  1. The central thesis of Caesar s Messiah is that the Gospels of the Bible were written and the character of Jesus Christ was created by Roman intellectuals under the direction of Caesar Titus Flavius primarily with the intention of domesticating the Messianic Jewish movements which were resisting Roman occupation of Judea in the First Century, and secondarily with the intention of subverting the Jewish faith such that observants would be unknowingly worshipping Titus Flavius as a god through the p [...]


  2. It s extremely difficult for me to judge the truth accuracy 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 And probably the majority within that minority believe that [...]


  3. I would have to say that I m slightly biased in my religious background to review this book fairly I have to say that I grew up forced to read the Bible cover to cover into my mid twenties I even took a Christian Bible based tour through the Promised Land to see the scrolls and locations including Masada I was raised believing the scriptures to be literally the word straight from god Anyways, I m currently an atheist, I have always felt the Bible had a dark secret it was keeping, and now I thank [...]


  4. The premise of the book was intriguing, but it s execution was horrible Atwill uses slippery language some believe who exactly is left unanswered and fallacious arguments, despite his profession of logic For example, when trying to reconcile the 4 Gospels, he says only those able to think intelligently and logically 135 135 will get the comedy of errors 142 He then abandons implicit insults and comes right out with ad hominems Only those who are illogical will believe that the passages indicate [...]


  5. The book is an analysis of the origins of Christianity as a Roman state sponsored religion In a remarkably innovative bit of close textual analysis he demonstrates that Josephus Jewish War, and the New Testament were joint works written to mutually support one another Taken together the New Testament makes prophecies about the downfall of Judaism and Josephus portrays the apparently miraculous acting out of the manufactured prophecies The author reveals dozens of close thematic and chronological [...]


  6. 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 knowled [...]


  7. A bit difficult to get through thus far as the book reads like a thesis, but highly interesting subject matter.


  8. Tunnel VisionWhat Atwill attempts with his work is commendable and deserves five stars just for his attempt to conquer such a monumental topic However, the author is so engaged to prove his hypothesis that he not only ignores suggestions to the contrary but also misses that he actually would have been onto discovering something truly exciting Looking beyond the shortcomings, researchers can thus find in this book valuable insights into a possible composition mechanism of the New Testament, altho [...]


  9. I have no knowledge here I am taking it as read that he isn t distorting the text or choosing versions to suit his case whilst ignoring others, on the perhaps ropey assumption that he wouldn t get away with it If anyone knows any different than please let me know His main technique seems to be reading the various descriptions of events side by side and so spotting variations on a theme in stories that at first glance are not related He concentrate on the concepts and timelines of he stories rath [...]


  10. 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 other works on the topic The Bible after all was written by human hands so there isn t a large leap of faith for me to understand it as a propaganda piece to pacify a violent group of religious zealots The ironic parallels presented between New Testament and t [...]


  11. This book is probably for serious scholars of Early Christian History From the perspective of this amateur, it was very thought provoking, but I would like to accompany it with other either supportive or critical works Unfortunately, at this point I ve only found people attacking the author directly, and not addressing his evidence or the facts themselves.I don t know if this book could have been organized better He is presenting the gospels and The War of the Jews as a synthesis, so there is a [...]


  12. This book is really good If you want to find out what Christianity and perhaps organized religion in general is all about read this study.


  13. Hello, I am Roman Piso author of Piso Christ.What do I think of Joseph Atwill s work I happen to know Joseph Atwill and have discussed the subject matter with him many times He has also discussed it with Abelard Reuchlin.As far as his work in relation to ours, he has told me that he likes my work over that of Reuchlin s However, that may be because of the fact that I try to a write clearer for a wider audience, and or b that I try to write on events chronologically.Atwill s work leads people to [...]


