"I heard rabbi Reuchlin on WFLA in Tampa back in 1998 touting his new revelation about the Piso conspiracy. I called into the show. I ask Mr. Reuchlin if he is the one who discovered this conspiracy? He replied others had told him about it but he is the one who figured it all out and who the players were in the Piso family who wrote the Septuagint and the New Testament books. I ask him if anyone else before had writen any of this and did he document who and what books or writings we could find them. He replied that only among the Jews was this known and they held it a tight secret."
This entire book seems to be an attempt to provide a scholarly justification for a view that originally came from some secret oral tradition. However, if there's a coherent proof here regarding this central point, I can't find it.
This book is also a critique of traditional scholarship which accepts ancient propaganda at face value without the needed exhaustive forensic research and background vetting. What of the famous quote attributed (also) to Pope Alexander VI (Rodrigo Borgia)? "It has served us well, this myth of Jesus." Did he utter it? Is it as totally cynical as it sounds? Was he being sarcastic?
The authors believe that there was a titanic struggle during this time of the New Testament's writing. Anti-slavery ideology preached by the Pharisees was inspiring groundswells of converts among slave populations. Slaver ideologues among the Roman "royal" classes began propagating a rival philosophy cuckooing the Judaic brand, but diverting social discontent toward a reward "not of this world."
