3 Maccabees is I think a very interesting book both for its narrative content and for its elaborately mannered style. There was an earlier thread about it on this board.
Edit. Sorry, you were referring to bk.1 (which I've never read), not bk.3 (which unlike bks.1-2 has nothing to do with Maccabees).
