But once there he wrote the history of his people - and remained faithful to the God in Judaism. In a sense it was a road well taken. Raphael compares him to other individualistic Jews who would not follow either the rabbis, or the militant Zionists - or who in some way were considered heretics - and are considered by some of our elite still in the same way.
The only thing I missed was more detail of Josephus' life both before and especially after - but perhaps there is not much evidence left of that. But nevertheless this book is rich in the struggles among the Jews and in many ways makes sense of some of the struggles of the present day.
Should have been titled " The LEGACY and life".
