    SUMMARY OF JOE ATWILL'S EVIDENCE

    For the last two thousand years, expressing disbelief in Jesus has been a heresy that led direct to the torture chamber or to the bonfire. Yet, the view that the Gospels are literary texts, and Jesus no more than a literary character, goes back to Porphyry in the 3rd century—whose works were suppressed and burnt by the church. In Elizabethan London the most prominent non believer in Jesus was Christopher Marlowe, one of the most expert literary figures of the age, who certainly knew how to distinguish a work of clever, imaginative, Menippean literature from a historical, factual account. But such brave literary figures have been rare.

    The majority of the key events in the life of Jesus in the gospels are satirical: several are an elegant literary satire of a military battle in which the Jewish armies had been defeated by the Romans. The Jewish War, culminating in the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem in 70 CE, had devastated the Mediterranean economy, and the Romans were anxious to prevent another messianic outbreak. In order to make any reconstruction of the country lasting, the Romans needed to offer the Jews alternative stories that would distract them from the messianic messages inherent in the Torah, and persuade them to accept Roman values and to worship Caesar .

    The Romans’ solution to these problems was to create a special kind of post-war propaganda. They called it in Greek evangelion, a technical term meaning “good news of military victory” which in English, is translated as “gospel.” The name is in fact ironic humor: the Romans were amusing themselves with the notion of making the Jews accept, as the actions of the Messiah Jesus, what were in fact literary echoes of the very battles in which Titus and the Romans had defeated the Jewish armies. A further joke was buried in unmistakable parallels between the life of Jesus and that of Titus: in worshiping Jesus, those Jews who adopted Christianity, as it came to be called, were in proxy hailing the Emperor of their conquerors as Titus/God, which was the Roman key strategic objective.

    To replace the Torah, then, this view maintains that the Romans created a literary parody the Gospel of Matthew and shortly thereafter rewrote it as the versions known as Luke and Mark, modeled respectively on the Aeneid and on Homer, etal. The central literary character, of the Gospels, called Jesus (or Joshua) inhabits a plot with various peculiar features: he begins his efforts by the Lake of Galilee; sends a legion of devils out of a demon-possessed man and into pigs; offers his flesh to be eaten; mentions signs of the destruction of Jerusalem; in Gethsemane a naked man escapes; Jesus is captured at Gethsemane on the Mount of Olives; Simon denies knowing him; he is crucified with two other men and only he survives; he is taken down from the cross by a man called Joseph of Arimathea (Joseph Bar Mathias); his disciple John survives but his disciple Simon is sent off to die in Rome; after his death, his disciple Judas dies by eviscerating himself.

    Each of these peculiar events has a parallel in the writings of Josephus Mathias, our sole record of the military encounters, from 66-73CE, between the Judeans and their Roman conquerors—even to the unusual crucifixion in which three men are crucified, and a man named Joseph Mathias takes one, who survives, down. Events at the Lake of Galilee launch the Judean careers of both Titus and Jesus. There Jesus called his disciples to be ‘fishers of men’. There the Roman battle took place in which Titus attacked a band of Jewish rebels led by a leader named Jesus. The rebels fell into the water and those who were not killed by darts “attempted to swim to their enemies, the Romans cut off either their heads or their hands” (Jewish War III, 10). Men were indeed pulled out of the water like fish.

    As for the episode of the Gadarene swine—in which demons leave a Gadara demoniac at Jesus’ bidding and then enter into a herd of 2,000 swine, which rush wildly into the lake and drown—Josephus recounts the Roman campaign in which Vespasian marched against Gadara. In the same way that the demons were concentrated in one demoniac, Josephus describes the faults of all the rebels being concentrated in the one head of the rebel leader John. Then, rushing about “like the wildest of wild beasts,” the 2000 rebels rushed over the cliff and drowned.

    There are a dozen such examples which appear in both sets of texts---and in the same order--- which provides statistical evidence that both works were created together as a single literary endeavor in the 80’s CE----and therefore demonstrates the non historicity of the Gospel accounts. Individual parallels have been detected over 200 years by half a dozen well known NT scholars but the entire set, and the implications, is summarized in Atwill’s book Caesar’s Messiah



    Thank you for your interest in “Caesar’s Messiah

    Below is a free report written by joseph Atwill, the author of “Caesar’s Messiah”, which reveals the true Identity of Jesus Christ.

