Book Description

*** The biblical King Jesus was King Izas of Adiabene - the well-known leader of the Jewish Revolt. ***

This is most comprehensive and revolutionary reappraisal of biblical history. This book explains every facet and every character within the New Testament narrative, and places them within a real historical context.

Ralph starts by confirming and proving that the New Testament Saul (St Paul) was actually the historian Josephus Flavius. This may sound inconsequential, but this connection brings with it many new descriptions of the biblical family and the Jesus movement.

Contrary to orthodox perceptions, King Jesus and Queen Mary Magdalene were the richest couple in Syrio-Judaea. The Romans wanted to impose taxes on Jesus and Mary, provoking a bitter dispute which became known as the Jewish Revolt. King Jesus fought and lost that war, so he was crucified, reprieved and sent into exile in Roman England. In those remote lands, King Jesus became known King Arthur (the constellation of the Great Bear) and his twelve disciple-knights of the Round Last Supper Table (the Round Table was laid out as a zodiac).

This identification of Jesus as a wealthy, royal, warrior-hero of first century Judaea may sound bizarre, but that is what the texts say. All research and quotations are from original sources, including the New Testament, Tanakh, Talmud, Josephus, Origen, Eusebius, Irenaeus, Herodian, Suetonius, Tacitus, Clement etc:

Sequel to "Cleopatra to Christ".
Followed by "Jesus, King of Edessa"
See also "Mary Magdalene, Princess of Orange"

Updated edition, v9.1

Editorial Reviews


"Priests and kings were anointed ... hence the title 'christ' or 'messiah' often signified the same as 'king'." -- Commentary on the Bible, Adam Clarke, 1832

From the Publisher

This is the sequel to the book 'Cleopatra to Christ', which discovered that Jesus was descended from the Egyptian and Persian royal lines through Queen Cleopatra and King Phraates IV. This is why the Magi, Persian priesthood and kingmakers, came to the birth of Jesus. ... ...

The title 'King Jesus' takes this story several stages further, discovering exactly where Jesus and Mary founded their small city-state kingdom and the extent of their considerable wealth and influence.

Jesus wanted to become Emperor of Rome, just as the Talmud makes perfectly clear, and he had the finances, social influence and royal prestige to achieve this. While the Talmud and New Testament are clear that Jesus became High Priest of Jerusalem (in AD 63), he failed in his bid for emperorship and was reduced to imprisonment and penury. It was Vespasian who then became emperor (yes, in AD 70) and Jesus, the dangerous revolutionary, was sent into exile at the opposite end of the Empire - England. (The Talmud and Josephus confirm that these events occurred in the AD 60s.)

First, I'd like to say that I have read every book published by Ralph Ellis - cover-to-cover in detail, and all the appendices. They are that good. It is like reading an excellent mystery novel, except this is history! Outstanding scholarship, AND impressive lateral thinking.

(By the way, the chronologically first reviewer had no sense of Ellis' work. He skimmed for trivia, without wrapping his head around the larger issues surfaced in this book. He even admits only reading the first few pages. He is either a 'plant' for the orthodoxy, or a 'born again' type. The other reviewers cleave more to the true 'flavor' of the book.)

Now, to this book. Basically, Ellis states how his thinking was in his Acknowledgments page. "[This book] was intended as a joint effort on the subject of Saul-Josephus, but no agent or publisher was forthcoming and the project stalled. However, the concept still looked worthwhile, so I built it into an investigation into the entire New Testament."

With apologies to Ellis for 'reading him', this is probably what happened: Ellis did his usual excellent work, this time extending his earlier material on Saul-Josephus. The results clearly exposed some major inconsistencies in Biblical history. Various 'agents or publishers' took a look at his material, said "Oh, my God!", and either backed away slowly or ran screaming into the woods. They knew what a can of worms he was presenting them with. (Assuming no Orthodoxy freezeout.)

Ellis was then presented with either canning the project or making it acceptable in some way. I presume that he chose to 'water it down' or 'disguise it' by wrapping it in the Jesus and Grail materials (which DO provide much to think on).

