comment How historically accurate is Josephus?
@DoubleAA: From the context of the letter, it seems obvious that the Rebbe was responding to the person referring to Josephus as Rav Yosef, to which the Rebbe responded that putting the discussion of the veracity of his account aside, no one ever refers to Josephus as a Rabbi.
