Participatory Spirituality for the 21st Century
Mark brought this one to my attention. From the blurb:
"This film interviews scholars who specialize in the origins of Christianity and it is based on the book, 'Caesar's Messiah' by Joseph Atwill, which sets about to prove that the Gospels were written at the behest of the ruling Flavian Dynasty of Rome by their Jewish allies who were fluent with Judaism but whose values were Roman, as wealthy Jewish representatives of the Roman government. The end result of the Gospels, they say, was the production of a new religion, which was also a form of Roman propaganda. This is not to say that the Gospels were not informed by sound, ethical teachings from Judaism and from the Stoic philosophy espoused by the Flavian Dynasty but they were ultimately about controlling the masses in a whole new, Statist way. As for the historical figure of Jesus, the scholars claim that there is no archeological evidence that such an individual existed but more likely, that the character was a composite of several Jewish prophets during the time of the Jewish-Roman War, who were crucified for their seditious, anti-Roman activities."
