Why Josephus? The Ancient Jewish Historian and the Shaping of Jewish and Christian Identity

Hosted By: Arizona State University Jewish Studies Program

A general in the Great Jewish Revolt before becoming an adviser to his erstwhile Roman enemies and thereafter a historian in Rome, Josephus Flavius (c. 37-c. 100 CE) and his writings have aroused intense interest and controversy across nearly two millennia. Whether maligned as a traitor to the Jews, celebrated as their shrewd defender, and/or even presented as a proto-Christian, Josephus—our most important source for the Jewish history of the first century C.E.—is simply indispensable. This three-part series seeks both to account for and to engage with Josephus’s ongoing fascination.
