the striving for precision to answer possible questions clearly unmasks a
text as being revised, a known technique in ancient religio-political
literature, which lead to the genres of apocrypha and anti-heretic tractates
to justify/defend exegetical positions.

Nevertheless the inspired author might have found a pearl simply by his
brain- or bodywork... :)

Hippo's dependence from Josephus or the dependence of both of them from a
common source (sic!) is scholarly common knowledge; cf. e.g. VanderKam_The
Dead Sea Scrolls Today_ Grand Rapids 1994, ch. 3.1.2
