    Josephus: Henry Leeming: Josephus' Jewish War and Its Slavonic Version: A Synoptic Comparison () "This volume presents in English translation the Slavonic version of Josephus Flavius' "Jewish War, long inaccessible to Anglophone readers, according to N.A. Materskej's scholarly edition, together with his erudite and wide-ranging study of literary, historical and philological aspects of the. The primary interest in this text has derived from the presence in the text of 8 passages relating to John the Baptist, Jesus, and the early Christians. These extracts were published with a German translation by Alexander Berendts. Berendts and Viktor Istrin contended that the text is based on the lost Aramaic first edition of Josephus.

      The death of John the Baptist occurred early on in Jesus' ministry. Luke claimed that Jesus was about 30 years old when he started to preach, and places his birth at the time of the Quirinius census - 6 AD. Luke therefore has Jesus' starting his ministry, and hence the death of John the Baptist, in c AD - which agrees with Josephus' account. Confirming this statement, the Slavonic Josephus introduced John the Baptist in 6 AD, immediately before the tax revolt of Judas the Galilean. Using this earlier timeline, the entire story of Jesus' movement and the history of Josephus fit together perfectly. The New Testament shifted the story of Jesus .

    The Old-Russian version of the War, which includes non-Christian passages on Herod, John the Baptist and Jesus, is a translation of the first Greek edition by Josephus, before the polishing work of his assistants-censors. In this eye-opening new book, John the Baptist in History and Theology, Joel Marcus makes a powerful case that John saw himself, not Jesus, as the proclaimer and initiator of the kingdom of God and his own ministry as the center of God’s saving action in history.
