In Hung. In this study, it is argued that prophetic activity did not initiate the revolt, but contributed to its spread. An important piece of evidence in Library of Ancient Jewish numismatics. The works of Flavius Josephus are considered by modern scholars as some of the most important primary resources by which first century Judean life can be reconstructed. A surface reading of his writings reveals that Josephus wrote in A surface reading of his writings reveals that Josephus wrote in contradictory ways and took many liberties with the biblical text.
Up to recently, the generally agreed consensus has been that Josephus was a poor historian with limited knowledge of the Bible. However, modern scholars have come to realise that Josephus used the historiographical models of his day in his writings. These models allowed a writer a certain liberty in reconstructing historical events, even if under the appearance of maintaining an accurate account.
It will be shown that he modified this passage of scripture in his account of the Jewish war in his Jewish War. The aim is to determine if Josephus was just misquoting the Bible or if he was writing theologically with a certain purpose in mind. Josephus was straightforward about his intentions: to make sure that the account of the Jewish war was accurate.
His purpose was to exonerate the majority of the Jewish people by blaming a minority rebel group for the revolt against Rome. The study shows that Josephus strove to portray the Jewish people as admirable in various ways, and by so doing, educating his Graeco-Roman audience. Ultimately, Josephus defends the God of the Jews to his audience, noting that God uses nations to punish the Jews for their sin.
The study concludes that, although Josephus seemingly paraphrases some of Genesis , he was presenting a powerful theological message to his audience. Summary: Recent studies on Flavius Josephus emphasize a distance between the historiographer and the Flavian court as well as the Roman nobility.
In view of these results, the analysis attends to the presentation of the Roman emperors in The work likely began during the rule of his brother Titus. The fact that by the completion of his arch, Titus was already dead, is made clear by one of the depiction of the apotheosis depicted on the ceiling of the archway and by the inscriptions image It was crucial for the Flavians to present themselves as appointed by the will of the Senate and the People while in fact they had risen to power through a tumultuous civil war.
The inscription also implies that the legitimacy is transferred from one Flavian ruler to the next. Titus, already divine, is portrayed as the son of the divine Vespasian. Thus, both father and son, divine, add to the legitimacy of Domitian, who in fact completed the arch. Moreover, the depiction of the loot on the relief, serves to remind future generations, one of the main archetypes of Roman propaganda, namely, the benefits of the empire, the war and the peace image The gold and silver objects, the rich textiles, the enormous quantity of wealth collected and brought to Rome from foreign regions are the legitimate reward of conquest.
Departing from the description of the triumph given by Josephus, in which Domitian is portrayed as riding on a horse, on the Arch, Domitian occupies a conspicuous position and is paired with his patron goddess, Minerva. The second arch, whose existence has been known since the Middle Ages and of which only fragments have survived, was probably bigger and was located on the eastern edge of the Circus Maximus Fig. It was completed by Domitian in 81 C.
It was built at the feet of the Palatine, the traditional seat of Imperial power from Augustus onwards. It was there that the people of Rome could acclaim the emperor and show him their favor. In contrast to the arch on the Velia, this second one consisted of a wider arch, higher and wider, flanked by two smaller arches, each framed by a column on either side.
The arch was topped by an attic, with an inscription. This arch, as well, was decorated with reliefs. The only remain is a fragment, which depicts a soldier, possibly showing his virtus , or bravery. The main inscription, which topped the arch, was copied a long time ago. In conclusion, we can advance the hypothesis that the Jews took the place of the Egyptians defeated at Actium, or of the British tribes conquered by Claudius in the Roman imagination. The victory on the rebel province was celebrated though the minting and circulation of coins as well as through the erection of various monuments, such as the Forum Pacis , where the spoils coming from the Temple of Jerusalem were preserved and displayed, or the two triumphal arches, dedicated by Domitian to Titus.
Further, the loot coming from the war, financed the construction of unprecedented monuments including the Coliseum and the Bath of Titus. No less than Augustus, the Flavians were the first rulers to implement a swiping plan of urban reform, which reshaped the whole city of Rome in function of the advent of the new dynasty and its indelible power. Unlike previous emperors, the Flavians sought to dominate with their presence the urban public space and the collective mindset of Rome.

Thus, the eastern god, as previously the god on Mount Carmel, or the prophecy of Josephus, consecrated Vespasian as the legitimate ruler of the Roman Empire, bestowing on him the favor of the gods.
