The Ai-Achan Story (Joshua 7-8) According To Josephus[約瑟夫筆下的艾城與亞干故事(書七-八)]/Christopher T. Begg 貝格





This paper examines Josephus’ rewriting of the interwoven story of Achan’s theft and the battle(s) of Ai as told in Joshua chapter 7 to 8. The paper looks to such questions as the text-form(s) of Joshua chapter 7 to 8 available to Josephus, the re-writing techniques he applied to the Biblical account, and the purpose or effect of these, given his double audience, i.e. cultivated Gentiles and fellow Jews.
