Description

Préface
Josephus has attracted criticism for his misogynist views, and his attitude towards the monarchy. Here, his views are evaluated in reference to the Book of Samuel, and long-held assumptions are challenged.

Auteur
Michael Avioz is an associate professor teaching at the department of Bible at Bar-Ilan University in Israel. Dr. Avioz is the author of two books and numerous scholarly articles. His books include Nathan's Oracle (2 Samuel 7) and Its Interpreters (2005) and I Sat Alone: Jeremiah among the Prophets (2009). In recent years he has been working on Josephus´ interpretation of the Hebrew Bible.

Résumé
Since the seventies, no study has examined the methodologies of Josephus´ rewriting of an entire biblical book as part of his Judean Antiquities. This book attempts to fill this vacuum by exploring Josephus´ adaptation of the books of Samuel, penetrating the exegetical strategies he employs to modify the biblical stories for his intended audience. Through meticulous comparison of the biblical narrative and Josephus´ Antiquities, broader issues such as Josephus´ attitude towards monarchy and women gradually come to light, challenging long-held assumptions. This definitive exploration of Josephus´ rewriting of Samuel illuminates the encounter between the ancient texts and its relevance to scholarly discourse today.
