The narrative style is challenging. There were a number of typos in the version of the book I read. Some assertions put forth may not persuade and are not advances. Nevertheless, what the author gets right is tectonically important for understanding the Works of Josephus and the New Testament. It is so also for Christian theology, Latter Day Saints theology, and Muslim theology that is tied to Jesus.
Objective Hebrew Studies are also enriched here. That point is arguable to the extent that within Hebrew Studies, Queen Helena is thoroughly explored. What Ralph Ellis writes about Queen Helena in this book is monumentally important.
At Marble Collegiate Church, former pastor Dr. Arthur Caliandro used to have an annual trialogue sermon: a Jewish minister (rabbi), a Christian minister (himself), and a Muslim minister (imam). Queen Helena is monumentally important to the Judeo-Christian dialogue, for she had an "only begotten son." The theological discussions between Jew, Christian, and Muslim are at a groundbreaking moment.
Part of the 40% completion of the search for the historical Jesus is to be found in a book I only reviewed as being worthy of two stars. How this book earned its two stars can be found by the chapters that earned an A-, A, or A+. Please see my 2-star review of:
Caesar's Messiah: The Roman Conspiracy to Invent Jesus: Flavian Signature Edition
In the chapter, Emmanuel, Ralph Ellis puts forth that James, "the brother of Jesus" is Manahem and that Manahem is King Manu V. Josephus gives an account of the death of James and he gives an account of the death of Manahem. They cannot be reconciled into a compilation.
Ralph Ellis does this with Jesus of Gamala and the biblical Jesus. Again, these two personages cannot be reconciled into a compilation because the accounts of their deaths are different.

There is so much evidence here and it is so tightly argued that it is difficult to see how a sane person will continue believe all the lies that have been told about 'Jesus'.
The authors of the New Testament and the main historical 'source' of the era did such a thorough job in destroying evidence relating to 'Jesus' and the real history of the Early Christian Church, that sometimes it seems difficult to get at the truth!
Ralph Ellis has done a brilliant job, in his series of books on this topic, to dispel the lies and give plenty of evidence and reasoned argument to reconstruct the true history of this 1st Century King.
It's no wonder that Christians are in paroxysms! They thought they had destroyed enough to hide the truth for ever! They didn't!
As a personal note, Ellis talks about one letter written from prison after the fall of Jerusalem. Ellis thinks that it is likely to have been written (perhaps under duress, or semi dictated by his captors) by one of the leaders of the Jewish Rebellion. I'm going further than Ellis here, in believing that this was written (under duress) by the great man himself! And if so it may be, apart from parts of the Dead Sea Scrolls, the only writing of Jesus that remains! I found this an emotional moment, even though I'm no longer a Christian! Sure this bit can't be proved, in the way that Ellis has proved so much in his books. So?
I'm now just wanting to find out what Jesus really believed - cos it sure wasn't "Christianity"!

Ellis uses this one weird trick. Jesus turned the frogs gay.
Historians with discipline hate this guy.
