Philo Complete Works (924 pages)
Philo of Alexandria (circa 20 BC- 50 AD), also called Philo Judaeus, was a Hellenistic Jewish philosopher who lived in Alexandria, Egypt. The epitome of Philo’s religious exegesis is one of skillfully weaving together the Jewish scriptures into allegories that harmonize with Greek philosophy. While not altogether abandoning the historicity of the Jewish scriptures, his methodology of distinguishing history from allegory is eclectic and represents a comprehensive metaphysical scheme that even allows him to grapple with morally disturbing biblical events. To achieve this biblical characters are sometimes interpreted as aspect of the human being, and Biblical episodes may be interpreted as universal human experiences.

Even though Philo was writing as a Jew with a Greek education, historically his significance has been one of Christian making. One example that contributes to this importance is that Philo wrote extensively on the Son of God which he called The Logos, decades before the Gospel of John was written; although a contemporary of the historical Jesus, it should be noted that none of his surviving works mention either Jesus of Nazareth or the Christ.
                                        The Works of Josephus (926 pages)
This renowned reference book has served scholars, pastors, students, and those interested in the background of the New Testament for years. The insight given into the Essene community, the destruction of Jerusalem, and the interpretations and traditions of the Old Testament in first century Judaism is invaluable. The outlook of Josephus, a late-first-century Pharisee and historian, on Jesus and the New Testament documents is enlightening and provocative. As an original reference, The Works of Josephus is essential to a full understanding of the first century, the time of Christ, and the New Testament.

Complete and unabridged, this is the best one-volume edition of the classic translation of Josephus' works. The entire text has been reset in modern, easy-to-read type; numbering corresponding to that used in the Loeb edition has been added to the text; and citations and cross-references have been updated from Roman numerals to Arabic numbers. The volume also includes expanded indexes and the text and notes of Whiston's 4-volume study on Josephus.\
When Eusebius (c. A.D. 260-340) wrote his Ecclesiastical History, his vital concern was to record facts before they disappeared and before eyewitnesses were killed and libraries were burned and destroyed in persecutions by Rome. He faithfully transcribed the most important existing documents of his day so that future generations would have a collection of factual data to interpret. Thus Eusebius richly deserves the title Father of Church History.
                             Eusebius' Ecclesiastical History (477 pages)
Eusebius' Ecclesiastical History is one of the classics of early Christianity and of equal stature with the works of Flavius Josephus. Eusebius chronicles the events of the first three centuries of the Christian Church in such a way as to record a vast number of vital facts about early Christianity that can be learned from no other ancient source.
