John Barclay on Josephus (Video)

With a recent post on Josephus it may be appropriate to share these video interview with Professor John Barclay on Josephus. So here is to some easy Sunday watching:

Josephus: the man and the myths. Part I from CPX on Vimeo.

Josephus: the man and the myths. Part II from CPX on Vimeo.

The second video focuses on Josephus on Jesus, and even the claim that Jesus did not exist. Don't you hate it when a talk about Josephus on his own terms gets hijacked by silly claims.

  1. Haven't watched the first part, but I find his claim about "called Christ" clearly not being from a Christian pen troubling. I've seen people point out places in some of the canonical gospels where Jesis is "called Christ". Don't know about the church fathers or other Christian writings.
