What do fellow Quora members think of Joseph Atwill's "Caesar's Messiah"? Not being a Biblical scholar, I hesitate embracing its conclusion: that Jesus was a myth created by the Flavian Caesars.

Who cares what Joseph Atwill puts forth ?
What are you hesitating for ?
Jesus Christ went around saying that He was God .
Therefore anyone who suggests Jesus Christ was a myth is stating that Jesus Christ was a liar .
Jesus Christ was a part of God who walked in the flesh amongst mankind to reconcile all of us to Himself .
If you don’t believe that Jesus Christ was God then that makes Jesus Christ a liar .
Christ was, is and always will be the truth . The truth is the great separating force between good and evil, right and wrong, heaven and hell .
If you want absolute tangible proof of that than do the following and you will see the results:
Every time you see a Church building point and say ‘ That building was built to worship a liar’ .
Every time you see a cross point and say ‘ That cross is a symbol of Jesus Christ who was a liar’ .
Every time you hear the name Jesus Christ say ‘ Jesus Christ was a liar’.
Every time you see a Bible or anything Christian on any media point and say ‘ Jesus Christ was a liar ‘ .
Repeat those things every time . Not necessarily out loud to provoke others . You won’t be beaten with hands . You spirit, the very intellect of your soul, will be beat down to a state of inconsolable anguish within one year .
If you entertain the thought that
Jesus Christ was a myth
then don’t try to play the spineless passive harmless card . Be somebody and be proud to be a non-believer . Nobody including God respects the snivelling finger pointing critics that sit on a fence .
Non-believers have a point
. Who was this Guy Jesus Christ anyway ? He was born in a barn 2000 years ago then nothing mentioned until he was 12 when his parents left him behind while heading home from vacation .
Then this Guy Jesus Christ, now 30, dips on his carpenters job to trip around with his buddy’s wearing sandals and a sheet giving out fish sandwiches .
He walked into churches flipping tables, picking fights and telling the lead clergy that their father was the devil and that he was God .
He only lived until he was 33 years old, never went to a seminary, never got around more than 50 miles from his place of birth, never accumulated a dime, never asked for a dime .
No-one could ever say they saw Jesus Christ sin, but for some reason Jesus Christ was hated by the religious authority of the time . The military police state governing authority found him innocent of any crime . Jesus Christ wasn't trying to start a revolution . The outnumbered governing authority recognized the civil unrest that the religious authority could cause and handed Jesus Christ over .
The religious authority had this man Jesus Christ nailed to a wooden cross to suffer a torturous, humiliating brutal death . This just didn’t
‘happen’ .
This was
Jesus Christ fulfilling prophesy to the letter .
Jesus Christ did Not compromise with evil even under the most excruciating circumstances . In doing so He executed the most selfless act of love and compassion beyond our present comprehension . This in turn was the Only way to set up a valid legit kingdom of peace beyond our present comprehension .
In other words if Jesus Christ had compromised with evil to get Himself off the cross before expiring then the promised Kingdom of God would be corrupt .
It is right now today your freewill choice pertaining to where you go when you die .
Two thousand years after His death He lives in a book that is about Him that has been the best seller worldwide for two thousand years running .
There are hundreds of thousands of buildings that have been constructed and are still being constructed world wide to worship this guy who died two thousand years ago named Jesus Christ .
Billions of people past and present have dedicated their lives to Jesus Christ .
Humanity counts the years since He was crucified . It is the year of the Lord 2020 .
People do these things in reverence to Jesus Christ still today two thousand years later because of the things He did and said . You would be hard pressed to find any human on earth above the age of twenty that has not heard of Jesus Christ . (outside North Korea)
Of course the religious authority used the governing authority to try to wipe out any trace of Jesus Christ . But they couldn’t . By denying Christ or by being dedicated to Christ you are validating what even the demons knew, Jesus Christ was and is God .
