Josephus Podcast

John Roller is teaching a college-level class on Flavius Josephus. After learning that this was being recorded, I cajoled him into letting me podcast it. I’ve listened to some of Roller’s other stuff (especially on conditional immortality) and interviewed him on Truth Matters as well. He is whimsical, knowledgeable, and grounded.

Josephus lived from a.d. 37 to 100, the generation after Jesus’ death. He was an eye-witness to the great Jewish War of a.d. 66 to 74. He wrote two massive historical tomes: The Antiquities of the Jews and The Jewish War. Both of these works contain unique insight into the world of the first century that would otherwise remain buried in silence. For example, Josephus tells us a great deal about the Herodian dynasty, especially Herod the Great, Herod Antipas, and Herod Agrippa. He talks about Pilate, James, and even Jesus, though that section may have been tampered with by later Christian copyists.
