“And when the book of Daniel was showed to Alexander the Great, wherein Daniel declared that one of the Greeks should destroy the empire of the Persians, he supposed that himself was the person intended.”

– Josephus, Antiquity of the Jews

 

Flavius Josephus’s most important and famous work was his historical account of the Jewish people, including this ‘Genuine Works of Flavius Josephus,’ which includes three books of the Jewish War based to a great extent on what Josephus himself saw, heard, and experienced, describing the tragic events of the Jewish revolt against Rome. This work is one of the most referenced works regarding the history and origins of the Jewish faith, providing history beyond what is found in the Bible.

 

This 1844 English edition by William Whiston is particularly desirable. He added notes and commentary to this translation that would reappear in editions throughout the 1700s and 1800s.