    The most important discovery presented in my book “Caesar’s Messiah is that Jesus Christ is a composite fictional literary character and not a historical person. In Greek-the language in which the Gospels were original written-Jesus mean Savior and Christ means the Messiah, and the title of Christ was already familiar to Jews (Being applied to King David, Cyrus etal), long before the supposed time of Jesus. Further, there’s never been any archaeological evidence of Jesus Christ that had ever been discovered-the only way we really know about this individual is through the Gospels=which in Greek means Good news of military victory. This military victory can be read in War of the Jews By Josephus which is the foundation of the Gospels.

    Though the Gospels seem to be a history they are actually anti-History of the true military-messianic movement of the Maccabee’s and their offshoots of the Zealots and Sicari gangs that fought and lost to Rome. The Gospels are written in the style of a genre of fictional literature called Typology. Typology is simply creating stories by basing one character upon another character from a different time, place and story-much like an archetype but the keystone to the arch of the deception is Titus. Once someone understands that the Gospels are Typological literature, it is easy to see that virtually every episode of Jesus ministry was based upon events that occurred during the Roman Caesar Titus’s military campaign through Judea.

    The typology linking Jesus to Titus in the gospels is not especially hard to spot and the fact that it has been overlooked for 2,000 years is inexplicable. A blind man could see Flavius Josephus’s War of the Jews and the Gospels as DNA related like a father to a son. This oversight is particularly strange in that the Gospels set up a direct connection between Jesus and Titus with prophecies concerning the Son of Man.

    While Christians believe that the character in the Gospels was divine, this is not what Jesus Christ actually claimed. Jesus never said that he was the Messiah, and in fact went out of his way to avoid saying so. Jesus stated that the “Son of Man”-a title for the Jewish messiah that comes from the prophecies of Daniel-would come before the generation he spoke passed away. Since Jews of this era saw a generation as lasting forty years, what Jesus was claiming was that the Son of Man would appear within forty years from the date of his death on Passover 33CE. Jesus also made clear predictions as to what would happen when the Son of Man came. He prophesied that during the Son of man’s visitation Galilean towns would be destroyed, Jerusalem would be encircled with a wall, and the Temple would be razed. The Temple was razed in 70CE.

    In trying to make sense out of what Jesus said, Christians have interpreted this visitation by the Son of Man as the “second coming of Jesus Christ. But there is a major problem with this belief-Jesus didn’t show up within the time span he predicted. Christians have tried to get around this problem by claiming that Jesus would come sometime in the future, but this clearly illogical. Jesus was very precise that the Son of Man would come within forty years from his ministry. So who was the Son of Man that Jesus predicted and Christians have worshiped for 2,000 years? The true name of the Christ the Messiah –is Titus Flavius.

    The only person in history who accomplished the predictions that Jesus made concerning the Son of Man-and he did it precisely within the given time frame-was Titus Flavius. So the Gospels is nothing but a parody, satire of the military events in Flavius Josephus work War of the Jews. Titus did destroy the very Galilean towns Jesus predicted. He did encircle Jerusalem with a wall and he razed the Temple exactly as Jesus foresaw, leaving “not one stone atop the other”.

    In fact, Titus campaign ended with the destruction of Masada on Passover 73CE, exactly forty years to the exact day from Jesus crucifixion in 33CE on the 15th of Nisan. This DNA match can only be found by reading the Gospels/War of the Jews side by side. Moreover, Jesus predictions concerning the Son of Man were echoed by all of Titus court historians. Each one maintained that Titus was the Christ, the Messiah which the prophecies in Jewish literature foresaw-the same prophecies Jesus cited in his predictions about the coming of the Son of Man.

    In light of all this, the discovery that all of the events of Jesus ministry were based upon Titu’s military campaign should really not be surprising. Particular since the first Christian Pope and all of the first saints of Christianity were members of Titus imperial court. The Vatican headquarters were built upon the palace of the Flavians. The first Pope Clemens was married to Vespasian granddaughter. What is surprising is that Christians and scholars have overlooked something as obvious as the fact that the Gospels proclaim the same thing that the Flavian imperial court historians did-that Titus is the Christ.

    So now you know the true identity of the Son of Man, one of Christianity’s top 5 secrets. If you want to know the true identity of the Jewish Messiah who was crucified on the cross-whose name was not Jesus (it was Simon Peter & or Eleazar/Lazarus)-I have devoted an entire chapter to this character in my book “Caesar’s Messiah”. I invite you to pick up a copy, and feel free to discuss these ideas with me on my Blog: http://Caesarsmessiah.com/blog
