    DescriptionThe four surviving works of Flavius Josephus (38-100? A.D.) are the most important witnesses to the background to the New Testament and the life of Christ, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and the institutions of ancient Judea. This full literary and historical commentary on these works, prepared by a team of scholars under Steve Mason, draws on the mass of new archaeological data, the results of studies of the Qumran texts, and on studies of early Christianity and Judaism. It is accompanied by a new English translation of the original text.

    Review quote
    '...this series follows a format that is uncomplicated and therefore extremely user-friendly...The first two publications of the Brill Josephus Project have adequately satisfied the publisher's promise of being the first comprehensive literary-historical commentary on the works of Flavius Josephus in English...they have established a formidable, yet highly achievable standard for subsequent volumes in the series...an indispensable source of competing critical perspectives...correctly been termed an "indispensable source for all scholarly study of Judea from about 200 BCE to 75 CE"(Mason ix).' Dennis Stoutenburg, Journal of Biblical Literature/Review of Biblical Literature. '...diese Reihe sollten Benutzerinnen und Benutzer aus Judaistik, neu- und alttestamentlicher Wissenschaft und Alter Geschichte nicht nur in Bibliotheken nachschlagen, sondern m. E. fur einen privaten Kauf ernstlich erwagen...Eine Arbeit an und mit Josephustexten wird auf Jahrzehnte ohne diesen Kommentar nicht mehr denkbar sein.' Marco Frenschkowski, Theologische Literaturzeitung, 2003.
