Wow. I've been reading this alongside of Josphus (just recently went and bought a book of the writings of Jospehus) and it adds many other dimensions. It's easy to follow and it's further strengthening my Messianic studies, which I feel is a deeper calling by G-d to gather his people together, both Jew and Gentile.
