What are the thoughts of Josephus? I have heard it said that the story that Josephus tells of the Romans building the road up to the city (wow, can't remember the name...blank) anyway, the ancient Jewish city where everybody committed suicide and the final people cast lots, down to the last man, etc. was fiction created by Josephus. True? Not true? Was Josephus a good historian? Thoughts? Also, links containing info would be nice.
