Harvard's First Century History by John Duran HARVARD'S 1ST CENTURY HISTORY Version 1.2 BY: JOHN DURAN, P.O. BOX 227, POMONA, CALIF. 91769 COPYRIGHT 1987, 1992 JOHN DURAN 'HARVARD'S 1ST CENTURY HISTORY' is the most complete (overall), yet concise, reconstruction of the events that occurred in the 1st & 2nd century that is currently available to the public. The bulk of information on this disk is from a book by John Duran titled 'THE ORIGIN OF CHRISTIANITY'. However, this disk gets its title from 'the place' from which the bulk of 'source' material was obtained - the 'HARVARD' UNIVERSITY PRESS ( See 'Ref&sour.ces' ). FORWARD This book was written to tell how and why the Roman Piso Family wrote the New testament. The Jews, who were tired of being ruled over by the Roman Aristocrasy, were lead in their third great revolt against Rome since 6 C.E., in 60 C.E., by Benjamin the Egyptian of the Pharisaic Party. Though they were defeated by the Romans, the Romans knew that something had to be done. So, about the year 60, certain people were getting together a plan to regain control of the Jewish masses. Seneca the Rhetorician, Lucius Piso, Gaius Piso, and their relatives figured to give the Jews a new rhetorical religion. Lucius Piso, with assistance from Seneca, wrote 'Ur Markus' there abouts that year. They had much planned around this new religion. With this first book, they had hoped to start a new Messiahonic Jewish religion. Though the Aristocratic Jewish hierarchy i.e., the Herodians, were anxious to regain control of the masses through this new religion, Nero had not approved of it. Nero's mistress was pro-Jewish (meaning 'humanistic'), and he wanted to avoid war with the Jewish zealots (Pharisees), but most of all he was angry because this side of his family had undertook this without his knowledge or approval. What happened was in 65 C.E., they conspired against Nero. One of the conspiritors turned informer. 'Milichus' told Nero who the chief conspiritors were, and Nero quickly retaliated, ordering the deaths of Seneca and Gaius Piso among others. Nero spared Gaius Piso's son Arrius, but sent him to Syria to serve in exile. Arrius Piso commanded Syria, gathered forces and support, and instigated war with the Pharisees. The Jews were not buying his Uncle's story, his father was dead, Nero didn't approve of it; so, Arrius' Uncle adopted him, and therefore became the father of the person that would play Jesus. They figured to destroy the Jews, and build Romanized Judaism - without the Jews! And they would even use Nero to help do it. Until Nero got wise to what they were doing. Nero ordered his apparently faithful General (and relative) Corbulo to commit suicide. In 66 C.E., Nero exiled Arrius Piso again, for trying to start war with the 'Jewish zealots' in order that Nero would back him in his attempt to destroy the Temple in Jerusalem. This time Arrius was exiled to the Roman province of Pannonia in central Europe, away from Syria and the Jews. Arrius Piso had Epaphroditius, Nero's slave, to kill Nero for him in 68. Galba became Emperor (Galba was a direct descendant of Augustus Caesar, and father of Otho). Galba named Licinianus Frugi Piso as his successor instead of his son Otho. Galba was overthrown in that same year by his son Otho, who was overthrown by another family member Vitellius. Vitellius was the father-in-law of Julius Gnaeus Agricola. Agricola was the father-in-law of Justus Piso, Claudia Phoebe, Domitia Paulina 1, T. Flavius Clemens, and Cornelius Tacitus! It was Arrius Piso himself who succeeded in defeating Vitellius, thereby securing Rome for Vespasian. Vespasian, in turn helped Arrius to destroy the Temple in Jerusalem in the year 70 C.E. Vespasian already had his son Titus laying siege on Jerusalem, so Arrius could go with his legions to finish up the job. But they weren't finished with the Jews yet. For Arrius, it was fairly clear sailing from here; for he, and the Flavian side of his family owned the entire known world! He inherited title to all of the books in the Ptolemic Library in Alexandria, Egypt. Circa 100 B.C.E., the total of books in the Ptolemic Library was over half a million. Arrius also had all of the books in Judea and he started gathering up books in Rome so that he could re-write history. Once he had obtained all the books he could, either by buying them or confiscating them, he burned all but certain books. He jokes about this in Acts 19:19. The Pisos maintained a barrage of slave scribes to churn out propaganda against the Jews. While the first books of the New Testament were only mildly giving inferences against the Jews, the New Testament became increasingly anti-semetic. Arrius Piso wallowed in rhetorical devices. He played the part of his enemies by writing as Josephus and at the same time historisizing the Jesus character whom he was also playing. Both Josephus and the New Testament are full of names and allusions to relatives and ancestors. They wanted us to be able to re-construct their lineage and the parts in which they played in the great battle. Gaius Piso, who was put to death (by suicide) by Nero was the father of Arrius Piso. When Arrius' father died, his Uncle Lucius (Gaius Piso's brother), married his mother Mariamne (Arria the Younger). Arrius' mother was the daughter of T. Flavius Sabinus 2 (Vespasian's brother) and the Elder Arria. So, Arrius (Josephus) was already a Flavian! But wait, other 'historians' mention 'Christ' or 'Christians' don't they? Let's take a look at them. Tacitus, Pliny the Younger, and Suetonius. Tacitus was married to Flavia Domitilla 3 after T. Flavius Clemens was killed by Domitian. I think that Tacitus was the son (or half-son) of Nerva (a form of 'Nero'), and a cousin of Trajan (and thereby also a nephew of Otho). If so, then his mother was Otho's sister Ulpia Plautia Domitia and Trajan's first wife was Tacitus' sister Ulpia, afterwards, Trajan married Arrius Piso's daughter Claudia Phoebe Pompeia Plotina. Pliny was a friend of Arrius' and had already been related to the family before he married Arrius Piso's granddaughter - Calpurnia! And Suetonius was Arrius Piso's grandson by Claudia Phoebe and her first husband Rufus. Later, Suetonius became the Emperor Antoninus Pius. Oh yes, and let's not forget that other fellow who could have been Josephus' son (and was!), Justin Martyr. Justin Martyr was Arrius Piso's son, Fabius Justus Calpernius Piso. All of the knowledge that humanity would have had to enable it to get past the stumbling block of Christianity was lost when Arrius Piso burned it. After doing so, Arrius and his family went about building a whole new world centered around Christianity! They synthesized ideologies for the masses, while they themselves were above the laws that they made. They did things secretly to enhance their epistemological capacities, while stiffling that of the masses. Humanity had already known that the Earth revolves around the Sun, instead of visa versa. But the family was busy setting the clock of wisdom back for the masses. Arrius Piso's grandson who was the brother of Suetonius/Antonius Pius, wrote as Ptolemy and held our knowledge of astronomy back 1800 years. His real name was Flavius Arrianus, and he also wrote as Arrian and Appian. Within the following pages, I will give profiles of the various family members along with genealogical charts showing lineage and their respective places within the family. Originally, it was agreed to by the family that Christianity would only last a certain amount of time and that all should be eventually revealed, but then they realized that if they told the masses how they'd been fooled, there'd be an uprising and the family members who were ruling would be subject to the wrath of the masses, instead of visa versa. So, Antoninus Pius was careful to treat the masses kindly, lest they found out, and would kill him and his family. But I want you to know that what doesn't come through in the references that I may cite; is the familiarity that I have with the people, motives, psychology, environment, writing style, rhetoric, and everything else that I know about the writings, time, and people that we are examining. This, you have to confirm for yourself. And that is the hard part, because I don't want to say; "Look, I know this, just take my word for it." So, what do I advise you to do? Study, and be objective. Learn how to learn. Leave behind superstition and confusion, learn to see what you really are, be happy in the many better things that you will be able to give society - for, in this, the best things will begin with you! Another thing that ought to raise your suspicion is the illusion that is put out to the general public of how long ago it was that the New Testament was written, and that the people of that time were stupid, and that there is little left to us from that time. I will show where to look. When they went about destroying books, they kept Aristotle, not because of their descent from him alone, but because his rhetorical 'logic' was consistant with the 'teachings' of Christianity. Also, there were many books that they could not entirely destroy. Even what was written by their own family was censored by excluding it from the canon if it too boldly hinted at the synthesis of Christianity. Between Abelard Reuchlin and I, he is the more expert in the feuds within the family. Part of the family wanted to be lax in pushing Christianity (especially once they had all but destroyed the Jews). On the scale of control by emotionalism, they set as the new enemies of the emotionally enthralled Christians, the Stoics. When they first laid the groundwork for Christianity, they cultivated the minds of the masses with superstition. There are several instances in Josephus, Suetonius, and Ptolemy. Some of the later bishops (who were family members) omitted 'The Revelation' in retaliation to Julius (who wrote it) for opposing the family. It was like a thorn in their side. Cyril, Bishop of Jerusalem in 340 omitted Rev. from his canon. And in 364, the Council of Bishops assembled in Laodicea and agreed to omit 'Revelations'. In 370, it was re-enstated in the catalog by Bishop Epiphanius. But five years later, Bishop Gregory Nazianzen omits it again. And in 380, Bishop Philastrius omits the Revelation from his canon. Why would they want to omit 'Revelations'? It's the perfect ending to the Jesus story, but it contained more hints and allusions concerning the authorship of the New Testament than any other book. It contained the famous reference to 666, the mark of the beast, and it had checking numbers, etc. These things will be shown to you and explained in the following chapters. I hesitate to say exactly how the Jews of today fit into this, except that I hope that after reading all of what I have to say here that you will understand. It was noted by Abelard Reuchlin that the dots under the Hebrew letters helped aid in alluding to the Pisos. In the Talmud, there are many allusions to the Pisos and what they did. This is why the Jews are the Chosen People. They are the witnesses to what the Pisos did. That is the true reason for the continuance of their religion. They used it as an excuse to hide and save this information in order that Christianity may someday come to an end, thereby giving Beth Hillel (Humanism) another chance. In the talmud, we find references like; "The Horse (ippos, Piso) wrote Matthew," and "Rabbi Joseph (Josephus) wrote Matthew." When you have read this book, these seemingly obscure remarks will start to make sense, and you will see why the Jews went through all of the things that they did (Ref. 'Jewish Expressions on Jesus', Weiss Rossarin, KTAV Publishing House, New York, 1977). The literature of the Jews hold much of what is needed to unravel 'the mystery of the Gospels'. That is, that the Pisos wrote them! Though the Jews lost the war with the Romans, many of them knew what the Romans were doing with these 'Gospels'. Much of this information was kept, but hidden. It is present within the Jewish customs, tradition, literature, commentaries, holidays, and prayer books. Most notibly, in the first Babylonian (Jewish) prayer book, the 'Amram Gaon', and later in Parthia in the 'Saadia Gaon'. Dr. Sigmund Freud would have had a great bit to write about had he had known that the true origin of society's synthesized ideologies came from a bunch of murderers pretending to be 'holy' Church Fathers and laying the foundation for laws to keep the masses in their place (a synthesized place made by the murderers themselves!). By the way, I give the name of this book in honor of two great people, each great in their own right. First, 'The Origin of Christianity' is part of the title of 'Christ and the Caesars' by Bruno Bauer (1877). And secondly, it is given to honor the memory and works of Charles Darwin, by using 'The Origin of' portion of his famous 'world-changing' title 'The Origin of Species' (1859). INTRODUCTION I am only the third person to write about this publicly. The reason? It is extremely dangerous. Most of the world as we know it, is based firmly upon the idea and acknowledgement of a Christian god. There is only a small portion of people who know what I'm about to explain in this book - they are called the 'Inner-Circle' and they consist of people with both good and not-so-good intentions. Some proclaim themselves to be Christians even though they know the origin of Christianity. Some are Scholars, Popes, Evangelists, and rulers of countries. The first person to write about this publicly was Bruno Bauer. His work pointed to the Romans as the authors of the New Testament, and most specifically, Josephus. His best book on the subject was probably 'Christ and the Caesars' ('Chrestus Und Die Caesaren') published in Berlin in 1877. As far as I know, there are not as yet any translations of this book in English. The second person to write about this subject publicly is Abelard Reuchlin, who in 1973 started piecing together his theory that the Romans who wrote the New Testament were mentioned and alluded to in Jewish history and tradition. Abelard is fluent in Hebrew, Aramaic, and Yiddish. He also knows Latin and Greek. Abelard wrote the first edition of his 'The True Authorship of the New Testament' in 1979. A second edition was written in 1986 (This 2nd edition was a 27 page booklet). And I started my research in 1971, when I was 11. I got started by wondering about the meaning of the numbers in the Bible. By 1979, I had reached the conclusion that Josephus was the inventer of Jesus. I abandoned my study of the subject for years. Then, in 1985, I started again briefly only to abandon the subject again. One year passed, and once again, I was hot on the trail of the Pisos. In 1986, I got a hold of a copy of 'The True Authorship of the New Testament' and began comparing it to my own studies. Early in 1987 (March), I wrote a pamplet titled 'Ipso facto Piso', which originally consisted of only 18 pages. Since then, I have written several pamplets, each of which were meant to be chapters of this book. This book will take you on a quest or journey to find the origin of Christianity. Once the true origin is found, the 'mystery' of the Gospels will be revealed. By writing this book, I may be letting the cat out of the bag, I may even be spilling the beans! The history that even the best of scholars today rely upon is the 'history' of the Roman side (the winning side) of the war. There was history written by those who were being destroyed by the Romans - the Jews! But hardly anyone but the Jews themselves ever read it. Until you've heard both sides, you haven't heard any! - JOHN DURAN SCHOLARLY PUBLISHING, Box 227, Pomona, CA 91769 Copyright 1990, John Duran FLAVIUS JOSEPHUS WAS A PEN NAME OF ARIUS CALPURNIUS PISO. The author explains the many pen names used by the Pisos in both their public and their secret Christian writings. And he explains the code systems used. Two thousand years ago no copyright system existed. Therefore the Pisos inserted codes and allusions which represented themselves, to insure that no later author could claim their work. The code system which the Pisos used included sounds, animal allusions, and three basic numerical code systems: Greek small numbering, large numbering, and the sequence system. These were all refinements of Pythagorean "mathematics." THE INNER CIRCLE - MANY OF THE WORLD'S GREAT SCHOLARS, POET LAUREATES, WRITERS, POLITICIANS, DICTATORS, THEOLOGIANS, CHURCH LEADERS KNOW THE GREAT SECRET. SHOULDN'T YOU!!