4.0 out of 5 stars "King Jesus..." way worth the read! August 1, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Author Ralph Ellis has certainly impressed me with his exhaustive research and solid logic in most of his conclusions. Ellis is a great non-fiction storyteller and keeps the reader's interest moving along nicely.

The first half delves into the characters of Saul (St. Paul) and the 1st-century historian, Josephus Flavius, who both appear, through their identical families, travels, trials/tribulations, and writing styles, to have been the same individual. This section of the book also uncovers other 'Biblical' identities and offers an alternative, yet more plausible, timeline for New Testament events.

The second half begins by inspecting a 1st-century Roman garrison in Chester, England, containing a fountain in the center of a zodiacally-oriented Temple and separate bath quarters for a special 'exiled' prisoner of the Roman Empire; unusual in that it was built using the Thoth-cubit. Ellis then connects all the historical records and finds King Jesus of Gamala, his wives Mary & Martha, and the 12 Disciples engaged in the Jewish Wars, which ended with the fall of Jerusalem to the Romans in 70 A.D. John the Baptist, however, was beheaded in 33 A.D., according to the book's new timeline for Jesus.

Anyone interested in Grail lore should read Ellis' deconstruction of this saga in the book. His speculative arguments in favor of the King Jesus/King Arthur/wounded Fisher King characters, and how these 'myths' are linked to ancient Egyptian traditions, are on target. I do believe Jesus must have been the grandson of Cleopatra VII and Marc Antony, as Ellis suggests, in order to have the claim to the INRI/King of the Jews title.

A great read-- I've already read it twice on vacation! Highly recommended; Four & a half stars, points removed only for poor proofreading by Ellis' editor, though I am available!

5.0 out of 5 stars You must read this book! May 8, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Some parts of the book are a little speculative and not entirely proven. Mostly it has to be said with regard to the matters regarding the title:- the final destination of Jesus. He does not claim to have proven all this. It's very persuasive but not quite proven yet. What a shame about that shopping center!!

With regard to the rest of the book, the level of proof given is entirely devastating for Christianity! It is so much that it gets a little repetitive at times, from wanting to be absolutely thorough. He is extremely thorough and very logical. You do not need to be a theologian to get his proofs. But if you know the Bible and the works of Josephus and Qumran as well as I do then you start thinking "Why hasn't this been acknowledged centuries ago?", or "Why didn't I know that already?" (kick - kick!).

I have also read many books on "alternative history" but Ellis is the real deal. This is no alternative. This is real history, the way it should be written, based on evidence, logic and not on preconceptions or prejudice. In fact read all his books. I recommend all of them.

STUNNING:- This is the ONE that will still be talked about for as long as there are followers of "the Liar", trying to hide all the facts.

Also read his new book - Jesus King of Edessa, for the final nitty gritty where the real Jesus is absolutely found in various historical records! DEVASTATING! Forget the lies and read the truth instead!

Although, the Bible has a great moral tone for all mankind to follow and has filled the coffers of many that promote it, Josephus Flavius, alias Saul (St.Paul)being the first. Investigative author, Ralph Ellis says it ain't so in his book, King Jesus. Who would have thought that behind the scenes another story emerges of a wealthy man of royalty named Jesus, who had fought the Romans and lost. Survived a crucifixion and ended up as prisoner of the Romans in England, and in those part known as, King Arthur. What is the true story then? you decide, although I'm leaning towards......

More About the Author

Ralph Ellis has been researching biblical and Egyptian history for more than 30 years. Being independent from theological and educational establishments allows Ralph to tread where others do not dare, and it is through this independence that Ralph has discovered so many new biblical and historical truths.

Perhaps one of the biggest 'cover-ups' is the fact that the Israelites were originally Egyptians, the Hyksos Shepherd pharaohs who were ejected from Egypt in the 17th century BC. But this simple correlation colours the rest of biblical history, for it means that both King Solomon and King Jesus were also of Egyptian heritage.
