Josephus recounts events of the period extending from the later reign of Jehoshaphat of Judah through the immediate sequels to the fall of Jerusalem to the Babylonians in Antiquitates Judaicae (AJ) 9,1-10,185. Begg's monograph--a followup to his earlier work, Josephus Account of the Early Divided Monarchy (AJ 8,212-420) (BETL 108, 1993)--provides a detailed investigation of this portion of AJ. In particular, it seeks to address a range of overaching questions: which sources--both biblical and extra-biblical--did Josephus draw on in constructing his account of the later monarchy? Which text-form(s) of the Biblical sources were used by him? What sort of rewriting techniques has he applied to the data of his sources and what is distinctive about the Josephan version of events which results from their application? Finally, what messages may Josephus' account be intended to convey to his two intended audiences, i.e. cultivated Gentiles and fellow Jews appreciation of Josephus' work as an interpreter of the Bible.ContentsForeword Introduction I Jehoshaphat at Mid-Career (AJ 9,1-17)II Ahaziah and Jehoram: Elijah and Elisha (AJ 9,18-28)III The Campaign of the Three Kings (AJ 9,29-45)IV Elisha's Great Deeds (AJ 9,46-94)V Joram of Judah (AJ 9,95-104)VI Jehu of Israel (AJ 9,105-139)VII Athaliah of Judah (AJ 9,140-156)VIII Joash of Judah (AJ 9,157-172)IX Jehoahaz and Joash of Israel (AJ 9,173-185)X Amaziah of Judah (AJ 9,186-204)XI Jeroboam II and Jonah (AJ 9,205-215)XII Uzziah of Judah and Northern Counterparts (AJ 9,216-235)XIII Jotham of Judah and the Prophet Nahum (AJ 9,236-243a)XIV Ahaz and Hoshea (AJ 9,243b-259)XV Hezekiah's Beginnings (AJ 9,260-276)XVI The End of Israel (AJ 9,277-291)XVII Jerusalem Delivered (AJ 10,1-23)XVIII The Finale of Hezekiah's Reign (AJ 10,24-36)XIX Manasseh and Amon (AJ 10,37-48)XX Josiah (AJ 10,49-80)XXI Jehoahaz, Jehoiakim, and Jehoiachin (AJ 10,81-102 + 229-230)XXII Zedekiah and Jeremiah (AJ 10,103-130)XXIII Jerusalem's Fall (AJ 10,131-154)
