More information

The writings of Josephus contain one of the few historical accounts we have of the wars of the Jews and the first destruction of Jerusalem by Titus during the Roman occupation of Palestine in 70 A.D. This recording includes selections from The Wars of the Jews, written by Josephus during the reign of Vespasian. It features the arrival of the Roman army outside the city; a description of the city’s magnificent temple and fortifications; details concerning the famine and its effects on the populace; the burning of the temple; and the siege of Masada.
