New Complete Works of Josephus. The
No source, other than the Bible itself, provides more relevant information on the first century than the works of Flavius Josephus. Flavius Josephus was born to an aristocratic Jewish family, served as a priest and later became the commander of Jewish forces in Galilee following the revolt against Rome that began A.D. 66. Captured by the Romans, Josephus spent his later life in Rome under the patronage of the Roman emperors where he composed his history of the Jewish people and this account of the Jewish war that led to the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple in A.D. 70.
This Complete Works of Josephus offers text that updates the 18th century language of the Whiston translation, using modern vocabulary and spellings in all five complete and unabridged works.
