Jews Against Rome by Susan Sorek
Book DescriptionThis is the first book to cover the myriad factors of the Jews revolt against the Romans - from its origin to its lasting consequences - and re-evaluate historical accounts.The calamitous revolt of the Jews against their Roman overlords reverberates down the centuries and is arguably the greatest event in all Jewish history with the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem in AD70, fulfilling many messianic prophecies, at the heart of the rebellion.Why did the revolt happen and how did it end with the mass suicide of zealots at Masada in AD73? Is the main source of evidence - "The Jewish War" by Flavius Josephus - reliable? These questions and more are tackled here in the first book to look at the causes, events and consequences of the conflict in Roman Palestine, whilst assessing the authority of Josephus' eyewitness accounts.
