Antiquities; Wars ; Autobiography; Against Apion. also a treatise on Hades. These books took me several months to finish as I mostly read them at night on the Kindle and I would fall asleep. Kindle projected 60 hours.
.... It took longer. Esteemed as the quintessential historian of the first century, Josephus is cited by virtually every author who had written about the Jews since his time. The translator provides excellent footnotes explaining difficult parts. ( )

You want to go deeper, understand, and immerse yourself in the Jewish history, culture, and community of Jesus. Let Josephus: The Complete Works open your eyes. Flavius Josephus—first-century Pharisee, Jewish historian, Roman consultant, and writer, documented aspects of life during the time of Christ, giving us extensive writings on ancient Jewish history in existence. By studying Josephus’ works, readers gain a behind-the-scenes look at biblical figures including Abraham, Moses, John the Baptist, and James the brother of Jesus, plus insights into the Dead Sea Scrolls community, Sadducees and Pharisees, the War of the Jews, and beyond.

Features include:

The War of the Jews—an account of the Jewish revolt against Rome up to the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem
The Antiquities of the Jews—a history of the Jews from Creation to the Roman occupation of Palestine
The Life of Flavius Josephus—the autobiography of Josephus, who fought against Rome and later served the empire
Against Apion—a defense of the origin of Judaism in the face of Greco-Roman slanders
Discourse to the Greeks Concerning Hades—a text Whiston attributed to Josephus
Index of parallels between Josephus’s Antiquities and the Old Testament including the Apocrypha
About Flavius Josephus

Josephus was a first-century Pharisee, soldier, informant to the Romans, and writer. He left behind the most extensive writings on ancient Jewish history still in existence.

This renowned reference book has served scholars, pastors, students, and those interested in the background of the New Testament for years. The insight given into the Essene community, the destruction of Jerusalem and the interpretations and traditions of the Old Testament in first century Judaism is invaluable. The outlook of Josephus, a late first century Pharisee and historian, on Jesus and the New Testament documents is enlightening and provocative. As an original reference, "The Works of Josephus" is essential to a full understanding of the first century, the time of Christ and the New Testament.Complete and unabridged, this is the best one-volume edition of the classic translation of Josephus' works. The entire text has been reset in modern, easy-to-read type; numbering corresponding to that used in the Loeb edition has been added to the text; and citations and cross-references have been updated from Roman numerals to Arabic numbers.
