Antiquities of the Jews

by Flavius Josephus
Translator: William Whiston


Antiquities of the Jews is a 20-volume historiographical work by historian Flavius Josephus in the 13th year of the reign of Roman emperor Flavius Domitian which was around AD 93 or 94. Antiquities of the Jews contains an account of history of the Jewish people for Josephus' gentile patrons. In the first ten volumes, Josephus follows the events of the Hebrew Bible beginning with the creation of Adam and Eve. 
The second ten volumes continues the history of the Jewish people beyond the biblical text and up to the Jewish War, or the First Jewish–Roman War, 66 to 73 CE. This work, along with Josephus's other major work, The Wars of the Jews, provides valuable background material for historians wishing to understand 1st-century AD Judaism and the early Christian period.