CONAN DOYLE, VERNE, BAUM, TOLKIEN, ad infinitum. The booklet explains how this information has been used by religious leaders to control events on a human level. 'THE BEGINNING' Doesn't it seem at least slightly suspicious that the New Testament should be written at a time when Rome was at war with the Jews? And that the public 'history' that we have from the time is from the winning side. The Roman side! This is the chronological account of not only how history was re-written, but also why the New Testament was written, and by whom, and how, and for what purpose. This tells the 'real' history of biblical times between 19 C.E. and 192 C.E. First, know that there is a hidden war going on, it is now in progress, and it is the result of the conspiracy that was initiated back in the first century C.E. A partial list of the original conspirators include: Lucius A. Senaca, Galba, Pliny the Younger, Lucius Calpernius Piso * (Caesoninus), Arrius Calpernius Piso (A.K.A. 'Flavius Josephus'), Vespasian, Titus (Vespasian's son), Justus Calpernius Piso (A.K.A. 'Justin Martyr'). The same name as the Lucius Piso whose daughter married Julius Caesar - Lucius Calpernius Piso Caesoninus. That earlier Lucius Piso was in fact, also a Caesar! He was Julius Caesar's father's brother (That's right, his uncle!). And Lucia Calpernia Piso was his first cousin. Marc Antony was Julius Caesar's 2nd uncle. Now, I will fill you in on some of the pertinent factors and motives of the time. There were many battles fought between the Romans and the Jews, on the field, and on paper - as propaganda. Why? Well, for one thing, the Roman aristocratic way of life was at stake. It was one in which slavery played a major part. The Roman way of life was one based on power and control; the control of other people. The Jewish way of life was not tolerant of slavery, because it went against the humanistic teachings of Hillel the Pharisee. After the death of King Herod, the Herodian Priests were losing control of the Jewish masses, because of this new Pharisaic Party of Humanistic Jews. Philippians 3:12 "Be all of you subject one to another, having your conversion 'honest' among the Gentiles" At first, they tried to give this new religion to the Jews (new wine in old bottles), but when the Jews wouldn't accept it, they went to give it to the Gentiles (new wine in new bottles), and destroy the Jews. The proportion of Jews (Jewish Beth Hillel, zealots/Pharisees), in the Roman empire by the late 50's C.E. was over 20%. As humanistic Jews, they were a threat to the Roman way of life, i.e., aristocratic. So, a few conspiritors in the hierarchy decided to give the Jews a new religion - Christianity. They synthesized this new religion, and based it upon the already existant Jewish religion, and using the Jewish books, they customized it to fit the Roman way of life. The New Testament books were written after the supposed fact, so that it was easy for them to be self-fulfilling. The first 'Christian' book written was 'Ur Marcus', which was the proto- type for the book 'Mark' that was written by Arrius Piso. 'Ur Marcus' was written by Lucius (Lucillius) Calpernius Caesoninus Piso in about the year 60 C.E. (Perhaps closer to the year 62 C.E.). Even theologians agree that chronologically 'Mark' would come before 'Matthew'. The main conspirators at this time included: Seneca, Galba, Lucius Piso, Gaius Piso, and Seneca's nephew 'Lucan the Poet'. Arrius Piso was 28 years old in 65 C.E. The book 'Ur Marcus' was given to the Jews, who soon rejected it. Of course, they maintained a company of their own private slaves which they used as scribes to make copies of their books to distribute to the masses, after which the slaves were killed. This practice was copied after the Egyptian Pharaoes' practice of killing the slaves who worked on the inner-chamber of the Pyramids. For, these slaves also worked on the inner-circle of the 'triangle' (the new trinity). Next, the book 'Ur Marcus' was given to slaves and gentiles, who bought it hook, line, and sinker. This new group of followers were called 'Gentile Christians', or non-Jewish Christians. In 66 C.E., Arrius Piso deliberately provoked the Jewish revolt so that he could pave the way to destroying the Temple because the Jews were not accepting his Uncle's story 'Ur Marcus', which was intended to pacify the Jews. About the year 70, Lucius Piso wrote another book called 'Ur Matthias' (the two books that went to the Logia, 'Ur Marcus' and 'Ur Matthias' were written by Lucius Piso). Lucius Piso died in the year 73 C.E., that was when Arrius Piso inherited his works. By the year 70, Arrius Piso and Titus' army had destroyed the Temple in Jerusalem. Somewhere between the year 70 and 75, Arrius Piso re-wrote his Uncle's books and gave his Uncle's fictional messiah the name 'Jesus'. It was Arrius Piso who thought to name the character 'Jesus', because it was Joseph (Josephus) who was the father of the fictional Jesus in the story. Now, when writing the books of the New Testament, Arrius borrowed the characteristics for his characters from earlier proto-types. The character for Jesus and even the concept of the trinity, was borrowed from the already ancient Egyptian equivalent of the Holy family. Osiris/Joseph - the father who is a lesser god than the son; Isis/Mary - the virgin mother; and their son Horus, who was the equivalent of Jesus ( they even made a 'Horus-Caesar' as a joke in Egypt, Ref. 'The Nile', Emil Ludwig, pg. 417 ). Also, some of the characteristics used to create the Jesus character and some of the 'sayings' that they used, were borrowed from Hillel the Pharisee. This was all too obvious to the Jews, and especially to the Rabbis of the day, who for the most part, were relatives (descendants) of Hillel (Beth Hillel). These same were also relatives (distant?) of the Pisos, for they also were descendants of King David. Arrius Piso used 'Hercules' to contribute the following attributes and characteristics to his Jesus character: 1. The 'Prince of Peace' title, 2. The virgin mother, 3. a father who was a god,... and 4. he too was 'the only begotten son' of his 'god father' (father, god), 5. Hercules too was called 'savior', and 6. had the title 'the good shepherd', and 7.,Hercules also died and went for a brief visit to hell (Hades),after which, he then ascended to Heaven (the heavens). By 75 C.E., Arrius Piso had revised the book 'Ur Marcus' and we now know that book as the book 'Mark' of the New Testament. Of course, with all of these things going on, and with new conspiritors on the rise, the conspiritors didn't want to attract any suspicion, but at the same time, they needed a system in which they could not only keep track of their own material (propaganda), but also keep their identities secret, yet still be able to claim authorship - for both prosperity and their own egos. 2:2, The Epistles of Paul the Apostle to Seneca (Anneas Seneca, d. 65 C.E.); "For you know when, and by whom, at what seasons, and to whom I must deliver every thing which I send", (ref. Apocryphal New Testament). The fact of the matter is, that Seneca did not live long enough to see any other 'Christian' books or paraphernalia except 'Ur Marcus' - the proto-type for the book 'Mark'. The Epistles of Paul the Apostle were written by Justus Calpernius Piso, and realizing this, it would also be realized that Seneca had long been departed. Justus didn't start writing until the late 90's C.E., when he helped his dad and Pliny write 'Acts of the Apostles'. Now that you have been briefed on the background of the conspiracy, here is a chronological synopsis. Germanicus Caesar was the nephew and adopted son of the Roman Emperor Tiberius. Germanicus was born in 15 B.C.E., and died in 19 C.E., when he was poisioned by Cnaeus Calpernius Piso, the Governer of Syria. Cnaeus C. Piso was the father of Gaius, Marcus, & Lucius Calpernius Piso. Cnaeus died in 20 C.E. Gaius Calpernius Piso was the father of Arrius Calpernius Piso a.k.a. Flavius Josephus. The Pisos were Romans and Arrius was also technically a Jew by descent because his mother was a Jew (or rather, a descendant of the Jewish hierarchy), his mother was Mariam (Arria the Younger) the Great-Granddaughter of King Herod the Great. Arrius C. Piso was born in the year 37 C.E. The Younger Arria was the daughter of Arria the Elder who was the wife of Caecina Paetus. Caecina Paetus was involved in a conspiracy of Scribonianus' against the Emperor Claudius in 42 C.E., and was condemned to death. Paetus' wife, Arria, did not wish to survive him and took her life with him - by dagger. The Younger Arria found herself in the same situation in the year 65 C.E. with her husband Thrasea Paetus (Gaius Piso), but her husband begged her to live for the sake of their children. Philo of Alexandria died about 45 C.E., and Philo mentioned Pilate in connection with the incident concerning the Roman shields, but he did not, nor could he, make any mention of Jesus or the Christian story (the works of 'Philo' are suspect also). If, he was a real person other than Arrius Piso, he was a relative of Arrius Piso through the Herods of Judea. 'Philo' mentioned 'Pilate', not 'Pontius' Pilate, because 'Pontius' was added to the name later, as Pliny was helping Arrius write 'Luke'. Arrius Piso honored Pliny by adding the name 'Pontius' as a variant of the name of the Province in which Pliny was in charge - Pontus. So, that gave Pliny the nickname 'Pontius'. In and around the year 55 C.E., Rome started feeling the pressure of the new humanistic, anti-slavery, Pharisaic Jewish Party upon the aristocratic Roman lifestyle. During the years between 55 and 62, the Pisos' popularity and family status had once again risen to a very high aristocratic level amongst those Patriotic Romans (and the Jewish hierarchy), who wanted to preserve that hallowed Roman institution of slavery. And along with Seneca, Galba, and a host of others, the Pisos were likened to heros by a majority of influential and powerfull Romans. In about the year 60, Lucius Calpernius Piso wrote 'Ur Marcus' - the proto-type for the book 'Mark' (which was later to be re-written by Arrius Piso). During the following four years, Lucius, Seneca, Persius the Poet, and miscellaneous other conspiritors tried to get Nero to assist them in their plan to give the people a new religion to help preserve the Roman institution of slavery and regain control of the masses through religion (by which they could then easily manipulate them through the use of rhetoric and spuriously synthesized ideologies). But these conspiritors were thoroughly suprised to find that after giving Nero the details of their plan - he opposed it! Nero opposed the plan because his mistress at the time (who later became his wife), Poppea, was pro-Jewish Pharisaic Party. So, Gaius and Lucius Piso and their group planned to assassinate Nero in the year 65 C.E. The attempt failed because Milichus told Nero about the plot in the hopes of recieving a large reward, but Nero was so shook with sudden terror that he mistook milichus' greed for loyalty. Nero started questioning all of the conspiritors that Milichus named, they in turn named even more. Gaius Piso was put to death in his own home (remember, this is Thrasea Paetus, and he was at home with his wife Arria the Younger). He committed suicide as ordered, so that his family would not lose their holdings to the state. This order of suicide came from Nero to Gaius Piso just after Piso had been nominated senatorial successor that year. Seneca (Nero's rhetoric teacher), and Seneca's nephew Lucan, Barea Soranus, Faenius Rufus, and miscellaneous others were executed by Nero. Nero exiled Gaius' son, Arrius, to Syria, where he stationed him as Governer (just as Arrius' Grandfather Cnaeus Piso had been Governer of Syria also). Nero could not kill such a powerful figure as his relative Lucius Calpernius Piso Caesoninus, because he was the name sake of the earlier Roman Hero whose daughter married Julius Caesar. So, Lucius Piso, one of the main conspiritors, escaped with his life. Nero allowed this only to prevent a uprising. Lucius Piso married his dead brother's wife, and adopted Arrius Piso. Nero still went about weeding out conspiritors. Nero executed Gaius Petronius Arbiter in 66, as a conspiritor of Piso's. And in that