In 1978, David Flusser presented his long awaited critical edition of Sepher Yosippon; two years later his extended commentary to the text appeared. To date this seminal work has not been subject to the scholarly enquiry it deserves; especially given the reputation earlier editions have received by scholars. This paper reintroduces the importance of Sepher Yosippon and explores several facets of the book's treatment of Herod in the context of the ‘Binding of Isaac’ and its relationship to the Jesus tradition and the book's treatment of the terms messiah and meshuah milhamah. The paper also looks at the author's use of parody and polemic as aspects of his secular historiography.
