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.Atwill 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.
