Time Monk Radio Network Presents: Joseph Atwill & Ryan Gilmore Friday, February 14th @ 8pm Est http://caesarsmessiah.com/blog/about/ While studying the two most prominent works of the 1st century – Josephus’ “Wars of the Jews”and the Gospels – Atwill noticed a series of parallels occurring in sequence between the military campaign of the Roman Caesar Titus Flavius and the ministry of Jesus. His findings led him to a startling new conclusion about the origins of Christianity – that a Roman imperial family, the Flavians, had created Christianity to pacify the Jews’ rebellion against Rome, and even more incredibly, they had placed a literary satire within the Gospels and “Wars of the Jews” to inform posterity of this fact. The results of Atwill’s research are set out in his book “Caesar’s Messiah”. The second edition of “Caesar’s Messiah”, Ulysses Press 2006, became the best selling work of religious history in the US in 2007, and its German translation “Das Messias Ratsel”, Ulstein 2008, achieved #1 Best Seller status. The Flavian Signature edition of “Caesar’s Messiah”, CreateSpace 2011, adds the most detailed presentation of the parallels Atwill discovered between the works of Josephus and the Book of Luke. His upcoming book, “The Single Strand”, is also slated to be published by Ulstein, and a documentary film based on “Caesar’s Messiah” is being released in 2011. Ryan Gilmore is a graphic designer who lives in London and organized the Covert Messiah conference last year. He studies fringe topics including the origins of Christianity.
