Item Description:

Though his street uses his Hebrew name, the world knows the subject of this lecture as Josephus Flavius - historian, general, and, arguably, traitor. Rabbi Wein takes on the controversies surrounding this contradictory figure, from his closeness with the Romans to his defense of the Jews. His story begs the timeless question: is one Jew’s ascent to power good for all of us? With comparisons to today’s times, this lecture will leave you with plenty of food for thought.

• not just a Kohain, but a descendent of the Kohain Gadol • the story of Masada
• early Church tamperings with his most famous writings
• Against Apion, the work that redeemed him