same year, Arrius Piso deliberatly provoked a Jewish revolt - so he would have an excuse to destroy the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. But Arrius wouldn't be able to do that until the year 70, when he would have the help of Titus' Army ( inner-circle source for the phrase 'you and what army'?). In 67, Nero ordered his probably loyal relative General Corbulo (also an Ahenobarbii like Nero through his father, in fact, Corbulo may have been Nero's Uncle), to commit suicide, as he also was suspected to be a conspiritor of Piso. Arrius Piso finally succeeded in assassinating Nero by having Nero's slave Epaphroditus do it for him (actually, this Epaphroditus was probably Arrius Piso himself. I will explain this further later), in 68 C.E., Galba then became Emperor and named Arrius' cousin, Licinianus Frugi Piso, as his intended successor. On January 1st of the year 69 C.E., Lower Germany declaired Aulus Vitellius legate of that Province. Licinianus Piso was killed along with Galba in Rome during an uprising of soldiers put into action by Otho on January 15th. Licinianus Piso lived four days longer than Galba, and so, was Emperor of Rome for those four days. Otho had taken Poppea, Nero's widow to be his wife and was Emperor after Piso. Then, Otho was forced to kill himself after being defeated by Vitellius, who was then killed by an uprising of soldiers - staged by Arrius Piso in order to secure Vespasian's position as new Emperor. All of this in the year 69 C.E. Why would Arrius Piso want Vespasian to be the new Emperor? Arrius Calpernius Piso was the grandson of Vespasian's own brother! Because T. Flavius Sabinus 2 (Vespasian's brother, where Arrius gets the 'Flavius' in his 'Flavius Josephus' name), was married to the elder Arria, Arrius Piso's Grandmother! So, the Emperor Vespasian was Arrius Piso's Grand-Uncle! The year 70 C.E. saw the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem, where many thousands of Jews were killed by Titus' and Piso's army. And about that year (or more probably year 71), Lucius Piso wrote his second book, the logia 'Ur Matthias'. In the year 71, Titus issued his infamus 'Captive Judea' coin. And in the year 73, as a Roman General, Arrius Piso and his Army destroyed the last three Jewish outposts - Machaerus, Herodian and Mesada. It was in this year that Lucius Piso was killed, supposedly 'accidentally' by Arrius Piso himself. Arrius Piso then starts re-writing his Uncles' books. Arrius Piso has the original copies translated from his Uncles' Latin versions, into Greek, and even though Arrius had altered them slightly, they still contain a strong hint of Latin influence. So, about the year 75, the new versions of 'Mark' and 'Matthew' appear. 79 was the year of the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius at the Bay of Naples, which buried the cities of Pompeii and Herculanem. Pliny the Younger, and his Uncle (the Elder Pliny), saw the eruption and tried to save some of their family members (and books) who were caretakers of Lucius Piso's library at Herculanem. The Elder Pliny lost his life there at the Bay of Naples, but even though they managed to take some books, they left about 800 of them behind (which is an estimate made by the most studious D. Comporetti). Excavations show that there was a quantity Epicurean Philosophic papyrus in both Greek and Latin, but the vast majority of the papyri was written in Latin (which was Lucius Piso's main language). Some of the Greek papyrus was originally from the library of their ancester and Epicurean philosopher - Philodemus of Gadara. In the year 80, a severe fire was supposed to have occured in Rome. And in the year 84, Pliny the Younger officially became a member of the immediate Piso family by his marriage to Arrius Piso's granddaughter 'Calpurnia' (this, according to my earlier notes. However, Pliny was already related, at least semi-distantly). During the year 85, both Arrius and Pliny the Younger together wrote the New Testament book 'Luke'. And in the year 90, Arrius started writing the 'Jewish Antiquities' under his pen name of 'Flavius Josephus'. Arrius Piso's sister Fannia, who was infamus for the number of times in which she had been banished, came back to Rome with her mother - Arria the younger (the widow of 'Thrasea Paetus' a.k.a. Gaius Piso. Fannia was banished again in 93 (under Domitian), and her property was confiscated. Also, in 93, Suetonius came to live with his grandfather - Arrius Piso! When Suetonius' father Rufus died in 93, Arrius brought Suetonius (in 'history' under the names 'Arrius Verus' and 'Titus Antonius'), into his home. Suetonius was the son of Arrius Piso's daughter Claudia Phoebe Pompeia Plotina Calpurnia Pisa (Piso). In the year 95, Alexander, Arrius Piso's first son (who was the father of Pliny's wife Calpurnia), died. Also, in that year, Flavius Clemens, a first cousin of the Emperor Domitian, was executed on a charge of 'atheism'. Many have wondered just what was meant by this. Remember who 'God' was? Caesar! So, to say that there was no God, was to denounce Caesar - who just happened to be 'Domitian' at the time. Then in 96, Piso (Arrius) and Pliny assassinated Domitian, who was the second son and last main surviver of Vespasian. The 'Dynamic Duo' (Arrius & Pliny) were assisted in the assassination by 'Stephanus' (Remember the martyr of Stephan, 1st Cor. 1:16), who was the slave of the Emperor's niece 'Domitilla'. Then, they appointed the Elderly Nerva Emperor, because he would allow the Pisos to do anything that they liked. He ruled for two years and died of natural causes. Also, in 96, Piso started writing his 'Vita' while helping his son, Fabius Justus (Justin Martyr) Calpernius piso and Pliny the Younger write 'Acts of the Apostles' (which they finished about the year 100). In 98, when Nerva died, Trajan became Emperor. Trajan was Arrius Piso's son-in-law. He was married to Claudia Phoebe Pompeia Plotina Pisa. Martial, their relative, wrote about their marriage. Because Piso's daughter was Emperoress, she was allowed to write an actual portion of the New Testament, because remember, the New Testament was 'THE BOOK OF LIFE' itself! She wrote the last part of 'Romans'. That was the year 100, when her brother Proculus was writing 'Romans'. Pliny started writing '1st Corinthians', 'Galatians', and 'Ephesians', finishing those books in the year 103. Also in the year 100, Pliny was starting up the first churches in Pontus and Bithynia. Now the Piso family really kicks into high gear! Between the years 100-105, Pliny writes 'Titus' and starts writing epistles as 'St. Ignatius' (he wrote epistles to the churches that he started up!). Can you picture this? Such was how Christianity was started. And Julius Piso wrote an epistle as 'Clement of Rome', Proculus, as 'St. Polycarp'. In the year 105, Justus writes the 'Gospel of John'. Justus wrote 'Timothy 2' in 107 C.E., while helping his son Julianus, and his nephew Silanus, to write 'Thessalonians' 1 & 2, which they finished writing around 110 C.E. During that time, Justus and Julianus also wrote 'Philemon', and Justus finished up 'James' by himself in 110. Between the years 110 and 115, Proculus Piso and Julius Piso were the family writers. Proculus was writing 'Peter' 1 & 2, and Julius was writing 'John' 1, 2 and 3, and 'Jude'. By the end of 115, all of the books of the New Testament were written, except 'Revelations' and 'Hebrews'. Pliny the Younger, playing the part of 'Paul' in Titus 1:12, quotes 'Epimenides the Cretan' saying; "All Cretans are liars". That is, a Cretan (Greek) saying that all Cretans are liars. Why would Pliny say this in the first place? Because he was teasing at the fact that the Pisos were liars descended from the Greeks, and in fact, directly descended from the brother of Alexander the Great (his brother's name was 'Lagos' which means 'The Rabbit'). Note: There is a noted simulaity found in the Lord's Prayer (written by Arrius Piso), and Philo of Alexandria (Preportedly, the chief Rabbi of Alexandria, Egypt); "If you ask pardon for 'your' sins ('sins?') do you also forgive those who have trespassed against 'you'? For, (in this), remission is granted for remission." The 'remission of sins' sounds familiar. So does 'forgive those whom have trespassed'. Sounds a lot like that old devil himself, Arrius Piso! Also, Philo of Alexandria was supposed to have died around the year 45 C.E., the Jews didn't start calling teachers 'Rabbi' until after the year 70! THE 'SON' COMETH! Matt. 4:3; "If thou art (the) son of God, speak, that these stones may turn to loaves (of bread)." He then smartly answers his own remark in Matt. 4:4, saying; "Man does not live by bread alone." Later, in Matt. 7:9, he says; "Or what man is there of you who, if his son should ask (for) bread, will give him a stone?" This is said again in Luke 4:3. And in 1st Peter 2:4; "To whom coming, (as) a living stone, is indeed rejected by men." For more on this, see 'Revelations Exposed'. 'WHO WAS WHO?' Because of the work done by Guy Edward Farguhar Chilver on the works of Tacitus, we find that Gaius Piso was in fact, a different person other than Lucius Piso - they were brothers. Lucius Piso was the friend who Seneca corresponded with by using the name 'Lucilius' (Seneca's 'Epistoles Morales'). These two were a team, much like Arrius Piso and Pliny the younger would become later. In fact, the writer's themselves joke about that fact. One of Arrius Piso's other names is 'Atrius'. Pliny notifies Arrius of the receipt of his book - like Seneca's letter to Lucilius (Lucius Piso), Arrius Piso's Uncle and adoptive father! Reference for this is Pliny II, Book IX, No. XXXV and Seneca IV, Epistulae Morales I, Book XLVI. This Lucius Piso carried the same name as the father of the Calpurnia that married Julius Caesar - Lucius Calpernius Piso Cesoninus. He had a villa at Herculaneum in the Bay of Naples. His brother was married to Arria the Younger and together the had an only begotten son - Arrius Calpernius Piso! When Gaius Piso was killed by Nero in 65 C.E., Lucius Piso married the widow of his brother and adopted her son (his nephew) Arrius. Lucius Piso had a daughter with his brother's widow, this daughter was the 'Fannia' of history. The writer's of the time try to throw you off by making you think that they are talking about 'Fannia' as being the only child of Thrasea Paetus (Gaius Piso) and Arria the Younger - but it was Arrius who was born first, in 37 C.E.! Lucius Piso died in 73 C.E., but his villa was maintained by relatives until it was buried by ash when Mt. Vesuvius erupted in 79 C.E. Something that a person studying history ought to ask themselves is why would Arria the Younger name her daughter 'Fannia'? Simple. 'Fannia' is another form of 'Arria', with the 'r's as 'n's , and with the addition of the letter 'F' for 'Flavius' (the feminine form is 'Flavia', i.e., 'Flavia Arria'). This same device of switching letters to hide identities was also used in the Annii Verii, which was made up by Arrius Piso writing as Josephus, when he calls himself 'Arrius Verus' (he drops the 'i' from what he really calls himself - Arrius Various, or the 'Various Arrius'). When Arrius Piso's daughter Claudia Phoebe Pompeia Plotina married the Emperor Trajan, the family allowed her to write herself into 'The Book of Life'. She wrote 'Romans' 16:25-27 (which is the very reason why this portion of 'Romans' is not included in some English versions. Some of the family would not have a woman write any portion of the accepted text. But she did, and that portion still exists today). That was around the year 100 C.E., when her brother Proculus wrote the bulk of 'Romans'. Claudia Phoebe would live on past the death of her husband, and help appoint 'Hadrian' as the new Emperor. THE WRITERS AND WHAT THEY DID ARRIUS PISO: Wrote as 'Josephus', and the Greek 'Apion' (because remember, he is descended from Alexander the Great's father, 'Philip of Macedonia'. It is he (Arrius) who Pliny the Younger jokes about in Titus 1:12, when he says; "All Cretans are liars"). Arrius invented and mentions Jesus, John the Baptist, and James the brother of Jesus. CORNELIUS FUSCUS: Wrote as 'Tacitus', mentions Christ and Christians. TRAJAN: Wrote as 'Plutarch', hints at parallelism, and mentioned hints (to codes) and mentions family members only. However, I feel that Trajan also wrote as 'Dio Chrysostum' and was the nephew of the Emperor Otho. Trajan's son, 'Flavius Arrianus' hints at his father being Plutarch in some papers that he wrote while in Egypt. TITUS ANTONINUS: Wrote as 'Suetonius', mentions 'Chrestus'. He was the Emperor Antoninus Pius. He also wrote as Church Father Tatian. He was the son of Claudia Phoebe by Rufus Musonius. FLAVIUS ARRIANUS: Wrote as 'Ptolemy', 'Appian', 'Arrian'. He wrote 'The Shepherd of Hermas', 'Hebrews', the apocryphal 'Barnabas', 'The Didache', 'The Martyrdom of Polycarp', the 'Epistle to Diognetus', and other 'letters' that look like sales documents which he had written while he was in Egypt, and that is where these were found. These other documents by Arrianus are included in a collection of works that are available from the Loeb Classical Library under the title 'Select Papyri'. JUSTUS CALPERNIUS PISO: a.k.a. 