  14. Pe scurt, scriitorul exploreaza o ipoteza care sustine ca personajul Iisus si religia crestina au fost create de familia imperiala Flavia prin imparatii Vespasian, Titus si Domitian, care incercau sa inabuse revoltele fara sfarsit ale evreilor Alegerea lor a fost sa editeze un pic religia mozaica, oferind un leader mesia pasnic in loc de unul razboinic, scopul luptei lor devenind din independenta evreilor si a statului iudaic o salvare pe lumea cealalta Daca evreii credeau cu sfintenie in unitat [...]


  15. In Caesar s Messiah Joseph Atwill presents a grand hypothesis which is a conglomerate of nonsensical hypotheses According to Atwill Christianity, the New Testament alongside Jesephus The Jewish War , Jesus, the Apostels as well as the majority of NT characters are part of a Flavian conspiracy to subdue militant Sicarii Jewish rebellion against Rome, by creating a pacifist version of Judaism What Atwill fails to do is to present credible evidence other than far fetched parallels between NT and Jo [...]


  16. It IS a real life DaVinci Code, just like the blurb says.Of course, that book is false And Dan Brown s not a bible scholar.Amazing how the parallels stack up.Parallels between Luke and Josephus Sure, they re there, and many legitimate scholars have known about them for a long, long, time.In fact, said scholars see this as nothing other than Luke borrowing from Josephus For said scholars who, like me, date the composition of Luke in the second century, there s nothing surprising.


  17. Fascinating book that sheds a very different light on the Christianity I can t accept everything he lays forward, but it s really intriguing




  18. Mystery shroud brought into a new lightAt times a bit dense and possibly repetitive, Atwill none the less, nails down the purpose of the foundation of Fake News at its source To me it was extremely relevant to the political machinations of 21st Century America and the creation of Drumpf s disciples It would be interesting to compare this work with the history of democracy 2000 years from now Oh, I guess I should mention that this really is the rolling of the stone back over the empty tomb of Jes [...]


  19. The contents of this book are uneven, from groundbreaking to sloppy As a result, this book cannot be used as a supplemental text in ANY classroom It cannot be generally recommended It is urgent that people read the groundbreaking paradigm shifting contents.Minus one star for not having an index.I went to look up blind or healing the blind and there was no index.This book will be a long study without an index.So, for making readers work so hard minus one star for not having an index.3 5 2014 down [...]


  20. Best summarized as a crock of shit Logically speaking, it is a 250 page post hoc fallacy It is an exegesis from nothing at all, and with little historical basis beyond the characters involved Those open minded to conspiracy theories, like myself, will be drawn in for 5 minutes Those with any historical knowledge of the creation of the New Testament will have debunked this atrocity in 5 minutes 2 seconds Of course, those that want to cling to the notion that they have a secret that no one else ha [...]

  22. I m not really sure what to think about this To be honest, he has a couple of interesting points, such as the different version of the resurrection story, but most I think is a stretch I am sick of the words lampoon and satire now Despite my lack of belief, it was still a fun book to read I am planning on reading Wars of the Jews, which I would ve never considered prior to reading Messiah, so that s a plus I guess.


  23. I never give up on a book But this one I just don t see myself ever finishing it That s not to imply that it s a bad book I found parts of it very interesting But it just does not hold my attention right now.


  24. A interesting position on the historical Jesus Somewhat fanciful at times but certainly unique in its approach Does not draw on a wide spectrum of scholarship and limits itself to direct interpretation of primary sources rather than to scholarly deconstructions and reconstructions.


  25. According to Mr Atwill, the Christian religion was invented by the Romans in order to defuse the problem of Jewish uprisings in Judea I don t have any issues with the author s scholarship, but I wonder why no one else who s studied the same works has ever come to the same conclusions.


  26. L ho dovuto abbandonare Impossibile leggerlo senza avere una approfondita conoscenza della materia Cosi tutto potrebbe essere vero come inventato A me sembra una serie di assurdit L idea di base ridicola Ma, appunto, non ho conoscenze sufficienti per smentirla.


  27. In nutshell, Jesus does not exist It is all political agenda to spread Roman empire Hence, please turn to true Spirituality.
