to Jewish and Greco-Roman parallels to his presentation. The book is intended primarily for biblicists and scholars of ancient Judaism.