'Fabius Justus', he wrote as Church Father 'Justin Martyr'. He was Arrius Piso's son, and it was Justus Piso who wrote the anachronistic 'Gospel of John'. JULIANUS PISO: Was the son of Justus Piso. He wrote as Church Father 'Papius', and was the father of the Emperor Marcus Aurelius. PLINY THE YOUNGER: Had other names too, but we'll get into that later. As 'Pliny' he mentions Christians to establish them 'historically' and cause an interest in them. He was Church Father 'St. Ignatius', and started up the first churches in his province of Pontus ('Pontius'), and Bithynia. JULIUS PISO: Wrote 'Revelations', & the epistles of 'John' and 'Jude'. He was Church Father 'Clement of Rome'. And the family took him to Rome to execute him, because of his insistance that his grandson be named the successor of Hadrian. His name in history is Julius Servianus Severus. A BRIEF TIME-LINE OF PEOPLE & EVENTS 115 C.E. - Julius (Severus) Piso writes 1st, 2nd, and 3rd 'John' and 'Jude'. The Second Jewish revolt starts, and 1 million Jews take over Alexandria Egypt for 1 year. 116 C.E. - Pliny the Younger dies in battle with the Jews (under the name 'Maximus', because he was 'Pontifex Maximus'). 117 C.E. - Trajan dies, his son 'Flavius Arrianus' finishes the books that he was writing as Plutarch. Hadrian becomes the new Emperor after Trajan. 120 C.E. - Tacitus 'Cornelius Fuscus' dies. By the way, Julius Piso's grandson 'Pedanius Fuscus' was also Tacitus' grandson. Julius Piso's daughter Julia married Tacitus' son 'Fuscus' to produce the child that they hoped would succeed the Emperor. 121 C.E. - Hadrian is in Gaul. Marcus Aurelius is born. 124 C.E. - Claudia Phoebe Pompeia Plotina Piso (Pius) dies. 128 C.E. - Hadrian is in North Africa. 129 C.E. - Hadrian in Athens (Greece). 130 C.E. - Hadrian in Alexandria Egypt. 132 C.E. - The third Jewish revolt. Hadrian is back at Rome. War rages for the next three years. 134 C.E. - Hadrian takes personal charge of the campaign in palestine. 135 C.E. - Hadrian recovers Jerusalem. Julius Severus Piso was summoned by Hadrian from Britain to help in the war with the Jews. As a Roman General, Julius, with his troops totaling 35,000 men, were met at first with defeat - to their total suprise. But, in the end, Julius and his troops caused the Diaspora (the dispersion of the Jews, which lasted from 135 C.E., till the year 1919). Bar Cochba was killed at Betar, and Rabbi ben Akiba was tortured to death. 136 C.E. - In exchange for his help in the war, Julius asks Hadrian to name his grandson as his successor. Hadrian says 'no'. 137 C.E. - Julius is angry at the family and writes 'Revelations' bitingly. This was the power that Julius was bequeathed by his father to counter the power that was left to his brother (who's grandson would succeed Antoninus Pius). 138 C.E. - Hadrian orders Julius to commit suicide in Rome, and executes Julius' grandson Pedanius Fuscus. Later, Hadrian dies and Suetonius (Titus Antonius Antoninus Pius 'Piso') becomes Emperor. 139 C.E. - Flavius Arrianus (a.k.a. 'Arrian', 'Appian', and 'Ptolemy'), writes the apocryphal 'General Epistle of Barnabas'. 140 C.E. - Flavius Arrianus writes the New Testament book 'Hebrews'. 145 C.E. - Flavius Arrianus writes the 'Shepherd of Hermas' (a title that 'reaks' of Roman influence). Also in this year, Marcus Aurelius marries Faustina. 161 C.E. - Antoninus Pius (Suetonius) dies, and Marcus Aurelius becomes Emperor. 170 C.E. - Rabbi Judah writes 'Zechariah' and 'Haggai'. 175 C.E. - Rabbi Judah (the Prince). Both a friend and relative of Marcus Aurelius (and descendant of Hillel the Pharisee), writes the Hebrew version of 'Job' (the first version having been written by Arrius Piso, in honor of himself, his father, and his 'House', that being the 'House' of the supreme god - 'Jove' or 'Jupiter'. That's also why when the family captured Jerusalem, they renamed it 'Jupiter Capitolinus' as the 'New Jerusalem'. 180 C.E. - Death of Marcus Aurelius. His son 'Commodus' becomes Emperor. 183 C.E. - Plot to kill Commodus uncovered. 192 C.E. - Commodus assassinated. Pertinax Emperor. 193 C.E. - Pertinax murdered. Didius Julianus is Emperor. THE PROCESSION OF THE BISHOPS When do we hear that St. Peter was Bishop? In 42 C.E.? No! In the first century? No! Once you have become proficient at history, and have the span of 'history' from before B.C.E., to Fourth century down pat, then you will have quite an over-view of what actually transpired. The further away from the 1st century C.E. you get, the more you see 'historians' and Church Fathers trying to pre-date people and events which they have created later on to help establish the legitamacy of Christianity. This can best be seen in the Church's procession of Bishops. They date St. Peter to the year 42 as the first Bishop of Rome (he is a fictional character). Next, Irenaeus, Eusebius, and 'St. Jerome' say that 'Linus' was Bishop of Rome after St. Peter in 67. Tertullian and Rufinus say that 'Clement' was Bishop in 68. Now, this was said for a purpose. Julius Piso (Arrius Piso's son), wrote as St. Clement of Rome in about 110 C.E., the Second century! By saying that 'Clement' was Bishop of Rome in 68 they also pre-dated Justus' writings. Not only was that done for the obvious reason, but for another also. But you would think that to postumusly honor Julius by making his character 'Clement' Bishop of Rome would be another reason, but in fact, Julius died in opposition to the family. So, to make his character 'Bishop of Rome' was to ridicule his memory! This is the snide way that 'the family' dealt with those who didn't go along with them. THE NEW ACHILLES Both the family (the Pisos) and the Jews joked by calling Arrius Piso 'Swift of Foot' knowing that he was also 'Nicon' (Victor). He is called 'Nicolas' from 'Nicon', 'Nicolas' being Greek for 'Balaam'. That's why the Jews made the legend of the 'Lamed Vov', it's just 'Balaam' re-arranged in Hebrew. And he was also the New Achilles, because his Jesus story made him strong, but he too had an Achilles' heel. Arrius and his family had joked and bragged so much about what they were doing, that eventually they would be found out - and they both expected and anticipated it. Why was Jesus the 'Bright Morning Star'? This was another hint. Because Arrius Piso had become the new 'Achilles' and Achilles' spear was the 'Bright Evening star', Arrius' spear (Jesus) was made the 'Bright Morning Star'!!! For more on this, read Homer's Iliad. They took their enemies' names and attributes and used them to jokingly re-enforce their Jesus story. They took the teachings of Hillel the Pharisee (the main teacher of the new humanistic Pharisaic School), and changed them to fit their new Roman religion. Just check the Jewish 'Pirkei Aboth'. Also, they did a real job on their enemies in the Jewish/Humanistic Camp during their war with the Jews. Especially, one Rabbi Yohanan ben Zakai. 'THE RIDICULE OF RABBI YOHANAN BEN ZAKAI' The Piso family ridiculed this famous Jewish leader, who was the youngest student of Hillel the Pharisee, for he was a leader in the war against the Romans who wrote the New Testament! 'Zakai' spelled or translated into Greek is 'Zacchaeus'. We find this spelling of the name in Luke Chapter 19, verses 5 & 8. Also, the same spelling is in the apocryphal book 'The Infancy of Jesus Christ', which is attributed to 'Saint Thomas'. The writers of the New Testament make a further joke of ridiculing the Rabbi by saying that John the Baptist was the son of Zacharias, because translated, 'Yohanan ben Zakai' is John the Rightious. But even more, they incorporate 'Zachi' (Zakai) with 'Arias' (Arrius)! 'ben' is 'son of', so, its 'John, son of Zakai/Arrius'!!! It's not only a joke, but the truth too! I've just explained the joke. The truth was that 'John the Baptist' was the (fictional) 'son' or invention of Arrius Piso. Another cruel thing about this joke is that in the story 'John the Baptist' came to pave the way for Christianity, by making Rabbi Zakai 'John the Baptist' in the story, they make him (who opposed the Pisos) to help pave the way for Christianity. Then, arrius writing as Josephus (in order to re-write history), inserts the name 'Zacharias' (that he made up), into 'history'. For Arrius Piso, such was the power of conquering Rome. 'RHETORICAL DEVICES' The Pisos and their relatives were taught rhetoric from childhood. And they had every book on anything available to them, there was nothing that was ever thought upon and written down that wasn't at their convenience. So, is it any wonder that we find Arrius Piso writing as Josephus? And even writing as Josephus' enemy and critic Apion! For, as Apion, he can say things to ridicule the Jews that the character Josephus wouldn't dare. Later, Flavius Arrianus wrote as Ptolemy and he also wrote as his character's teacher - Epictetus! This was to further confuse people so that they would not see the consistancy of the plot. For, Epictetus is a made-up name with no other historical confirmation, whereas other 'real' people even by their playing their characters by using other names, are confirmable. By the way, the name that Flavius Arrianus chose to be his teacher was a joke and consistant with their rule of hiding names and meanings by switching certain letters. 'Epictetus' is 'Epistolus', because the letters 'S' and 'C' were inter-changable, as were the letters 'T' and 'L', this by their numerical value of '3' in Piso's Greek small number system. His 'teacher' was 'Epistolus' (he who writes epistles), and the name 'Epistolus' like the word 'epistle' in Greek contains the name 'Piso'. 'HOW THE DEVIL GOT HIS LOOKS' There was no 'Devil' before Piso made him as the enemy of Jesus. The Hebrew books did originally mention 'Satan', but the word meant the bad nature or disposition that a person may have at times - not a 'Devil' as the N.T. describes. And of course, the concept of 'Hell' was borrowed from the fictional place that the Greeks called 'Hades'. 1. He's red. They were joking about the family name of 'Ahenobarbus' which by Suetonius' reference denotes the color 'red' because of the ruddy color of the Ahenobarborus men's beards. 'Ahenobarbus', was the name of the family line through which Nero's father came from. 'Red' is also a family nickname, which, was changed around by switching inter-changable letters. Those names include; 'Kokkes', 'Sosses', 'Cocces'. 2. Horns on his head. Since the 'Devil' is Piso himself, and Piso is the Beast ('ippos') in 'Revelations', his son Julius, gives the 'beast' 10 horns (which are meant to allude to another family name coming from Cleopatra Selene's father 'Aulus', meaning 'pipe', 'flute', or 'horn'). This, in 'Revelations' 13:1. 3. Pitch-fork. In 'Acts of the Apostles' Arrius Piso makes his 'pitches' with his 'forked'-tongue for his new religion, saying; "Come one, come all, see the great creation - 'Jesus'." 4. He's got a pointed tail (tale). Of course the Devil (Piso) has a pointed tale - the Jesus story! It's pointed because he makes jokes, puns, and ridicules his enemies in it! 5. Cloven feet. 'Clovis', which is a form of the family name 'Clodius' ('Claudius'). We also get the association betweenSt. Patty 'Calpernius', the 'Sham-rock' ('Shammi', 'Petros', 'rock'), and the 'Four-leafed' clover. This comes later, when St. Augustine (and his brother?) St. Patrick go to Ireland to drive out the Druids (snakes), and establish Christianity there. 