Chapter Summary

Josephus Flavius supports an entire world of research which encompasses Biblical studies, Jewish history, Hellenistic and Roman history, New Testament studies, Jewish Thought and Philosophy, Land of Israel studies, Classical languages, and of course the study of Josephus himself as both historian and public man. This book was born of an international conference entitled Making History: Josephus and Historical Method held at the University of Haifa from 26 July, 2006. The conference brought together scholars from eleven countries, many languages, disciplines, and affiliations. Kenneth Atkinson presents a new analysis of how Josephus used his historical sources to create his version of Hasmonean history from the time of John Hyrcanus I to Aristobulus II. József Zsengellér examines Josephus interpretation and version of the fall of the Kingdom of Israel and the origin of the Samaritans.

Keywords: Biblical studies; Hasmonean history; József Zsengellér; Josephus Flavius; Kenneth Atkinson
