*Ancient Confession Found: ‘We Invented Jesus Christ’*Biblical scholars will be appearing at the ‘Covert Messiah’ Conference atConway Hall in London on the 19th of October to present this controversial discovery to the British public.

London (PRWEB UK) 8 October 2013American Biblical scholar Joseph Atwill will be appearing before theBritish public for the first time in London on the 19th of October topresent a controversial new discovery: ancient confessions recentlyuncovered now prove, according to Atwill, that the New Testament waswritten by first-century Roman aristocrats and that they fabricated theentire story of Jesus Christ. His presentation will be part of a one-daysymposium entitled “Covert Messiah” at Conway Hall in Holborn (full detailscan be found at http://www.covertmessiah.com.

Although to many scholars his theory seems outlandish, and is sure to upsetsome believers, Atwill regards his evidence as conclusive and is confidentits acceptance is only a matter of time. “I present my work with someambivalence, as I do not want to directly cause Christians any harm,” heacknowledges, “but this is important for our culture. Alert citizens needto know the truth about our past so we can understand how and whygovernments create false histories and false gods. They often do it toobtain a social order that is against the best interests of the commonpeople.

“Atwill asserts that Christianity did not really begin as a religion, but asophisticated government project, a kind of propaganda exercise used topacify the subjects of the Roman Empire. “Jewish sects in Palestine at thetime, who were waiting for a prophesied warrior Messiah, were a constantsource of violent insurrection during the first century,” he explains.”When the Romans had exhausted conventional means of quashing rebellion,they switched to psychological warfare. They surmised that the way to stopthe spread of zealous Jewish missionary activity was to create a competingbelief system. That’s when the ‘peaceful’ Messiah story was invented.Instead of inspiring warfare, this Messiah urged turn-the-other-cheekpacifism and encouraged Jews to ‘give onto Caesar’ and pay their taxes toRome.

“Was Jesus based on a real person from history? “The short answer is no,”Atwill insists, “in fact he may be the only fictional character inliterature whose entire life story can be traced to other sources. Oncethose sources are all laid bare, there’s simply nothing left.”Atwill’s most intriguing discovery came to him while he was studying “Warsof the Jews” by Josephus [the only surviving first-person historicalaccount of first-century Judea] alongside the New Testament.

“I started tonotice a sequence of parallels between the two texts,” he recounts.”Although it’s been recognised by Christian scholars for centuries that theprophesies of Jesus appear to be fulfilled by what Josephus wrote about inthe First Jewish-Roman war, I was seeing dozens more. What seems to haveeluded many scholars is that the sequence of events and locations of Jesusministry are more or less the same as the sequence of events and locationsof the military campaign of [Emperor] Titus Flavius as described byJosephus. This is clear evidence of a deliberately constructed pattern. Thebiography of Jesus is actually constructed, tip to stern, on prior stories,but especially on the biography of a Roman Caesar.

“How could this go unnoticed in the most scrutinised books of all time?”Many of the parallels are conceptual or poetic, so they aren’t allimmediately obvious. After all, the authors did not want the averagebeliever to see what they were doing, but they did want the alert reader tosee it. An educated Roman in the ruling class would probably haverecognised the literary game being played.” Atwill maintains he candemonstrate that “the Roman Caesars left us a kind of puzzle literaturethat was meant to be solved by future generations, and the solution to thatpuzzle is ‘We invented Jesus Christ, and we’re proud of it.'”Is this the beginning of the end of Christianity? “Probably not,” grantsAtwill, “but what my work has done is give permission to many of thoseready to leave the religion to make a clean break.

We’ve got the evidencenow to show exactly where the story of Jesus came from. AlthoughChristianity can be a comfort to some, it can also be very damaging andrepressive, an insidious form of mind control that has led to blindacceptance of serfdom, poverty, and war throughout history. To this day,especially in the United States, it is used to create support for war inthe Middle East.”Atwill encourages skeptics to challenge him at Conway Hall, where after thepresentations there is likely to be a lively Q&A session.

Joining Mr.Atwillwill be fellow scholar Kenneth Humphreys, author of the book “Jesus NeverExisted.”Further information can be found at
