Josephus vs. Vespasian (AD 67)

Ed Stevens
This time we dig a little deeper into the details of the Galilean campaign of Vespasian and Titus, as they began to subjugate all the fortified cities of Galilee (AD 67). Josephus had tried to unite all the cities of Galilee under his command, and get them fortified before the Romans attacked. But it simply did not work. Some of the Galilean cities were still allied to Rome, while others only wanted to participate in the Zealot rebellion if they could be in command. Josephus was only 29 years old at that time, so it is remarkable that he was able to do as well as he did. But they were no match for the well-equipped and well-trained Roman war engine. Vespasian took one city after another, pushing all the refugees ahead of him toward Jerusalem.