6. Forked-tongue. Of course, the Devil (Piso) speaks with a forked-tongue (and he is 'double-minded' as the N.T. says), because he lies. The American Indians never said; "White man speak with forked-tongue," except in movies. Because an 'inner-circle' member made that up as a joke. 'White man' is 'Albinus', a Piso family name. Also, they made the association with the snake having a forked-tongue, alluding back to the snake lieing to Eve. The reference to 'Forked-tongue' can be found in the New Testament itself, in Acts 2:3. 'LUCIFER AND THE DEVIL' Later in Christology, the name 'Lucifer' became synonomus with the Christian 'Satan' or 'The Devil' (Piso's Devil - himself!), because like 'Lucius' (of light), 'Lucifer' means 'Shining one'. This 'Shining one' is of 'pomp and glory' i.e. 'Vain'. Check the name 'Lucifer' in Isaiah 14:12 (use an Analytical Concordance). In the war with the Jews, even those who were newly 'converted' from paganism were used to fight the Jews. That's why we find in those certain New Testament books 'anti-semetic' passages and can better find when those books were written. Should it strike anyone as funny that this new anti-semetic religion called Christianity and it books should come at a time when Rome was at war with the Jews? In giving the family lineage, Plutarch (Trajan) affirms Arrius' descent from the person whom the 'Hercules' character had been modeled after (there is a theory that the Greek/Roman gods were modeled after real people), thereby exposing Arrius' license by relation to use the attributes of Hercules (including titles) in the synthesis of the Jesus character. Plutarch was Arrius Piso's son-in-law, the Roman Emperor Trajan! In 'Plutarch's' Alexander (that is, 'Alexander the Great'), Trajan says that Alexander the Great was descended from 'Hercules'. And of course, we find that Arrius Piso was descended from Alexander the Great's brother 'Lagos'. Who was the 'real-life' person who was Arrius Piso's ancestor and the person from whom the 'Hercules' character was modeled after? Perhaps this person was 'Heraclitus of Ephesus' circa 500 B.C.E. He was a Greek philosopher who studied Epistemology. The very name 'Hercules' means 'Glorius gift of Hera' ('Glorius gift of Hera-clitus'?). His compounded name is said to prove that he (Hercules) was a real man (person). MORE ABOUT ARRIUS PISO AND JESUS Why does the traditional Jesus have a beard? Nowhere in the New Testament does it say that Jesus had a beard! The word 'beard' is not to be found in it! So, where did his beard come from? It will be pointed out that 'holy men' in those days did not cut their hair. The source for that information? 'Josephus'. According to the New Testament, 'Jesus' did not have a beard. However, the person who 'played' Jesus did! Arrius Piso, as Josephus, had a beard. That's why the traditional Jesus has a beard. Because for whatever was lacking in their fictional character, all they had to do was go to the real-life personage behind the character to draw those extra characteristics needed to make their character seem larger than life. "WILL THE 'REAL' CHRISTIAN GOD PLEASE STAND UP!" So, who is this mysterious Christian God? "CAESAR"! He (Jesus/Josephus/Arrius Piso) was 'the likeness of God' (2nd Cor. 4), because he was related to the deified Caesars! Great Caesar's holy ghost! Can it be that even today, we live in a nation under Caesar? The deified Caesars include: 'Julius Caesar', 'Augustus Caesar', 'Claudius Caesar', 'Vespasian', and 'Titus'. It would seem most possible that Cneius Calpernius Piso was the son of Julius Caesar and Calpurnia Piso, thereby drawing a direct line to Arrius Piso. JULIUS CAESAR M. CALPURNIA PISO (LUCIA PISA) CAESONINAE | MARCUS GNAEUS (CNEIUS) CALPERNIUS PISO M. PLANCINA MUNATIA | GAIUS CALPERNIUS PISO CAESONINAE M. MARIAMNE ('MARY', ARRIA THE YOUNGER) | ARRIUS (JOSEPHUS) CALPERNIUS PISO M. BOIONIA SERVILA PRISCILLA Julius Caesar was also related to Marc Anthony. The phrase 'son of the living god' is also a hint (check Suetonius' description of Caligula). In Matt. 16:16, Simon Peter says; "Thou art the Christ, the son of the living god." A key word here is 'son'. The word they use has a double meaning, it can mean 'son' like a person's son, or it can mean 'descendant'. The Caesars were the 'new' Roman gods replacing the old ones. So, when 'Jesus' (Arrius Piso) says that he's the 'son' of God, he's really saying that he is a descendant of Caesar!!!!! In Mark 14:58, Arrius Piso jokes about his finally destroying the Jewish Temple. Arrius Piso as Jesus says; "I will destroy this Temple, the one made with hands, and in three (trion) days, another not made with hands I will build." He says in the 'trion' days, meaning in the days of the 'trinity'. Not built with hands, but with mind. That is, 'rhetorical', using 'words' to be the 'new' temple, one that would stand even when the very buildings would crumble. That is why they say that the building is not the church, but it is the congregation which is the church and body of Christ (Piso), and cannot be destroyed as a building. Julius Piso, Arrius Piso's son, counters the rhetoric by placing hints & clues in 'Revelations'. Julius makes his father into a dragon in Rev. 12:3. Why a dragon? Because the same word for 'dragon' also means 'a baby boy', and that's the baby Jesus!! THE RIDICULE OF THE RABBIS OF THE DAY BY THE ROMANS From careful study and comparison, I would conclude that the 'First Infancy' was written at the time of Acts & Luke, which was around the year 90 C.E. In the Apocryphal 'Infancy', we find that they have inserted Rabbi ben Dosa (a student of Zakai), as 'the son of Hanani a Jew'. The full name of this Rabbi was 'Hanina' ben Dosa (Ref. Chap. XIX, 18 and 20). They insert Rabbi Gamaliel, the Jewish leader who was the President of the Pharisaic Party and descendant of Hillel. They changed his name around and put him in Acts 22:3, 5:38-39. They have Rabbi Akiba in Acts 11:28, 21.10. And they have the Jewish commander Eliezer ben Yair who died fighting the Pisos in 73 C.E., as 'Jairus' (Roman form of Yair), in Mark 5:22. They interchanged letters to hide the true identity of the Rabbis that they were ridiculing. For Akiva, spelled either 'Akiva' or 'Akiba', they followed their principle of inter-changing the letters 's', 'c', and 'k'. So that they have 'Aciba', then they change it even further following another 'Roman' principle of switching c's and g's, as in the name 'Caius' and 'Gaius' (like 'Caius' or 'Gaius' Caligula). In Acts 19:14, they make Akiva just plain 'Kiva' spelling it 'Ceva' with a 's' in front of it, rendering the name 'Sceva' which is short for the Greek word 'Scevazon' meaning 'I CREATE'. This portion of Acts of the Apostles was written by Justus Piso. THE AUTHORS OF THE NEW TESTAMENT BOOKS NAMES OF THE BOOKS DATES ACTUAL AUTHORS The original Mark 60 C.E.

The Abelard Reuchlin Foundation shall be the sole judge as to whether you have satisfied the required burden of proof. A.R.F., P.O. BOX 5652, KENT, WA 98064 'THE PISO FAMILY IN THE NEW TESTAMENT' The Pisos felt that they had a 'right' to make a new religion based on Judaism, because they were descendants of the Herodian/Hasmonean hierarcy that appointed the Jewish High Priests. Arrius Piso was called 'Mountanus' in History. His name was Arrius, which is 'Mars'. In Acts 17:22 they insert Arrius' name by mentioning 'Mars' Hill'. That is 'Arrius Pagos', by making Arrius synonomus with 'hill' they make him a small mountain. If you stood at the bottom of Mars' hill, you could call it a mountain. But then others may argue that you were "making a mountain out of a mole-hill." Although, that's exactly what the writers of the New Testament did. The above phrase was an inner-circle reference, because the Hebrew word for 'mole' also meant 'chamelion', which Arrius Piso certainly was, as he blended himself into the background of 'history'. As I said before, the 'history' books of the time, were not so much 'history' books, as they were family ledgers. So was the New Testament! They gave honor to their ancestors and themselves by writing them into the 'Book of Life' i.e., the New Testament. Also, by giving honorable mention to their relatives, they were giving (inserting) another way in which to claim authorship. It was one of the many ways that they used to 'copyright' their work. Of course, since the Herods were Arrius Piso's relatives, he wrote them into his story. Herod the Great (King Herod), was his (Arrius Piso's) great-great grandfather. Archelaus was his great-uncle, as were Antipas, Philip, and Herod the Tetrarch. Herodias (wife of Philip), was his great-aunt. Agrippa 1 was his grand-uncle, as was Tiberius Julius Alexander (brother of Tigranes). Aristobulus was his great-grandfather. Agrippa 2, Berenice 2, and Drusilla were his mother's first cousins.

By using the word 'arsenou', they honor (phonetically) Arsinoe (Cleopatra's sister) in 1st Cor. 6:9, and 1st Timothy 1:10. Ptolemy Auletes. The 11th Ptolemy and father of Cleopatra, is honored in Matthew 4:23, and Rev. 18:22, by using his name 'auletes'. Aulus Vitellius. By his 'Aulus' name in Mark 6:15, Matt. 5:39, 1st Timothy 5:25, 1st Cor. 14:7. Augustus Caesar. In Luke 2:1 Arrius Piso. Specifically by his name 'Arrius' in Acts 17:19 and 17:22; and as 'Appius' in Acts 28:15, as the Latin word for 'forum'. In Acts, 'Mars hill' is 'Arrius Pagos' in Greek. Otho. They honor Otho by using the word 'othonion' for 'cloth' or 'bandage' in Luke 24:12, and John 19:40, 20:5-7. Cleopatra Selene. Anytime they use the word 'moon' in Greek, they honor Cleopatra Selene (Cleopatra's daughter). We find her name used in Mark 13:24, Matt. 24:29, Luke 21:25, and Acts 2:20, 1st Cor. 15:41, Rev. 6:12, 8:12, 12:1, 21:23. Ptolemy Dionysius. By his 'Dionysius' name in acts 17:34. Ptolemy Lysanias. By 'Lysanias' in Luke 3:1. Claudius Caesar. Acts 11:28, 18:2. Persius the Poet. 'Persis' (dropped the 'u'), in Romans 16:12. Boionia Priscilla (Arrius Piso's wife). She is placed in the N.T. as the wife of Aquila ('the eagle', Romans 16:3), because she was married to Arrius Piso, who was now like the eagle at the top of the Roman standard! Also, 2nd Tim. 4:19 ('Prisca'), etc.Livy the writer. The family was related to Livy. Mentioned as 'Levi' in Luke 3:24,29, and Luke 5:27,29. Marc Antony (Marcus Antonius). Honored in the N.T. by the Title of the 'Gospel' book 'Mark'. Marc Antony was also a Caesar! His mother, was the sister of the Grandfather (Lucius Julius Caesar), of Julius Caesar (which makes him a 2nd Uncle of Julius Caesar!). Cornelius Tacitus. As 'Cornelius' in Acts 10:1,3,7,17,21,22,24,25,30,31. Dio Chrysostom (i.e., Trajan). By using the word 'Chrysos' for short, they honor Otho's nephew. 'Chrysos' means 'gold', as does 'Flavius'. It is used in Matt. 2:11, and all through the N.T. Julius Caesar (whom Julius Piso was named after). As 'Julius' in Acts 27:1,3. Julia Livilla (Caligula's sister). In Romans 16:7 as 'Julia'. Justus Piso. As 'Justus' in Acts 1:23, 18:7, and Colos. 4:11. Publius Hadrian. As 'Publius' in Acts 28:7,8. Antiochus Soter (ancestor of Arrius Piso, 'Soter' means 'Saviour', and is why Arrius Piso can also be a 'Saviour'). Whenever they mention 'Antioch', they allude to their ancestors of the Antiochan Dynasty, because Antioch was founded by Seleucus Nicator, who, named it after his father - Antiochus! Jason (their ancestor). In Acts 17:5,6,7,9, and Romans 16:21. Rufus Corelius (1st husband of Claudia Phoebe Pompeia Plotina). As 'Rufus' in Mark 15:21 and Romans 16:13. Annaeus Gallio (Seneca's brother). As himself in Acts 18:12,14,17. Annaeus Seneca. As 'Ananias' (phonetic equiv. of 'Annaeus' with 2nd 'n' switched with 2nd 'a'). In Acts 5:1,3,5. Olympias (wife of Philip of Macedonia). As 'Olympias' in Romans 16:15. Felix (the husband of Drusilla, daughter of Agrippa 1). In Acts 24:24. Ovid. As 'Obed' in Matt. 1:5 and as 'Jobed' in Luke 3:32 (Here, Arrius jokes about writing 'Job' as Josephus. Gaius Calpernius Piso. As 'Gaius' in Acts 19:29,20:4, and in 1st Cor. 1:14, and Romans 16:23, and the 3rd epistle of John, verse 1. Pliny (Secundus) the Younger. In Acts 20:4. Lucius Calpernius Piso. As 'Lucius' in Acts 13:1, and Romans 16:21. Tiberius Caesar. Luke 3:1. Silius Titianus Italicus (Otho's brother, and Trajan's father). As 'Italicus' in Acts 10:1. Matthias (the High Priest). Remember, Arrius Piso writing as Josephus is 'Josephus ben Matthias', and he is descended from the High Priests. And Arrius was! 