Caesar's Messiah--The Roman Conspiracy To Invent Jesus

Author: Atwill, Joseph
Publisher: Ulysses Press
ISBN: 1-56975-457-8
 The following review was contributed by:  SHELDON (SHELLY) WAXMAN & click to view Shelly's reviews.

Jesus never existed. If true, what does that do? It means that the Jewish Messiah is yet to come. I like that. And I really liked Atwill's book, which I read in its first version: "The Roman Origin of Christianity." I also met Mr. Atwill at a Book Expo convention. He is a mild and patient man, who has had the misfortune of exposing the Christian fraud. Not something that can be done without tremendous courage.

Moreover, the writing style is easy and not overly annotated nor filled with scholarly expositions. It can be understood by anybody. Since it is only a theory, albeit a theory with a lot of scientific evidence, it will be interesting to see the attack of the Christians and the Critics.
Caesar's Messiah, a real life Da Vinci Code, presents the dramatic and controversial discovery that the conventional views of Christian origins may be wrong. Author Joseph Atwill makes the case that the Christian Gospels were actually written under the direction of first-century Roman emperors. The purpose of these texts was to establish a peaceful Jewish sect to counterbalance the militaristic Jewish forces that had just been defeated by the Roman Emperor Titus in 70 A.D.
 
Atwill uncovered the secret key to this story in the writings of Josephus, the famed first-century Roman historian. Reading Josephus's chronicle, The War of the Jews, the author found detail after detail that closely paralleled events recounted in the Gospels. Atwill skillfully demonstrates that the emperors used the Gospels to spark a new religious movement that would aid them in maintaining power and order. What's more, 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 ages.
