Explore the history of first century Jews from the eyewitness account of Flavius Josephus, legendary Jewish historian. His extra-biblical account offers fascinating historical context to enhance your study of primeval Jewish, Christian, and Roman history. Within this stunning, six book compilation is an invaluable narrative filling in the gaps of otherwise unknown cultural and political details of Israel’s ancient civilization.
Flavius Josephus counseled Pharisees on Jewish law from a very early age. His perspective of the Jewish Roman war is truly unique. Josephus scandalously survived the destruction of Jerusalem, became Roman, and was later despised by Jews as a traitor. Yet he is the acclaimed historian of this critical era of Christian history answering questions you didn’t know you needed to ask.
This beautifully bound hardcover edition of our earliest history has the look and feel of antiquity. It is an exquisite reproduction of an original, circa – 1850 printing. The thick, crisp, parchment-like paper, vintage font, page layout and drawings offer you the feeling of an authentic rare book in your hands. Could any library be complete without it?
The Complete Works of Flavius Josephus, the Jewish Historian as translated by William Whiston includes:
- Antiquities of the Jews
- History of the Jewish Wars
- Sequel to the History of the Jewish Wars

The first church historian, Eusebius, calls Flavius Josephus “the most famous Jew of his time.” His writings provide us with prized details that did not survive in any other records. Your study of his exceptional assessment of Israel’s history will bring critical insight to the last two millennia of world events.
