Chapter Summary

This chapter addresses two questions: first, it must be stated that Josephus himself had expectations about the future of his people and the world. Second, it examines the question of how he from his own point of view about the present and future history writing, the future expectations of other Jews of his time describing. The view of history of Josephus has undergone a profound change according to his own statements. It is useful to compare the self-portrait of Josephus with the portraits of some great men of the past, which he himself is in his Antiquities. The future expectation of Josephus is rooted in a history, which is affected in various points by what he read in the Scriptures. The original text of the chapter is in German.
