In Jewish Antiquities Flavius Josephus tells the story of the Jewish people from the origins until the era immediately before the Jewish War of 66-70. This work contains valuable information about the religious movements of Judaism in the 1st century, such as the Essenes, the Pharisees and the Zealots.

It also contains the so-called Testimonium flavianum, a short passage in Book XVIII that mentions the preaching and death of Jesus, substantially confirming the account of the Gospels. Although this passage has been considered in the past by some historians to be a falsification inserted in the Christian era, the majority of scholars today believe that Josephus Flavius actually mentioned Jesus in that passage.
A 1971 study by Shlomo Pines of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem on a tenth-century Arabic codex seems to confirm that it is a reference to Jesus Christ in the Gospels.
