Chapter Summary

This chapter examines how and to what extent Josephus used the Septuagint as one of his sources in his second great work, The Antiquities of the Jews (Ant.). It compares these to those found in the Septuagint (LXX) and the Masoretic Text (MT). The objective is to see if any similarities can be found both in number and form of the names used by Josephus in order to determine if these could be used as an indicator of the source material as well as to the nature of its use. Ant. can be divided into two main parts: books one to ten which deals with the foundational epoch of Israel and eleven to twenty which focuses on the period after the Babylonian exile.

Keywords: Josephus; Masoretic Text (MT); Septuagint (LXX); The Antiquities of the Jews (Ant.)
