(p.36) 2 Josephus’ Land Theology
The Gift of the Land and the Fate of the Canaanites in Jewish Thought

Michael Avioz

Oxford University Press

In 1981, Betsy Halpern–Amaru published a paper entitled “Land Theology in Josephus' Jewish Antiquities”, arguing that Josephus downplayed the nationalist dimensions of a covenant theology that focused on the land. This conclusion is supported by a thorough examination of various citations from Josephus, mainly his Antiquitates judaicae. This chapter reexamines the texts analyzed by Halpern–Amaru and contests her conclusions about Josephus' land theology.

Keywords:   land theology, Josephus, Betsy Halpern–Amaru, covenant theology, Antiquitates judaicae
