Antiquities of the Jews is a twenty volume work by Jewish historian Flavius Josephus. It contains an account of history of the Jewish people. In the first ten volumes, Josephus follows the events of the historical books of the Hebrew Bible beginning with the creation of Adam and Eve. The second ten volumes continue the history of the Jewish people beyond the biblical text and up to the Jewish War. Antiquities of the Jews, along with Josephus's other major work, Wars of the Jews, provides valuable background to historians wishing to understand 1st-century AD Judaism and the early Christian period. Josephus was born Jerusalem of a priestly and royal family. He excelled in his studies of Jewish law and studied with the Sadducees, Pharisees, and the Essenes, eventually aligning himself with the Pharisees. He went to Rome to free some imprisoned priests. After accomplishing this mission through the intercession of Nero's wife, Poppaea, he returned to Jerusalem to find the country in revolt against Rome. Josephus wrote a history of the Jewish War (Wars of the Jews). His second major work was Antiquities of the Jews, his third Against Apion and The Life of Josephus, his autobiography. He was an eyewitness to history, and his writings are considered authoritative.

Good product but I was expecting a hard cover book. I like the translation but it was not written for speed reading. It does allow the reader to savor what must have been the style in the original language. The letter type is small requiring good reading glasses or good vision. The footnotes at the end of given chapters are a plus, usually footnotes appear at the end of the document. I could not find a reference regarding the picture on the softcover. In brief, I just wish the publishers would have printed such a pivotal work in two or three volumes and using a larger letter type.

Someone goofed big time. There is no Josephus' Antiquities here. All you get is an introduction. It appears that the people who scanned this text failed to check up on their results. Don't waste your time. Ignore this title and chalk it up to "haste makes waste" on the part of the producers.

Don’t Purchase!!! Just Read Your Bible. I purchased thinking that a lot of real history would be contained that the Bible omitted. Not so!

This is an absolute classic in the very sense of the word. For those of you, like myself, who read and love the bible, this is an incredible book written by a man who was actually there. It gives you quite a sense of the political landscape of the period. It really answered a lot of questions I had when reading the bible. I am, however, a bit biased as I truly enjoy this time period. I've come to understand that the United States is quite similar to Rome.

This is a great companion book for Bible students and teachers who need a historical perspective on Scriptures being studied or taught. Josephus lived in the same century as Jesus, but a few years later. He had available to him many books and records that did not survive the past two thousand years.

It's a real good translation of Favian Josephus' work and it capture the story of the Jews without getting to preachy like a sermon.
Very useful history of the Jewish people. The footnotes are excellent. A must have for study of the Old Testament.
