In The Complete Works you will discover what the New Testament writers knew about Abraham, Moses, Samuel, David, and Solomon.  Examine an in-depth history of Herod and his infamous family.

Josephus left us the earliest independent accounts of the lives of Jesus, John the Baptist, and James the brother of Jesus. Much of what we know about the beliefs of the Sadducees and Pharisees comes from The Complete Works. Without Josephus, we would know very little about the Essenes, the ancient Jewish group most frequently associated with the Dead Sea Scrolls.

This unabridged collection includes:

  • The War of the Jews - an account of the Jewish revolt against Rome up to the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem
