The remainder of Acharya's argument is based on extremely wayward comparison with Apollonius of Tyana. ... There is no excuse for Acharya to continue with the bizarre description of Apollonius as 'the Nazarene', which he was not.

Did Jesus exist? In recent years there has been a massive upsurge in public discussion of the view that Jesus did not exist. This view first found a voice in the 19th century, when Christian views were no longer taken for granted. Some way into the 20th century, this school of thought was largely thought to have been utterly refuted by the results of respectable critical scholarship (from both secular and religious scholars). Now, many unprofessional scholars and bloggers ('mythicists'), are gaining an increasingly large following for a view many think to be unsupportable. It is starting to influence the academy, more than that it is starting to influence the views of the public about a crucial historical figure. Maurice Casey, one of the most important Historical Jesus scholars of his generation takes the 'mythicists' to task in this landmark publication. Casey argues neither from a religious respective, nor from that of a committed atheist. Rather he seeks to provide a clear view of what can be said about Jesus, and of what can't.

What is Christianity? Who was Jesus Christ? What relevance does Christianity have in a post-Christian age? Why are there so many Christian sects, and what are the prospects for bringing them together? Does Christianity have a future? Am I a Christian? Are you? The two volumes of Christianity: the One, the Many, offer encouraging answers and options for modern spiritual seekers. This first volume focuses on the life and teachings of Jesus and the evolution of Christianity over its first millennium. The institutional church of the Middle Ages imposed standardized beliefs and practices in place of the spontaneity and pluralism of apostolic times. But standardization was never complete, and alternative religious forms survived. The Gnostic, Celtic, Coptic, and Cathar Churches represent important variants. Finally, in the 11th century, mainstream Christianity split into western and eastern branches. The organizational structure, clerical roles, doctrines and religious practices of the medieval church are studied in some detail, laying groundwork for the examination of western Christianity in Volume 2. The major variants are discussed, as well as the development of the Eastern Orthodox Churches through modern times. The exploration of religious forms that may be less familiar to western readers provides a glimpse into how Christianity as a whole might have developedand directions it could take in the future. Insertion of little-known facts helps bring the historical survey alive. A masterpiece of research, insight and faith A must-read for believers and nonbelievers alike. Now I know theres a place in Christianity for me

The way to maintain a Christianized falsehood is to stigmatize the real truth to such an extent that it would be heresy to even listen to it. For one who is seeking historical truth . . . A record held sacred is for the most part fundamentally vitiated [vitiated (Random House): 1. spoiled; marred. 2. perverted; corrupted. 3. rendered invalid] (Tacitus, 1, 2, 13; p. 2556). What does Christianity teach man? Christianity teaches that the human race is depraved, fallen, and sinful (D. James Kennedy, Why I Believe, World Publishing, 1980). This book is about the Christian leadership, which planned from the very beginning to deceive mankind, force feed mankind with their intellectual arrogance, convolutions, superstitions, and boldly admit to it; fabricating lies so preposterous and so deliberately outlandish that even the saints, who also obliged Christian subjects with their theological tunnel vision, had to write of them. The series of books entitled In His Name will virtually challenge everything you have been taught about Christianity. Just because something is old or of antiquity does not necessarily mean that it is the Truth! (1 Timothy). Christian apologists proclaim that Christianity is not only a Revelation of Divine Truth; it is also the Inspiration to a more virtuous life (excerpt from The History of the Orthodox Church by Rev. Constantine Callinikos). Time itself will someday expose the fallacies of their faith, a faith that not only deceives its followers but a faith that will also condemn them and condemn all constructive sacred learning. ________________________________________ Oh, what a tangled web we weave . . . When first we practice to deceive! (Sir Walter Scott). ________________________________________ Why do Christian churches refuse to let their congregations read of the beginnings of their faith? Why does the Christian Church refuse to allow their membership to read of the original authors? Why does the Church equate suffering with virtue? This book will challenge your beliefs. It is meant to get one to think rationally, sensibly, realistically. However, one must know that most churches do not want you to think rationally; they would rather you not think at all. At one time, the Catholic Church even issued guidelines as to which books a university could, with permission, disseminate to its students, and even the works of Aristotle [the Prince of Philosophers] and the Holy Bible itself were actually forbidden.

A remarkable revelation concerning the true character, life and crucifixion of Jesus by eye-witnesses who knew him, based on the Safed & Alexandrian Essene Scrolls.
In fact, it has been claimed that “historical” details later added to the gospel version of the mythos were taken from the life of Apollonius the Nazarene. In this theory, Apollonius was also called “Apollos,” or “Paulus” in Latin.

In this highly controversial and explosive book, archaeologist, historian, mythologist and linguist Acharya S. marshals an enormous amount of startling evidence to demonstrate that Christianity and the story of Jesus Christ were created by members of various secret societies, mystery schools and religions in order to unify the Roman Empire under one state religion. In developing such a fabrication, this multinational cabal drew upon a multitude of myths and rituals that existed long before the Christian era, and reworked them for centuries into the religion passed down to us today. Contrary to popular belief, there was no single man who was at the genesis of Christianity; Jesus was many characters rolled into one. These characters personified the ubiquitous solar myth, and their exploits were well known, as reflected by such popular deities as Mithras, Heracles/Hercules, Dionysos and many others throughout the Roman Empire and beyond. The story of Jesus as portrayed in the Gospels is revealed to be nearly identical in detail to that of the earlier savior-gods Krishna and Horus, who for millennia preceding Christianity held great favor with the people. The Christ Conspiracy shows the Jesus character as not unique or original, not “divine revelation.” Christianity reinterprets the same extremely ancient body of knowledge that revolved around the celestial bodies and natural forces. The result of this myth making has been “The Greatest Conspiracy Ever Sold.” .
