Title: Josephus' Portrait of Samuel
Author(s): FELDMAN, Louis H.
Journal: Ancient Near Eastern Studies
Volume: 30 Date: 1992
While it is true that Josephus, in his Antiquities, has relatively little to say about the prophets as such, nevertheless, inasmuch as, in many cases, they played important roles in the politics of their day, Josephus the historian is much interested in them. Moreover, Josephus saw a significant link between the roles of prophets and historians and, indeed, regards the prophets as the immediate predecessors of historians.