'Matthias' is in Acts 1:23,26. Lucan the Poet. 'Luke' is short for 'Lucan', Acts 16:10,20:5. John Hyrcanus. As Josephus, Arrius Piso writes so much about John Hyrcanus, that the name 'John' becomes synonomus with 'Hyrcanus'. John Hyrcanus was Arrius piso's Great,Great,Great,Great,Great,Great-Grandfather! They honor him with the title of the Fourth Gospel. Also, 'Hyrcanus' is Greek for 'John' in Hebrew. Nero. They allude to their relative (both through the Julian Caesars and the Domitii Ahenobarbii), when they speak of parricide (because supposedly, Nero killed his mother), in 1st Timothy 1:9. And, also in 2nd Tim. 4:22 by name. Antigonas One-Eye. Alluded to in Matt. 18:9, and Mark 9:47. Actually, they allude loosely to all of their relatives that had 'one eye' (it might have even been a title, like 'the lion' or 'the Great'), including Petronianus One-Eye, Petronius Arbiter's brother. Antigonas One-Eye was the brother of Alexander the Great. T. Flavius Clemens. 'Clemens' is spelled out in Greek, by running words together in John 15:2,4,5,6. And Phil. 4:3. Philip of Macedonia (who was a Greek), had a son named 'Lagos', whose son was the 1st Ptolemy. The great-great grandson of the 1st Ptolemy married Cleopatra 1, who was an Antiochian. Their great-great granddaughter was Cleopatra 7 (the Cleopatra that we associate with Julius Caesar), her sister, Arsinoe, had a son who married Alexanra Regent (who was a Hasmonean i.e., Maccabee). Their daughter, was Mariamne 1 (who married King Herod). King Herod, was an Imudean. The Imudeans came from a branch of the Maccabees that sprang from Eleazor Auran (through his son Jason). And from King Herod, of course, sprang the Herodians. King Herod's grand-daughter Mariamne (Arria the Elder), married Vespasian's br*other, T. Flavius Sabinus 2 (a Flavian). Her daughter was Mariamne (Arria the Younger), who married Gaius Piso and when he died, Lucius Piso, both Caesars. The son of Gaius Piso and Mariamne (Arria the Younger), was Arrius Piso a.k.a. 'Flavius' Josephus (as you can see, he was already a Flavian). 'WHERE THE PISOS MAKE INSIDE JOKES IN THE NEW TESTAMENT' Martial (Marcellus), who was a relative of the Pisos, jokingly points to the kind of double-talk that was used in the writing of the New Testament; "The Golden hair that Galla wears, Is hers: who would have thought it? She swears 'tis hers, and true she speaks, For, I know where she bought it." The writers of the New Testament were busy writing in their own kind of wit; " ... I found an alter with this inscription, 'TO THE UNKNOWN GOD WHOM YE IGNORANTLY WORSHIP', it is him that I declare unto you." (Acts 17:23) "And indeed in the times of ignorance God ( Caesar ) winked." (Acts 17:30) Only when one knows that the New Testament is a mass of mixed things written by the various Piso family members is one able to make out the many 'inside' jokes placed in the N.T. by that very same family. "If the first fruit is holy, the lump is also holy." (Romans 11:16) Since these writers of the New Testament were descendants of the deliverers of the 'first fruit' (Judaism), they felt that they had the right to make a new religion if they felt like it. In this joke, Proculus Piso refers to the New Testament as 'the lump' ('Phurama', 'lump', 'a mass of mixed things'). "And upon this rock (Peter) I shall build my church." (Matt. 16:18) 'Rock' is 'Petros' (Peter). In the next verse 'Jesus' (Arrius Piso) gives the keys to heaven to Saint Peter. Pliny the Younger helped Arrius piso write 'Luke' and 'Acts'. However, because these people were not holymen or religious, but rather, belligerent braggarts, they ridicule the Jewish Rabbis of the day in these books and make 'inside' jokes. Many of what are called 'inconsistancies', are actually inside jokes. Matthew 1:17 states that there are 42 generations, but lists only 41! See 'Piso Numbers' 41 and 42. The 'Tree of Life' in the Hebrew/Aramaic 'Genesis', becomes the 'Book of Life' in the anti-semetic N.T. books of 'Revelations' 22:19 and 'Philippians' 4:3. Jesus 'shall save'. "And thou shall call his name 'Jesus', because he 'shall save' people from their sins." The New Testament was originally written in Greek (except for the Logia), this pun is aimed at the Jews - because 'Jesus' in Hebrew is 'Joshua' ('Yoshia' here), which means 'shall save'. So, Matthew 1:21 reads; "And thou shall call his name 'shall save', because he 'shall save' people from their sins." Jesus being the son of Joseph. Because he was the fictional son of Arrius Piso as Josephus! Various spellings of 'Joseph' and 'Josephus' make them identical. Arrius Piso and his son Justus wrote chapters 1 through 15 of 'Acts', and Justus ('Justin Martyr'), wrote chapters 16 and 17, and Pliny the Younger went on to help Justus write chapters 18 through 28 of 'Acts of the Apostles'. In Luke 3:26, 'Joseph' is spelled 'Josech'. Attempts have been made to explain this away as a copist's error. These people who were writing the gospels pretended to be backward Galalean disciples, playing their part to the hilt. In their roles as backward disciples they couldn't be too fluent in Greek, they 'had' to misspell things at times. And in so doing, they made use of those mis-spellings. This one combined the first half of the name 'Josephus' with the acrostic initial for 'Christ'. Meaning, of course, 'Josephus is Christ'. "Cretans are always liars!" Titus 1:12. Pliny, playing Paul, quotes Epimenides the Cretan (He is a Cretan, calling Cretans liars. i.e., himself). 'Cretan' is another way of saying 'a Greek', and as we know, 'the family' was descended from Greeks (Philip of Macedonia & the Ptolemies). Matt. 1:9-11. "Gold, frankincense, and myrrh." Magi came from the East, bringing gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh at the birth of Socrates in 469 B.C.E. Arrius Piso wanted it known that he was not less than Socrates. Guess who also makes note of this? 'Lucian' a.k.a. Marcus Aurelius, Piso's great-grandson! "Salute Herodion, my kinsman." Romans 16:11. That's right, a Roman 'salute' to the Herodian hierachy - their kinsmen! King Herod was Arrius Piso's Great-Great Grandfather! "But of you, even the hairs of your head are all numbered." Matt. 10:30. Arrius Piso jokes about the use of his number system. Also note that jokingly we find the phrase 'Daily Bread' in Josephus' 'Antiquities of the Jews' (Ant. XVIII, 150 Loeb). It was Arrius Piso/Josephus that also wrote the Lord's Prayer that we find in Matthew 6:11! Jesus' many titles. Plutarch ( Abelard says Plutarch was Arrius Piso, I think he was the Roman Emperor Trajan ), affirms Arrius Piso's 'right' to use Hercules' titles by saying that Alexander the Great was a descendant of Hercules ( Plutarch, 'Alexander'). Those titles are; 'The Prince of Peace', 'The Good Shephard', 'Saviour', and 'The Only Begotten Son'. 'Jesus' (Arrius Piso), was 'the light of the world', because he was 'of light' - Lucius ('of light' in Greek). Arrius Piso as Jesus claimed to be the 'son of David', as many others in his day had also claimed - including Hillel the Pharisee! But by 'son', he meant 'descendant'. This is the correct transation from the Greek. He is also called 'the son of God', 'the son of the living God', and 'the likeness of God'. The only real 'living God' was 'Caesar'. Arrius Piso was a descendant of the deified Caesars! Speaking in 'tongues'. Acts 2:4. "... began to speak with other tongues." The word used when saying that they spoke in 'tongues' was 'glossa', which is Greek for 'language'. It's another hint to suppliment "it was written in Greek, Latin, and Hebrew." (Luke 23:38). And so it was! They used rhetoric in combination with the components of each of those languages! Curious Jesus. They inter-changed the words that they use when they say 'Lord'. Sometimes using 'despotes' (despot), but mostly using 'curie'/'curios' meaning not only 'Lord', but also 'curious', 'strange', or 'mysterious'. This is a big hint at what they were doing, especially when mentioned in conjunction with statements such as "the mystery of the Gospels." They take they Latin word 'curia' and then turn it into its masculine form in Greek to get 'curios'. Julius Piso hints at what they were doing in 'Revelations' 18:8, "... for strongly curious is the God that judgeth her." And Julius even ends 'Revelations' snidely, saying in Rev. 22:20; "Yes, come, curious (Lord) Jesus!" Rev. 22:21; "Saints!, praise the Revelations of John!" And that, of course, made them want to exclude 'Revelations' from the canon. The rupture of the Rapture. If you think about it, you'll soon realize that the 'second coming' of Christ, or 'The Rapture' as they call it, is a joke - like many other jokes written into the New Testament. Why is it a joke? Because ( in the story ), Jesus came into the world once, when he was born to Mary. Then, he died, that's the first coming. Then, he came back again after three days ( and that's another joke ), that is the 'second' coming! The 'second coming', that the Christian fundamentalists call 'The Rapture', will never come. Because it had already happened in their own great Jesus story written by Arrius Piso! Note: This joke is well known within the inner circle, and is the source for the saying; "The third time is a charm." "If any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant." 1st Cor. 14:38. A man couldn't help but be ignorant, they were burning all of the books, and writing their own! No one could write without Caesar's permission, and he only permitted his family to write. It was a closed environment! Hitler certainly had good teachers. The third day. "... that deceiver, whilst living, said; after three days, I will arise." (Matt. 27:63). "... and after three days, ( he will ) rise again." (Mark 8:31). It just so happened, that the cruci-fiction in the Jesus story took place on Friday, while the sun was still out, and Jesus (if he were a real person), by law, had to be taken down from the cross by dusk (not only by ordinary Roman law, but also because dusk Friday was the beginning of the Sabbeth, which lasted till dusk Saturday). Let's say for the sake of arguement, that he was crucified at dawn (at 'cock-crow' as it is called), then let's count the days. Friday, 6:00 A.M. to Saturday 6:00 A.M. is one day. The last mention we have of Jesus is before the end of the Sabbeth, which is Saturday at dusk. The next is that he has risen before dawn Sunday! That's not even Two days! But in the story, three separate days are implied deliberately - to throw us off the trail! Just another one of those darned inconsistancies, that, by the way, is the source for the expression; "What a difference a day makes." The 'Abba' issue. Arrius Piso, as Jesus, calls 'God' his 'father' literally, with the use of the word 'abba'. But this same word also means 'ancestor' or 'fore-father', remember, the diefied 'God' Julius Caesar was an 'ancestor' of Arrius Piso! So, read the 'Lord's Prayer' this way; "My ancester who art in heaven, hidden (sacred, hallowed) be thy name." Also, 'abba' is used once by Arrius Piso writing as Josephus as a joke at the very end of chapter 4, verse 7, of 'Antiquities of the Jews'. But he goes on to hint about it in the rest of his writings. "For, we do not follow cunningly devised fables." (2nd Peter 1:16). No, they didn't follow cunningly devised fables, they were busy writing them! Arrius Piso starts off writing 'Acts' by adressing it to Pliny the Younger, who, he calls 'Theophilus' (loved of God), because he is 'loved of God'. That is, 'loved' or 'favored' by Arrius Piso and the Caesars! To find out who wrote what, you have to know the meanings of the names. They wrote the New testament in a narrative form and used different names to play the characters, as in a play. Knowing this, the New testament can be broken down into acts and scenes to see who is playing who. In the year 6 C.E., Judea became a Roman Province, which prompted Judas of Galilee to lead a rebellion against Rome. He was called 'messiah' by the Jews. His rebellion was crushed. Then, in 44 C.E., Theudas the Pharisee (who the Jews also called 'messiah'), lead a revolt to gain back Judea. He was defeated. Finally, in 60 C.E., Benjamin 'the Egyptian' lead a revolt and was called 'messiah'. These Pharisees were becoming a real threat to Rome. This is when Lucius Piso started to work on his story of a 'messiah'. Arrius Piso, later inserts these 'messiahs' of the Jews in his writings to further ridicule the Jews. For, it was his secret way of saying; "See, it is because of these 'messiahs' of yours, that we made ours. 