Titus Flavius Josephus (37 – c. 100), born Joseph ben Matityahu, was a first-century Romano-Jewish scholar, historian and hagiographer, who was born in Jerusalem.

He fought against the Romans during the First Jewish–Roman War as head of the Jewish forces in Galilee, until surrendering in 67 to Roman forces led by Vespasian. Josephus recorded Jewish history, with special emphasis on the first century AD and the First Jewish–Roman War. His most important works are “The Jewish War” and “Antiquities of the Jews “.

• The Antiquities of The Jews
• The Wars of The Jews
• Against Apion
