Josephus: The Antiquities of The Jews

The Antiquities of the Jews (Greek: Ἰουδαϊκὴ ἀρχαιολογία, Ioudaikē archaiologia; Latin: Antiquitates Judaicae) by Josephus is an account of Jewish history from the Biblical creation to the First Jewish-Roman War.

The work is an important source for the history of Judaism and for the historical background to the rise of early Christianity. The extant text contains two references to Jesus whose authenticity has been the subject of much debate.