'PISO NUMBERS' There were three main alpha/numeric systems in use at the time when the New Testament was being written - Hebrew, Latin (Roman Numerals), and Greek. Until about the year 80 C.E., the Greek system consisted of only an old initial system. Arrius Piso (Josephus) developed a 'new' Greek system and incorporated it into the New Testament. Josephus hints at the use of triangular numbers such as 666 in his 'Antiquities of the Jews', Book 12, Chapt. 2, Verse 9. He is also the 'mathematician' circa 100 C.E. called 'Nicomachus'. This 'Nicomachus of Garasa' was Josephus/Arrius Piso, because 'Nico' is 'Victor' or 'Winner', and 'Machus' means 'of the battle' ( of Garasa ). Reading Josephus, one finds that Josephus was a Roman General at the battle of Garasa in 66 C.E. So, Josephus was 'Nicomachus' ( the victor of the battle ) of Garasa. Also, in 'history', Josephus is the first person to mention Garasa. These numbers and their meanings are preserved for us in many of the books of the day, all one must do is look. Some are main numbers, and some are combined numbers. It is assumed that the Pisos didn't use the numbers 1 or 2 as designators, because in Pythagorean mathematics (on which the number system is based), the numbers 1 and 2 are not considered numbers. 3 - Stood for 'T', and 'T' stood for the cross ( Ref. 'The General Epistle of Barnabas', the Apocryphal N.T.) See 30. 4 - Four is a small 40, and therefore 12 ( alluding to 'The Twelve'). 5 - A small 50 ( check 50 ). 6 - Six is a small 60, standing for 'Kalpournios Piso' ( Greek spelling, small numbers ). 666 is a triangular number with a root of 36, which is a square with the root 6! 7 - Small 70, alluding to the Greek Septuagint ( which Arrius Piso amended so as to accommodate his Jesus story ). 8 - Small 80, 'P' ( in Greek ) for 'Piso'. 9 - In the sequence system ( Greek ), 'I' ( which is 'J' in 'Jesus' ), was the 9th letter of the Greek alphabet. 'I' is also the initial for 'Josephus'. 10 - Was 'I' ('J') for 'Jesus' in initial system, or 'K' for 'Kalpournios' in sequence system. 12 - The Twelve Apostles, the twelve labors of Hercules, and Roman Law, which was written on twelve bronze tablets.13 - Jesus and the Twelve. Also, 10 + 3 ( Jesus/Josephus & the cross!). 14 - Was equal to 60 ('Kalpournios Piso'), in Greek numbers. 16 - The 16th letter of the Greek alphabet, 'P' for 'Piso'. 18 - In the Apocryphal book 'Barnabas' 18:12, '18' is 10 & 8 ('Jesus/Piso'!). 18 is also the Pythagorean 666 (6+6+6=18). 19 - Was the total of the name 'Piso' in small numbers. 20 - 'K' for 'Kalpournios' in initial system. 'Nicon' sm. num. 22 - 'Christ' ('Xpistos') in Greek small numbers, while at the same time, standing for the Greek letter 'X' in initial system. 24 - 'Jesus' in Greek small numbers ( Iota, Eta, Sigma, Omicron, Upsilon, sigma ). 26 - 'K' the 10th letter, plus 'P' the 16th letter, for 'Kalpournios Piso' equals 26. 27 - 'Pliny' ('Plinios'), in Greek small numbers, honoring 'Pliny the Younger'. 29 - 'Piso' as 'Peison'. Normally, they spelled it 'Piso' ( Latin form ), the Greek form is 'Peison'. 29 in Greek sm. num. 30 - 'Jesus/Flavius' by sequence system, and the total of the name 'Flavius' in Greek small numbers. 33 - 'Flavius' (30), and 'the cross' (3). Jesus died at age 33, because Arrius Piso's ancestor 'Alexander the Great' died at 33. 36 - The root of 666, and also the total of the original spelling of 'Josephus' as 'Josepos' (Ref. 'Josephus', Jewish War, Book V, Loeb Edition), in Greek small numbers. 38 - 'Flavius/P' (30+8). That is, 'Flavius' in Greek small numbers, and small number 8 as 'P' for 'Piso'. Or, according to pythagorean mathematic principles, 3 = 'T' + 8 = 'P', which is 'the cross, and Piso'! 40 - '40', like 4, stands for '12' ('The Twelve'). 40 is also 'M'. Two m's equal 80, which was 'P' for 'Piso'. That's why Jesus' mother was named 'Mariam' in the story; Arrius (Josepos) Piso's mother's name was Arria (Greek spelling, one 'r', 'Aria'), which, with two m's makes a 'P' for 'Piso'. Her married name was 'Arria Piso'. In the N.T., sometimes 'Mariam' is spelled 'Marias'. That's 'M' + Arrius! Or Arrius & the 12! (Ref. 'The Interlinear Greek-English New Testament' - Berry). 41 - 'Kalpournios' in Greek small numbers.42 - 42 is 30 (Flavius) + 12 (The Twelve). It is used in Matt. 1:17 as 14 + 14 + 14 = 42. And also in Rev. 13:5 as '42 months' ( = 3 years ). 44 - Instead of using the name 'Flavius' which he would inherit from his father, Justus uses the variant 'Fabius' which he jokingly derives from 'fava' ('beans'). The names 'Fabius' and 'Justus' together totaled 44. Justus played the 'holy' Church Father - Justin Martyr! And he wrote the anachronistic Gospel of John (The Fourth Gospel)! Also, 'fava' (horse bean) ippos/Piso! 46 - 'Jesus Christ' in Greek small numbers. 47 - In honor of Pythagoras' 47th theorem, the Pisos used the number 47 to denote the new Pythagoras - Arrius Piso! 50 - In the Greek system 'Nu', in Hebrew 'Nun'. This alludes to the source for the name 'Jesus' - from the Hebrew 'Joshua' ('Jesus' in Greek) the son of Nun. In Aramaic (another semetic language), 'Nun' means 'fish'. Isn't the son of a fish also a fish? Arrius Piso, writing as Josephus, jokes about 'Dagon', the Phoenician & Philistine god who was half man & half fish. Note that even today, the 'fish' is still a symbol for 'Jesus'. 60 - The numerical equivalent of 'Calpernius Piso' in the Greek spelling; 'Kalpournios Piso', in small numbers. 66 - The 'Xi' and 'Bau' of the 'Chi', 'Xi', 'Bau' from 666. 'Flavius Josepos' (Flaouios Iosepos), which is 30 + 36 (sm. num). 67 - The name 'Piso' in the Greek sequence system. 'Piso' is the family name as it is correctly spelled in Latin. However, the family used Greek letters to spell it when giving it numerical value. The spelling of the name in Greek is 'Peison'. 70 - Alluding the the Greek Septuagint, which is also Piso's signature of 41 & 29 ('Kalpournios Peison'). 80 - The 'P' in Piso in the Greek initial system. 87 - The 'pos' in 'Josepos', and the phonetic 'pas' of 'Puthagopas' ( Pythagoras ). They saw the Greek 'R' as the Latin 'P' (Ref. 'Suetonius', 'The Twelve Caesars', 'Augustus' #88). 90 - As 30 and 60. 96 - This stood for Arrius Piso's son 'Alex' in Greek initial system. But Piso's first son (Alex), whom he named after his ancestor 'Alexander the Great', died (about the year 95 C.E.). Pliny the Younger took the number when he married Arrius Piso's granddaughter (who was Alex's daughter), and in effect, became a new son with the name 'Alexander', as the masculine form of 'Calpurnia Alexandra' whom Pliny married. Reference for this is in 'Lucian', written by Marcus Aurelius. 99 - Honor to Pliny the Younger as the total of his full name; 'Gaios Kaikilios Sekoundos Plinious', in Greek small numbers. In the New Testament, the word 'Amen' was used to honor Pliny the Younger, because it too totaled 99. What Christian knows that they honor Pliny the Younger every time they use the word 'Amen'? None. But we do. 100- 'K.P.' by Greek initial system. Also 'C' for 'Calpernius' in Latin initial system. 136- This is 100 + 36. 144- This is 44 plus 100 (Fabius Justus Kalpournios Piso). An example of its use is in 'Revelations'. In Rev. 7:4, '144,000' is spelled out with full words for each number, 100 (ekaton), 44 (tesserakonta, tessares), 'Thousand' or 'One Thousand' (Chiliades, or Chiliados). 180- 'C' from Latin, 'P' from Greek, the initials for 'Calpernius Piso'. 200- Using the Greek 'R' (P) as a designation for the Latin 'P' for 'Piso' totaled 100 in Greek initial system and combined with 'C' for 'Calpernius' from the Latin system (100), equaled 200. 300- Stood for 'T', which represented the cross (Ref. 'The General Epistle of Barnabas'). 316- Like 38, 'T' & 'P' (The cross, and Piso). 318- The cross and Pythagorean 666 (300 + 6 + 6 + 6 = 318). Also, 300 as the cross, with 10 as 'J' for 'Jesus/Josephus', and 8 as 'P' for 'Piso'. 600- The 'X' or 'Chi' (Kai) of 'Chi', 'Xi', 'Bau' (600, 60, 6). 600 is the numerical value of the initial 'X' which is 'Ch' in English and stands for 'Christ'. It is the first letter of the name 'Christ' in Greek, and therefore is an acrostic initial for 'Christ'. 616- When the Church was deciding whether or not to continue to include 'Revelations' into the Christian canon (because of 666, its checking number, and other allusions), they opted to try to change 666 to 616 in the manuscripts so as to throw off the checking system and yet still honor Christ/Piso (600 = 'Christ', 16 = 'Piso'). See 'Council of Nicaea in Bithynia (c. 325 C.E.). 666- When Julius Piso wrote 'Revelations' and gave the number 666 ( He was pointing to his dad, who uses 666 once in his writtings as 'Josephus' ), he put in a checking number that would be the total of the names 'Jesus' & 'Christ'. This is how he did it. He made the total of the entire last phrase of Rev. 13:18 add up to the checking number, which was 2,368. The total of the checking number was from the Greek initial system, and so was the entire last phrase of Rev. 13:18, except for ... 666! Because it was not only a part of the total, but also a separate number unto itself. 666 wasn't written out as it could have been written, in the form of words (like '144,000' was); 'Six Hundred, Sixty-Six'. No, it was written in the form of three letters with numerical values! Those letters are, 'Chi', 'Xi', 'Bau'. 'Chi' stands for 'Christ' and has a numerical value of 600. The other part of 666 was 'Xi' and 'Bau'. This was 66 in small numbers. 66 was the total of the name 'Flavius Josephus' (Josepos) in small numbers. What 666 is, is 'Christ/Flavius Josephus' or 'Christ' (Jesus) 'was' Flavius Josephus! Arrius Piso himself, writting as Josephus, uses the number 666 to denote himself when saying how 'gold' was given to King Solomon. He says; '666' talents of 'gold'. 'Gold' meaning 'Flavius' (Ref. 'Josephus', 'Ant. of the Jews', Chapt. 7, verse 2). He was hinting at his descent from King Solomon through King David, as he does in Matthew 1:6, when he plays Jesus! 888- 'Jesus' in Greek initial system (IHSOUS). This was part of the checking number for 666. Recently, 888 has been seen as part of an order number for a video tape of the Pope's visit to Los Angeles that was advertised on television. 1000- 'Ch' (Chi) for 'Christ' in the 'old' initial system (Greek), which was in use even before Piso made his number system. 1000 was used in lieu of the actual name 'Christ' so as to keep the meanings hidden (sacred,hallowed), in 'Revelations'. 2368- The 'checking number' for 666, which by Pythagorean math principles, adds up to '19' ( 2 + 3 + 6 + 8 = 19 ). That's the name 'Piso' in the Greek small number system! Why did they use code? They were forced to use code. As Abelard Reuchlin says; "The Pisos, through Imperial power, were using the new faith deliberately as their instrument of control of the masses. Writing of this openly would have brought Rome's swift vengeance and the destruction of the Jewish people." Through the Gospels, epistles, and 'history', the Pisos and their relatives re-created the environment of the Roman Empire. They advised the masses to be humble and to respect authority (their own synthesized and ill gotten authority). They advised servants (slaves) to be subject to their masters (Peter 1, 2:18), no matter how they were treated! For, 'their' reward was waiting for them in heaven (Matt. 6:20). Later, when the family tried to omit 'Revelations' from the canon, Eusebius (Julius Constantius 2, Constantine's son), trys to throw you off the trail by saying something simular to - "I guess Christians put a mention of Christ in Josephus." They were descendants of Piso, coming down the line through Marcus Aurelius. Julius Constantius 2 took the 'nomes de plume' of 'Eusebius' because it was the masculine form of his second wife's name of 'Eusebia' ('Hesu', 'Bios').

