Thomas Nelson Incorporated, May 1, 2003 - Religion - 1184 pages
Encounter the world and traditions that Jesus knew.Illuminate your understanding of the New Testament. In The Complete Works you will discover what the NewTestament writers knew about Abraham, Moses, Samuel, David, and Solomon andexamine an in-depth history of Herod and his infamous family.
Josephus left us the earliest independent accounts of thelives of Jesus, John the Baptist, and James the brother of Jesus. Much of whatwe know about the beliefs of the Sadducees and Pharisees comes from Josephus. WithoutJosephus, we would know very little about the Essenes, the ancient Jewish groupmost frequently associated with the Dead Sea Scrolls.

I had this in a 4-volume set, but a friend wanted to borrow volume 1. He died before he returned it, and I have no idea what his adult kids did with it. I was fearful that the print in a one book edition would be too small for me, but I was delightfully surprised. Great book! Read full review
