Saul as a Just Judge in Josephus' Antiquities of the Jews

Saul as a Just Judge in Josephus' Antiquities of the Jews
Michael Avioz
Journal of Hebrew Scriptures - Volume 8: Article 18 (2008)
Abstract:
This essay reconsiders Louis Feldman's assertion that Josephus characterized Saul as a king who administered justice. This assertion is examined against the narratives in 1 Samuel 14 and 22. My conclusion is that Josephus did not praise Saul for being a just king. In this regard, his characterization of Saul is consistent with the biblical narratives in 1 Samuel 14 and 22, which denounce Saul for being a negative model of the king as supreme judge.
