Despite whatever validity of your parallels, your analytic model is wrong as for drawing your underlying conclusion. To correct it, you should examine what Jerry and I have labeled the SSSM model that forms the basis of Western Civilization. This is substantially different that Joe's model which we label the CCM, which is a variant of the bankrupt Jew versus Gentile model that Judeo-Christianity entrains.“…Josephus… had dreamed in the night time, whereby God had signified to him beforehand both the future calamities of the Jews, and the events that concerned the Roman emperors. Now Josephus was able to give shrewd conjectures about the interpretation of such dreams as have been ambiguously delivered by God. Moreover, he was not unacquainted with the prophecies contained in the sacred books, as being a priest himself, and of the posterity of priests: and just then was he in an ecstasy; and setting before him the tremendous images of the dreams he had lately had, he put up a secret prayer to God, and said, "Since it pleaseth thee, who hast created the Jewish nation, to depress the same, and since all their good fortune is gone over to the Romans, and since thou hast made choice of this soul of mine to foretell what is to come to pass hereafter, I willingly give them my hands, and am content to live. And I protest openly that I do not go over to the Romans as a deserter of the Jews, but as a minister from thee."”
– Josephus, Wars of the Jews, Book III, 8:3"...I got all those that I remembered as among my own friends and acquaintances to be set free, being in number about one hundred and ninety; and so I delivered them without their paying any price of redemption, and restored them to their former fortune...”
– The Life Of Flavius Josephus, 1:75What an asshole, I would make fun of him if I were Greek also. Like, "oooh, Jesus, you really saved and redeemed your people, didn't you? Now they're all dead" (read that with a sarcastic voice).
Here, perhaps it might be useful for you to examine the narrative relationship between Josephus Flavius and his namesake, Joseph - son of Jacob (aka Israel), son of the favorite wife, using the narrative at the end of Genesis 47. Joseph collaborates with pharaoh to manipulate the Egyptian markets such that all Egyptians sell themselves into slavery, after selling their crops, livestock, and land to Joseph and pharaoh. And a few generations later, after Joseph has done such a great service for 'pharaoh', all the so-called Hebrews end up as slaves.

In our SSSM (for Shepherds, Sheepdogs, and Sheep Model) we claim that Western society is functionally organized along the lines of collaborating elites with the result that the tribe of Judah functions as a mostly unwitting and vanity driven Sheepdog buffer class that protects the gentil Shepherds. As I clearly laid out in my Isaac and the Fortunate Scions post Judah must pay obeisance to Ephraim, the favored son of Joseph. He must do so at least till the "two sticks become one", likely signaled by Pope Pius XII in the last century when he proclaimed himself Joseph to the Jews. Furthermore Ephraim's mother was hand picked for Joseph by 'pharaoh' from Egyptian priestly stock.
In the earlier posts on the OT we have addressed the differences in Jewish and 'Greek' culture, as laid out by Moses Hadas in his Hellenistic Culture, Fusion and Diffusion. As Hadas details in depth, their respective literary and other aspects of their wider cultures used the same sources, with the differences of satire and comedy, as you pointed out, and their treatment of time. Here, we assert that the reason for this being the case is that both the Judaic Temple culture and the culture of Classical Greece are because they are 'designer' societies, enabled by the massive regional chessboard clearing that occurred with the end of the Late Bronze Age. The classical Greeks stated emphatically that their concepts derived from Egypt, and as we are learning from the Sabbah rabbi brothers in their Secrets of the Exodus, that Judaism mainly derived from Egypt as well, Atenism reformulated. One must accept this latter being the case as a consequence, in that without the 613 Mosaic laws of cultural inversion that the people who became the Jews would otherwise be typical pagans.
With the Greeks, a centuries long dark age occurred with the collapse of the Late Bronze Age where Mycenae was unpopulated for centuries before the rise of Classical Greece, where the latter state that they got everything from Egypt. These are designer societies and cultures, just like modern day Mormonism and similar. They were created to achieve particular geopolitical objectives that were expedient in their day.
You also need to deal with the aspect of Esau's Edomites viz-a-viz the Romans and the Herodians, and why the Jewish corpus would allow that Esau would reclaim his inheritance, and why Gittin 56 seems to allow for exactly such.
Josephus delivered and restored his friends, because this is the manner in which the Shepherd and Sheepdog system works. The old model is what we are supposed to follow, because this forces one to twist themselves into a logic pretzel and come up with such as the CCM (the Cuckoo Coup Model).
Jerry and I have written quite a bit on this, but we are forced to spend a lot of redundant time explaining this because the old model is so pervasive.