"Several place names are mentioned, and the heading gives a date of the seventh year of Hadrian, i.e., A.D. 124. These, and other Greek documents are all on papyrus, but some are on skin and give administrative registers, civil and military. Jewish names like Josephus, Jesus, Saulus (Paul), and Simon appear, followed by numbers and signs." - John Allegro ('The Mystery of the Dead Sea Scrolls Revealed') 'REVELATIONS EXPOSED' 'Revelations', which was written by Julius Piso, 'reveals' the truth about Christianity. It was written specifically to be the ending to the Jesus story, and 'finis coronat opus' ('the end crowns the work'). Julius Calpernius Piso, Arrius Piso's son, wrote 'Revelations' in the year 137 C.E. It took a little while to think out 'Revelations' after the few events that followed the final dispersion of the Jews, which took place in the year 135. Julius used these two names in the 'history' of the time, 'Severus' and 'Servianus', which were derivatives of the family name inherited from his mother (Boionia 'Servilia' Priscilla). The book of 'Revelations' was written as the ending of the Jesus story, so it was the one great power that Julius had. Arrius Piso gave his sons authority over his Jesus story in this way; he gave Justus Piso the right to play Jesus (in the Fourth Gospel), and he gave Julius the right to end the story, because even early on, it was a concern of Julius' that this Jesus story not last forever. In writing the New Testament, the family used a play on words. In Revelations, Julius used a few of his own, mixed with a few of his favorites from previous books. He uses the Piso number 42, which was used earlier in Matthew 1:17. Julius alludes to the war that he had helped Hadrian to fight, that lasted over 3 years. This helps to date 'Revelations'. Where Julius Piso says 'forty-two months', he is saying, three and a half years! Rev. 11:2, "They shall trample upon the holy city (Jerusalem) forty-two months (three and a half years)." And in Rev. 13:5, authority was given to the beast (ippos, Piso) to act forty-two months. And just before that he says, "Who is able to make war with the beast?" Julius means this two ways. First, he means that another beast (Piso) is able to make war with the beast (Piso). He is saying that he is able to make war with the other Pisos, and that this is the way that he was doing it. Second, he means the battle itself, paying homage to the brave Jews that died trying to fight the Pisos. In a way, kind of apologizing to the Jews for causing the Diaspora. Because of an obscure passage (in Ezekiel 39:11,15), mentioning the 'Valley of Hamon-Gog', Julius is able to allude to his father again by using 'Gog' in Revelations. Josephus (Arrius Piso) wrote the first version of the book that we know of as 'Esther', where the character 'Hamen' has a gallows built, only to end up being hung upon it himself. That version was written around the year 95 C.E. The Jews started calling Arrius Piso 'Hamen' or 'Hamon', saying that the Temple was destroyed by 'Hamin' and 'son of Hamin'. Calling Arrius Piso 'Hamin' ('Hamen'), they were saying that he worked only to hang himself in the end. Rabbi Akiba (Akiva) had re-written the book of 'Esther' for the Jews in 110 C.E., and started the holiday feast of Purim as a way for future generations to remember the great war of the Pisos against the Jews. They would make triangular cakes and pastries mimicking the Trinity & triangular numbers used by the Pisos. While the Pisos had Christians make cakes ( called 'cross-top buns' ) and mark them with a 'T' for the cross. But Julius didn't stop there, by just associating 'Hamon' with 'Gog' to identify his father. He uses 'Gog' with 'Magog'. Who is 'Magog'? Justus Piso! Why? Because Justus also plays Jesus. 'Gog' and son of 'Gog'. They are the same as 'Balaam' & 'Balak'. 'Balaam' being Arrius Piso, and 'Balak' being Justus Piso. That's why in Rev. 2:14, Julius says; "Balaam (Nicolas, Lamed Vov i.e., Arrius Piso) taught Balak to cast a snare." Father taught son. Here is the real reason why Santa Claus is 'Saint Nick'. Father was 'Balaam', which is Hebrew for the Greek name 'Nicolas'. Arrius already was 'Nicolas', because he was 'Nicomachus' (victor of the battle). In Rev. 2:15, Julius says that he hates the 'Nicolaitanes' (the followers of Nicolas/Balaam). Note: Also see the Jewish 'Gittin'. In Rev. 12:14, Julius says 'Mountains that move'. A 'living Mountain' would move. How about a person named 'Mountain'? 'Mountanus', that's Arrius Piso's other name in 'history'. In Rev. 3:12, he says, " The New Jerusalem." That's the Jerusalem after the war - Juppiter Capitolinus. They called Jerusalem - 'J. C.', after Jesus Christ/Josephus Calpernius. Rev. 9:7, "Locusts like horses with the faces of a man." 'Locusta' is a family name, and 'horses' (ippos, Piso) with the face of a man, is a hint at what is meant by 'beast' - 'beast' was a 'horse' i.e., 'ippos', which is 'Piso' re-arranged. Julius made several ways to check the meaning of 'beast' in Revelations. Using the number system, he simply uses the Greek word for 'beast' exactly 60 times ('60' being the total of the names 'Kalpournios Piso'). He uses the word 'ippos' ('horse') 16 times. That's 'P' for 'Piso'. Looking back at Luke 10:34, and Acts 23:23-24, we find that 'beast' does mean 'horse'. And remember, 'Josephus' was originally 'Josepos'? Phonetically with the first 'o' as a long 'o', 'Jos - ippos'! And, of course, once we know all of this, and that 'horse' ('ippos') is 'Piso', then we know that the mark of the 'beast' (that Julius was refering to), was - 'the cross'! My, haven't things turned around 180 degrees! Most of the family members knew Egyptian (Justus sneaks the Egyptian word 'baion' i.e., 'palm branch' into John 12:13), and Egyptian hieroglyphics were used until about the year 350 C.E. The Egyptian hieroglyphic 'T' literally meant 'a mark', of course, we know that the Pisos made 'T' stand for 'the cross'! The first line of 'Revelations'. Rev. 1:1, "(The) Revelation of Jesus Christ, ..." Yes, the revealing of Jesus! Little by little, Julius tells us that this book, 'Revelations', is the beginning of the end of Christianity! In Rev. 1:3, he says, "the time is near!" Yes, the time is near, because you are reading the book that brings that time near - 'Revelations'! In Rev. 1:5, Julius calls Jesus 'the first begotten of the dead'. This is 'first-class' wit. Naturally, you'd think that it should be 'the only begotten (son) of God', but this says more. First, the superficial allusion is that Jesus was the first to be resurrected. But this was only in keeping with being able to say things with entirely different meanings without leaving the main story line. Its 'alter', or 'double' meaning, being a confirmation of what had already been suspected. 'The first begotten', meaning 'the eldest'. Arrius was older than his sister 'Fannia'. 'Of the dead' meaning, of the dead father - Gaius Piso! In 'history', Thrasea Paetus (Gaius Piso) and his wife (Arria the Younger), consider the welfare of their 'child'. Yet, only one child of theirs is mentioned by name, a daughter (which was not of much consequence then), 'Fannia'. They, were in fact, contemplating the fate of their 'male' child - Arrius! Rev. 1:7, "... and they pierced him," Julius is speaking of Jesus being pierced by the sword while on the cross. Then, later in Rev. 13:14, he says about the beast; "which has the wound of the sword and lived." Let's look at Rev. 1:7 one more time. "Behold, he comes out of the clouds (of confusion), and every eye shall see him, and they which pierced him, and all of the tribes of the earth shall wail on account (because) of him." Yes, now that the confusion is lifted, every eye shall see 'him'. He is Arrius (Josephus) Piso! And 'they which pierced him' are those who broke through the code, to find out who 'he' was. All of 'the tribes' (the twelve tribes of the New Israel which Arrius Piso created, i.e., those in rule by the false authority derived from a synthesized code as set forth by the Piso family and their descendants in the form of rhetoric, dogma, and ideologies). And, "shall wail on account of 'him'." Not 'for' him. 'Him', of course meaning 'Jesus' (Arrius Piso). It would seem that there has been enough wailing on account of him. Julius keeps giving hints in 'Revelations'. In Rev. 18:16, he says 'precious' to use the word/name 'Timious' ('of Timothy'). To honor him that is of Timothy (Julianus), that is Marcus Aurelius, born 121 C.E. Perhaps another reason why 666 was chosen was because Arrius Piso's ancestor Lucius Cornelius Sylla (Sulla) Epaphroditus took control of Athens in the old Roman year 666, which was the year 85 B.C.E. by our present calendar (the Julian calendar, established by Arrius Piso's great-grandfather, Julius Caesar, in 46 B.C.E.). If so, this could be a further hint that it was Arrius Piso himself who was the Epaphroditus who killed Nero. Arrius Piso would have inherited the name 'Epaphroditus'. Julius Piso is the only family member to use the name 'Michael' in the New testament and he uses it only in two places, Jude 9, and Rev. 12:7. Why did he use the name 'Michael'? Because in Hebrew, 'Michael' is like a question. It means "who is like God?" Julius puts his father's very name in 'Revelations' by mentioning a 'denarius' in Rev. 6:6. Julius makes Jesus (Arrius Piso) say; "I am alpha and omega, first and last." The first letter of Arrius Piso's name is 'A' (alpha), and the last letter of 'Piso' is 'O' (omega). Clever, isn't it? 'Revelations' is jam-packed full of hints and clues, and it is now serving its purpose - to be the end of the Jesus story. In Rev. 22:16, he 'makes' his father say; "I am the root" (the beginning of the Christian world). And in that same sentence, he goes on to say, "and the offspring of David, the bright (Lucifer) and morning star." Ah, and now, about 'THE SEVEN SEALS'. The 'seven seals', which are in Rev. 6:1 - 8:13, are the keys to how they hid their identities in both 'history' & the New Testament. 1. Arrius Piso, riding on a white ('Albinus') horse ('ippos', 'Piso'), who was Arrius Piso's Uncle, Lucius Piso. 2. The color code. They used a color code for names, like 'Albinus' for white, 'Melas' for black, 'Fuscus' for brown, 'Chrysos' & 'Flavius' for gold, 'Chlorus' for green, 'Galen' for blue, and 'Kokkes' for red. 3. Double talk, or 'double meanings'. 4. Inherited Titles. 5. That they hid things in 'history'. 6. Alias names. The 'sixth' seal is 'the seal of the living god' a.k.a. the Caesars. In this part of Revelations, we have the twelve tribes of Israel, which are really the 12 sons of Jacob cleverly disquised. Where can we find this? Exodus 1:1, Rev. 7:4-8, and Josephus, Book V of 'Antiquities of the Jews', Chapter 1! Julius exchanges 'Dan' for 'Manasses', because both names tell something. He uses 'Manasses' because 'Manasses' was the 'son of Joseph'. And he omits 'Dan' because 'Dan' had an 'only begotten son'. 7. The 'waters' (or 'seas'), being the multitudes of 'people' (water into wine). The sober masses were made drunk on the 'new' wine, i.e., the New Testament. Also, in Rev. 8:13, Julius says; "Woe, woe, woe ...", in Greek, "OUAI, OUAI, OUAI ...". Which in Hebrew is "Oy vaii, oy vaii, oy vaii! Which is to say (about the war), it is 'Veii' all over again. The Roman General Marcus Furius Camillus conquered the city of Veii, which was only 8 miles North of Rome, in 396 B.C.E. 'THE CORRELATIONS BETWEEN THE NEW TESTAMENT & JOSEPHUS' Now that Revelations has lead us to suspect Josephus, let's take a look. 1. The 'Abba' issue. In the New Testament, Jesus, dying on the cross, calls out to God using the word 'abba' - 'father'. And lo, and behold, we find Josephus using this same word while describing something similar in Chapter 8, verse 7, of 'Wars of the Jews'. 2. We find 'the Egyptian' mentioned in Acts 21:38, and also in Josephus! The 'Egyptian' referred to was Arrius Piso/Josephus, because Arrius Piso was also 'Philo of Alexandria' (in Egypt), and he is descended from the 'Ptolemies' of Egypt, and because he is of Idumean (Edomite, i.e., 'Egyptian') descent. Not to mention the fact that being a descendant of King David, he has the blood of the Egyptian Pharaohes in him, because King Solomon (David's son), was married to a Pharaoh's daughter! 3. We find 'James' the brother of Jesus, and 'John the Baptist', along with Jesus himself in Josephus. 4. In the N.T., Jesus is tempted to jump from the Temple in the exact same place that we find described in Josephus! 5. The 'son' cometh! The son of God, the son of man, cometh! Hear ye, hear ye! When 'Josephus' describes the way in which rocks were hurled over the walls by the Romans during the war, he makes the Jews look up and say, "the 'stone' cometh!" Only he deliberately misspells 'stone'. He says, "O UIOS EPXETAI!", "THE 'SON' COMETH!" ('Wars of the Jews', Josephus, Chap. VI, verse 3). 6. And, if you hadn't already guessed, Josephus is the very first person 'in history' to mention 'Jesus'. 7. In Rev. 22:18-19, Julius speaks of adding or taking away from this book (not meaning the bible, or even the New Testament, but his book 'Revelations'), he didn't want anyone changing what he had put in Revelations! And the kicker is that he even borrows this from his dad's book 'Antiquities of the Jews' (Chapt. X, verse VI, Book X). There, Josephus says; "In the beginning of this 'history', I intended to do no more than transate the Hebrew books into the Greek language, and promised them to explain those facts, without adding (anything) to them of my own, or taking (anything) away from them." And, reading on in Josephus, we find the letter of Aristeas, where Josephus goes on to hint about his editing the Greek septuagint (Book XII, Chap. 2, verse 2). The Greek Septuagint is also called the 'LXX' or 'the Seventy'. It is alluded to in Luke 10:17. 'THE KEY' _________ THE FIRST 28 ROMAN CAESARS IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER 1. JULIUS 2. AUGUSTUS 3.

However, their true descent has not yet been uncovered. This was the true secret of the Roman Empire. It is rumoured that Marcus Aurelius either had or wrote a book called 'The Key'. It was not a public work, it was written only for the family. What the book was, was most likely 'the key' to the secret of the Roman Empire, that being, that all of the Caesars were already Caesars. So, the book would have been a 'key' to the descent of all of the Caesars up to that time. The purpose? To legitimize their claim within the family to their right beyond anyone else to rule. This book would give the names used by each member of the family along with their descent and right to use those names. I have done my best to reconstruct 'The Key' up to this point.

The rulers in Judea, started out by giving the Jews a pantheistic religion, as can be found by examining the first few words of the oldest original versions of Genesis 1:1. This first Jewish religion was built around the first five books of the Jewish scripture - the Torah. About the time of King Herod, the Jewish religion began to change because of Hillel the Pharisee and the Pharisaic Party. The Jews were becoming humanistic and intolerant to slavery. The first compilation of the Bible as we know it, was done by the Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius and his relative who wrote in Hebrew and Aramaic - Rabbi Judah The Prince. This was around the year 180 C.E. They were related through the Gamaliel line that went back to Hillel the Pharisee. Now, we start to find that many of the so-called 'Old Testament' books were actually written after the 'New Testament' books, and after the despersion of the Jews! Also, St. Jerome was a descendant of the Piso family. However, he didn't write until much later (circa 380 C.E.). St. Jerome did what he had to do, translate the manuscripts from Greek to Latin. Why? Because it is fairly easy for any person who is literate in Hellenistic Greek (and the 'history' of the time), to see what had been done. There was a fight in the family to omit 'Revelations' from the canon because people were figuring out 666. This was the council of Nicaea circa 325 C.E. So, one solution they came up with was to change 666 to 616. But because there were already so many copies of the manuscript out with 666, and the writer (Julius Piso) stated in it that nothing be added or taken away from the book of Revelations, this did not work. The other alternative? Put it into another language - Latin. The 'Vulgate' (Latin) version was used almost exclusively from the time of St. Jerome (380 C.E.), until 1611, when the King James version was published in English (under the supervision of King James 1 of England). Because in any other language but the original, the true meanings would be almost impossible to discover. Lastly, I just have to fit this little bit in for those 'scholars' who will try to 'sock it to me' with a little commentary on Josephus' 'Vita'. In his 'Vita', Josephus (Arrius) states that he has three sons (five, but two are 'dead'). One son, 'Alexander' was dead when Josephus (Arrius Piso) wrote his 'Vita'. The other 'son' (that he was hoping for) was 'dead', because 'he' was a daughter named Pompiea Plotina Calpurnia Pisa. The Hasmonean names of his fictional sons are; John Hyrcanus, Justus (remember, they are actually Flavians), and Agrippa Simon. Now, what would their Roman names be? The son J. Hyrcanus would be the same age as Julius Calpernius Piso. The next son, recalls 'Fabius Justus'. Now, what about the other son? A name seen in the 'history' of the time is 'S. Proculus' in Pliny. He may have been named after their relative 'Proculus Vitellius', the brother of the Roman Emperor Aulus Vitellius. REFERENCES FOR THE ROMAN SIDE OF THE WAR Josephus (c. 90 C.E.)
