He has been credited by many as recording some of the earliest history of Jesus Christ outside of the gospels Josephus was a law-observant Jew who believed in the compatibility of Judaism and Graeco-Roman thought, commonly referred to as Hellenistic Judaism . His most important works were The Jewish War (c. 75 AD/CE) and Antiquities of the Jews (c. 94 AD/CE). The Jewish War recounts the Jewish revolt against Roman occupation (66–70). Antiquities of the Jews recounts the history of the world from a Jewish perspective for a Roman audience. These works provide valuable insight into first century Judaism and the background of Early Christianity

Flavius Josephus
Jewish historian, born A.D. 37, at Jerusalem ; died about 101. He belonged to a distinguished priestly family , whose paternal ancestors he himself traces back five generations; his mother's family claimed descent from the Machabeans . He received a good education , and association with distinguished scholars developed his intellectual gifts , more especially his memory and power of judgment . He also made himself fully acquainted with and tried the leading politico-religious Jewish Essenes Pharisees , and Sadducees Impressed by the outward importance of the Pharisees and hoping to secure through them a position of influence, he attached himself to their party at the age of nineteen, although he shared neither their religious nor political views. He went to Rome in the year 64 with the object of procuring from Nero the release of some imprisoned Jewish priests , who were friends of his. He succeeded in winning the favour of Sabina , the emperor's consort, and through her influence gained his cause. But he was dazzled by the brilliant court life in the metropolis of the world, that he became ever more estranged from the

Josephus on Jesus
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search This article is part of the Jesus and history series of articles. A Roman portrait bust said to be of Josephus Josephus (c.37 – 100 ), also known as Yosef Ben Matityahu (Joseph son of Matthias) and Titus Flavius Josephus , was a renowned first-century Jewish historian . Despite being a Roman apologist, his writings are considered authoritative and provide an important historical and cultural background for the era described in the New Testament . Josephus was a contemporary of the birth of early Christianity . Books 18 to 20 of the Antiquities are the most important in this regard. Josephus writes of a Jewish sect, whose leader was James the Just (a relative of Jesus). Josephus' history includes sections on John the Baptist , the High Priest Annas Pontius Pilate , and Jesus called the Messiah. There is broad scholarly consensus that the two passages referring respectively to John the Baptist, and to James the brother of Jesus are genuine. A third passage, the famous Testimonium Flavianum found in the Antiquities of the Jews 18.63-64, in its current form summarises the ministry and death of Jesus; but the authenticity of this passage remains contested by many scholars, and has been the topic of ongoing debate since the 17th century. The most widely held current scholarly opinion is that the

A Jew of priestly and royal descent, Joseph ben Matthias (or Mattathias) was put in charge of Galilee and took part in the 66 A.D. revolt against Rome. His forces overwhelmed, he surrendered to the Roman Vespasian after a seven-week siege. Joseph won the favor of Vespasian, who became emperor after Nero committed suicide. Joseph adopted the Roman name Flavius Josephus and spent his career under the patronage of Vespasian and his successors (Titus and Domitian).

Information on Josephus
Emil Schürer writes: "The best known historian of Jewish affairs in the Greek language is the Palestinian Josephus, properly Joseph, the son of Matthias, a priest of Jerusalem. Of his two chief works one is, the Ιουδαικη Αρχαιολογια, a comprehensive delineation of the entire Jewish history from the beginning to his own times. It is the most extensive work on Jewish history in the Greek language with which we are acquainted, and has on that account so retained the lasting favour of Jewish, heathen and Christian readers, as to have been preserved entire in numerous manuscripts. . . . Notwithstanding its great difference from the philosophizing delineation of Philo, its tendency is similar. For it is the purpose of Josephus, not only to instruct his heathen readers, for whom it was in the first instance intended, in the history of his people, but also to inspire them with respect for the Jewish nation, both as having a history of hoary antiquity, and a long series of celebrities both in peace and war to point to, and as able to bear comparison in respect of laws and institutions with any nation (comp. especially

Josephus - Definition
Josephus , also known as Flavius Josephus (c. ) was a 1st century Jewish historian of priestly and royal ancestry who survived and recorded the Destruction of Jerusalem in and settled in Rome . He was originally known as Yosef Ben-Matityahu Matthias in Greek). Josephus wrote an account of the war addressed to the Jewish community in Mesopotamia in the Aramaic language. He then wrote a history in Greek covering a broader period - from the Maccabees to the fall of Jerusalem. This book, Jewish War appeared by . The majority of the book is based on the events of his own life, including those of his own administrative and military experience. The Jewish Antiquities (written c. in Greek ) is a history of the Jews from the Creation to the outbreak of the war in the late . There is an autobiographical appendix defending Josephus' own conduct at the end of the war when he cooperated with the Roman forces of Vespasian and Titus Flavius . His account, while parallel to the Old Testament , is not identical to it. There has been speculation that the differences are due to Josephus' access to ancient texts (perhaps going back to Nehemiah ) which survived the destruction of the Temple. Since Josephus was close to the Roman leaders, he may have received permission to recover and retain some or all of those texts, as he indicates. On the other hand, credible arguments have been made that the

http://religiousstudies.uncc.edu/people/jtabor/cruc-josephus.html
Josephus (b. 37 C.E.) is our best literary source for the practice of crucifixion in Palestine during the Greco-Roman period. As a general in command of the Jewish forces of Galilee in the Great Revolt against Rome (66-73 C.E.), he reports his attempts to save the lives of three crucified captives by appealing directly to the Roman general Titus. One survived the cross under a physician's care, the other two could not be saved. Life 76 And when I was sent by Titus Caesar with Cerealins, and a thousand horsemen, to a certain village called Thecoa, in order to know whether it were a place fit for a camp, as I came back, I saw many captives crucified, and remembered three of them as my former acquaintance. I was very sorry at this in my mind, and went with tears in my eyes to Titus, and told him of them; so he immediately commanded them to be taken down, and to have the greatest care taken of them, in order to their recovery; yet two of them died under the physician's hands, while the third recovered. Antiquities 12: Chapter 5
The invasion of Palestine by Antiochus Epiphanies c. 167 B.C.E. giving rise to the Maccabean revolt (Channukah). Josephus graphic and bloody account mentions crucifixion not clear just what it implies in this context but certainly some kind of hanging.
