Though my new work is entitled Shakespeare’s Secret Messiah and reveals an entirely new understanding of Shakespeare, it also shows the real meaning of Paul and the Book of Revelation. As I show in the book, Shakespeare is completely based upon the Flavian typology and cannot be understood without first understanding all of the New Testament.
One of the fun aspects of Shakespeare’s Secret Messiah is that it shows the comedy that exists within Revelation, the mysterious work that has baffled Christians and scholars for millennium. In fact, Revelation is Flavian vanity at its highest level and is therefore cryptic but readers of my analysis will understand that its symbolism is really quite obvious and should have been decoded centuries earlier.
Perhaps the most obvious symbolic concept is the fact that the ‘angels’ of Revelation Chapter 8 are the defied Caesars. This enables Revelation to be understood as having been produced by Domitian’s imperial cult.

I am posting this five-star review in support of Joe Atwill and in opposition to the many vicious and personal attacks that have been posted on the Internet against him. Atwill’s most severe critics are atheists, humanists and freethinkers from the Christ Mythicist camp, such as Robert Price, Richard Carrier, and Tom Verenna, who (one might imagine) would be his natural allies. However: Continue reading

Richard Carrier has written a recent critique of Caesar’s Messiah that can be viewed at his website freethoughtblogs.com. The article is a slanderous tantrum consisting of little more than child-like insults, analytic blunders and outright inaccuracies.
The story began several years ago when I contacted Carrier (PhD) because he was publically criticizing Caesar’s Messiah in an incoherent manner that clearly indicated he had not read the book. I wrote:
“Dear Mr. Carrier: Continue reading

When I speak with Christians, many describe the spiritual growth their relationship with Jesus has given them. I know they are sincere but I always wonder how they would feel about Jesus if they were forced to take an Oath of Fealty to his earthly representative. Continue reading
