American Bible scholar claims ancient ‘confessions’ prove story of Jesus Christ was entirely fabricated by Roman Aristocrats


My Comment:  Now I’ve heard it all.  What makes people so obsessed about proving the Bible wrong?  One word SATAN!  The Bible has stood the test of time, it has been attacked, called a lie, and it still stands.  True Christians will not fall for this, but I do worry about the current ; ‘In name only Christians.’  Jesus knew he would be attacked, he knew that there would be false prophets, false Christs, and that all men would hate us for His name.  Give it a rest!  But remember one thing:  That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

An American scholar claims to have made a controversial discovery that proves the entire story of Jesus was made up by Roman aristocrats.

Joseph Atwill asserts that Christianity did not start as a religion, but was instead created as a sophisticated propaganda tool to pacify subjects of the Roman Empire.

He says he noticed a pattern forming when he was studying the only surviving account of first-century Judea, which he claims contains dozens of parallels between the life of a Roman emperor and that of Jesus in the New Testament.

Mr Atwill argues that these ancient ‘confessions’ provide ‘clear evidence’ that the biography of Jesus is ‘actually constructed, tip to stern, on prior stories, but especially on the biography of a Roman Caesar’.

Mr Atwill accepts that his theory will upset some believers but is confident that it will be accepted in good time.

But bible academic Professor James Crossley, from the University of Sheffield, compared Mr Atwill’s theory to a Dan Brown fiction book.

He told Mail Online: ‘These types of theories are very common outside the academic world and are usually reserved for sensationalist literature.

‘They are virtually non-existent in the non-academic world.’

  2. Sounds like another friend of Bill O’Reilly. Do these people just think that millions have fallen for a hoax or mass hysteria. Sometimes you just get fed up with this type of junk.
