Caesar's Messiah: The Roman Conspiracy to Invent Jesus

Synopsis: Based on the best-selling religious studies book by Joseph Atwill, this documentary shows that Jesus is not a historical figure, the events of Jesus' life were based on a Roman military campaign, his supposed second coming refers to an event that already occurred, and the Gospels were written by a family of Caesars who left us documents to prove it. Besides Atwill, six other controversial Bible scholars weigh in, showing that the teachings of Christ came from the ancient pagan mystery schools, and that Christianity was used as a political tool to control the masses of the day and is still being used this way today.

Who was Jesus?

Is he this historical character?

Who wrote the Gospels?

Why are they written in Greek?

Why did they have a

pro-Roman perspective?

Why was the religion

headquartered in Rome?

Those were the misteries

that I saw about the Gospels.

The origin of the Christian religion

has been a subject steep in

mistery for nearly 2,000 years.

Joseph Atwill is one of the number of

scholars today from all around the world

who are questioning the historic

facts behind these ancient misteries.

When examining the actual

history of this era,

many of the answers provided by

the Church and Christian scholars

do not hold up to rigorous scrutiny.

This is really important

for our culture.

To understand where

Christianity came from.

No doubt, Christians have done

a lot of good for the world.

But then there are other

Christians, often the most dogmatic,

who create wars, hatred and other

harm under the disguise of religion.

In studying how Christianity

emerged, many of our scholars agreed

that it was used as a political

tool to control the masses of the day

and it's still being

used this way today.

The problem is that Christianity

has been used as a tool by government

that uses the goodness

in people against them.

For example, support for

the wars in the Middle East

has been preached to

evangelical Christians

as a way to speed up the end of days.

This is just one example

of the way that propaganda

is used to control and

manipulate the populace.

Actually, according to my

study of the ancient text,

the second coming of the

Christ has already occurred.

Maybe we need to expand

the possible answers

about how Christianity originated

and deeper questions need to be asked.

Maybe we need to examine

what political motives

were behind the formation

of the Christian religion.

I think it's a requirement

of alert citizens to know how

the Gospels were written,

why they were written,

who produced them, what was the

purpose and back of all this.

This is good citizenry. Everyone

should be involved in this.

Today, we live on a brink of

an immense paradigm shift.

And this modern time is very parallel to

the era in which Christianity emerged.

Studying this ancient era can

give us the perspective needed

for coming up with solutions

to today's problems.

And for helping create the

better world that we envision.

And the penny dropped!

The penny dropped that Jesus,

as a human being, never existed!

Kenneth Humpreys - historian and author

"Jesus Never Existed"

The presentation of the Jesus

character is somewhat of a composite

of many messianic leaders of the time.

Prof. Robert Eisenman, author, "James the

Brother of Jesus" and "The New Testament Code"

Well, let's just go back to the

drawing board and we'll leave aside

all of the assumptions of Christian history.

And let's just look at the text

afresh and consider every possibility.

Let's open the whole game up.

Can you ~rsxuthat Christianity is

really paganism by a different name?

Now it feels completely obvious.

Some of us are saying that this was

a sun-god turned into a Jewish man.

In all of this, we're

dealing with literature,

we're not dealing with history.

So, the answer is no, there is no

history to this character Jesus.

It's entirely a literature creation.

Some of our Bible

scholars are mavericks,

working outside the restrictions of

mainstream religious instituitions.

This allows them the freedom

to provide fresh insights

and draw some startling conclusions

about how Christianity was born.

Arch of Titus, Rome

We began reading a number

of books on the subject.

This turned into a decade long research.

For Joseph Atwill, the key

was in the Dead Sea Scrolls.

The only Jewish literature ever

discovered from the 1st century AD or CE,

the time that Jesus would have

been preaching among the Jews.

The characters in the Dead Sea

Scrolls were militaristic...

and you can see that this movement wanted

to push the foreigners out of Israel.

They were fundamentalists.

Whereas the characters in the Gospel

are different. They are pacifistic.

They are turning the other cheek.

They're giving to Caesar what is Caesar's.

How did a movement like Christianity

come to exist in a region

that was occupied by Roman soldiers

and had Jewish zealots within it

that were going to

push these Romans out?

How was that possible?

I began studying the other

two major works of the era:

The New Testament and Wars

of the Jews, by Josephus,

(?) a Roman ??? historian

who described the war

between the Romans and the

Jews in the 1st century.

While reading these works side by side,

I noticed an amazing

connection between them.

Certain events from the ministry

of Jesus seemed to closely paralell

episodes from the military campaign

of Roman Caesar Titus Flavius,

a campaign which took place 40

years after Jesus supposedly lived.

My efforts to undestand these connections

lead me to an incredible discovery.

Christianity had been invented by a

little known family of Roman Caesars:

the Flavians.

And they left us documents to prove it.
