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 counterbala.

    It's extremely difficult for me to judge the truthaccuracy of the reasoning in this book because I don't think I have enough expertise on 1st Century Roman history But of all the attempts to uncover the origins of christianity this book presents one of the most plausible explanations that I'm aware of Probably a minority of people think as I do that Jesus of the New Testament is a mythological character NOT an actual historical figure An

    At times it read too much like at academic thesis and was hard to sit through for long periods of time However there were some very compelling theories and ideas that make sense I'd love to see this vetted by another biblical scholar and othe
