Josephus' Interpretation of the Books of Samuel

Full Product Description

Since the seventies, no study has examined the methodologies of Josephus' rewriting of an entire biblical book as part of his Judean Antiquities. This book attempts to fill this vacuum by exploring Josephus' adaptation of the book of Samuel, penetrating the exegetical strategies he employs to modify the biblical stories for his intended audience. Through meticulous comparison of the biblical narrative and Josephus' Antiquities, broader issues - such as Josephus' attitude towards monarchy and women - gradually come to light, challenging long-held assumptions. This definitive exploration of Josephus' rewriting of Samuel illuminates the encounter between two ancient texts and its relevance to scholarly discourse today.

Josephus' Interpretation of the Books of Samuel by Michael Avioz was published by Bloomsbury Publishing PLC in March 2015. The ISBN for Josephus' Interpretation of the Books of Samuel is 9780567608802.
