Abstract This article analyzes Josephus' rewriting of the biblical narratives about Jonathan, son of Saul (1 Sam. 13–14; 17–23; 31 // Ant. 6.95, 105–29, 205–12, 224–41, 252–53, 369). It compares the biblical narratives to Josephus' rewriting in an attempt to understand the nature of the changes he entered into the biblical text. These include omissions, additions, and changes of focus. Did these changes stem from a different Vorlage or from exegetical reasons? Can these changes be explained as deriving from Josephus' apologetic view?
