Caesar's Messiah The Roman Conspiracy to Invent Jesus

Emonstrates that the emperors used the Gospels to spark a new religious movement that would aid them in maintaining power and order What's by including hidden literary clues they took the story of the Emperor Titus's glorious military victory as recounted by Josephus and embedded that story in the Gospels a sly and satirical way of glorifying the emperors through the age. A very thought provoking book Since I already had a basic knowledge of John Allegro s work with the Dead Sea scrolls I found this book very interesting It certainly explains how a religion with a solid foundation in the Torah and rabbinical tradition does not have a single historical document or other contemporary account written in Aramaic or Hebrew Ironically all accounts by Jesus Jewish apostles were recorded in Latin or Greek who with the exception of Paul probably had very little knowledge of Greek or Latin It also explains why the new religion rather than following the egalitarian Jewish tradition based on logic and argument became a hierarchical system based on the Roman Emperor and Senate SPOILER WARNING Christians who are afraid of uestioning the foundations of their faith could become very upset by this book Electing Judges used the Gospels to spark a new religious movement that would aid them in maintaining power and order What's by including hidden literary clues they took the story of the Emperor Titus's glorious military victory as recounted by Josephus and embedded that story in the Gospels a sly and satirical way of glorifying the emperors through the age.
