Upcoming Broadcasts

On Thursday February 2nd, 2023 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will review and Discuss the controversial 2011 book Caesar's Messiah by Joseph Atwill. The subtitle of this work is: "The Roman Conspiracy to Invent Jesus and Atwell presents convincing evidence that the Flavian family of Roman patricians with the help of renegade Jewish historian Josephus, may have done exactly that.Atwell purposes that the Gospels were written by members of the Flavian family to make the Jesus story correspond with Titus's conquest of Judea and Jerusalem. He presents quotes from Josephus "War of Jews" to back this up. This will be a hard book for fundamental Christians but not for Gnostic Christians. Atwill holds off presenting his Imperial time-line until page 302, keeping the casual reader unaware that Christianity was flourishing and perishing in Rome long before the Gospels were written. So even though he may be correct about Roman influence on the Synoptic Gospels, he is wrong in assuming that Christianity began in Rome as a False-Flag operation. Perhaps the most shocking event described in the book is the alleged origin of the Christian Eucharist. Josephus recounts a wealthy Jewish mother killing and eating her infant son and offering part of him to her neighbors. Saying that he will be "A myth to the world." Of course Atwill is nice enough to suggest that Josephus wrote the dialogue but it still sent me to my copy of Josephus to make sure he wasn't exaggerating. He wasn't. So join us for an hour exploring gaslighting and false news in the first century.
