See Essay on the Old Testament, pages , Of these metres of the Psalms, see the note on Antiq. B. II. ch. sect. 4. Josephus's second work, the "Jewish Antiquities" (Ioudaike Archaiologia), contains in twenty books the whole history of the Jews from the Creation to the outbreak of the revolt in A.D. Books I-XI are based on the text of the Septuagint, though at times he also repeats traditional explanations current among the Jews in later times.

    Josephus says that Roman Caesar Vespasian ( AD) was the object at the end of the 70 weeks of Daniel. No connection is made with the messiah in any way. Josephus equated the “anointed man” with Vespsian (at the hands of Titus) in 70 AD. Keep in mind that Josephus was under hire by the Romans as their “official war historian”.
