Both were hellenistic Jews.
Paul was from turkey. He might've been a mithraist.
Both are known for their literary works, and both produced their works with upper-class Koine greek
That would've been the case for any literary work spread throughout that part of the world.
And, since paul is from tarsus, what else would he speak?
which has its origin in a drama (written by Jospehus himself?), is used.
Interesting, but I don't think it adds much.
Paul (paulos) means "small".
From where? ALso, why concoct the story about the name being saul originally?
6. Paul was in his famous shipwreck when he was on his way to Rome. Josephus also mentions that he was shipwrecked when on his way to
Shipwrecks, however, were very common.
and there were many attempts to kill him.
The information is interesting. However, wouldnt' the people in contact with Paul-Josephus recognize the difference? Is there some similiartiy in
the specifc writting styles that shows that its the same author?
Why would josephus spend his time posing as a jew when he's really a christian? Whats the motivation for the fraud?
