According to Dr Dorothy Thompson in The Synthesis Of Christianity, Ancient Rome’s Piso Family are the true Authors of the New Testament.
Calpurnius Piso was Head of the Aristocratic Piso Family, and Dr Thompson contends that it was Calpurnius Piso using the alias Flavius Josephus who supervised the writing of all the Books of the New Testament by his family beginning with the 1st Gospel of Mark.
Dr Thompson states that the Piso Family wrote all the Books of the New Testament as part of the Roman Empire’s effort to control the Province of Judea using Christianity after the 1st Jewish-Roman War had led to the Roman Siege of Jerusalem and the destruction of the 2nd Jewish Temple.
The Reasons The Piso Family Wrote The Books Of The New Testament
The Piso Family were Roman Aristocrats who wrote all the Books of the New Testament as a Propaganda tool to enable them to exercise greater control over the troublesome region of Judea.
Thus the New Testament and all its characters including Jesus did not exist because the New Testament characters are part of a fictional propaganda story written in all the Books of the New Testament by the Piso Family.
The Piso Family wrote the Books of the New Testament because during the 1st Century CE, the Roman Empire was faced with increasing hostility from the Province of Judea since Judaism as a Monotheistic Religion was not compatible with the Roman Imperial Cult which required that all subjects of the Roman Empire worship the Roman Emperor as a God.
In addition to being Roman Aristocrats, the Piso Family were also related to the Herodian Dynasty which Ruled Judea as a Vassal of Rome.
As such, solving the problem of Jewish resistance to the Roman Imperial Cult would strengthen the Piso family’s control of Judaea. The Piso Family found the perfect solution to its problems in the Jewish Holy Books seized from the Jewish Temple during the Roman-Jewish War.
In order to counter the rise of Jewish Militancy in resistance to the Roman Imperial Cult, the Piso Family wrote all the Books of the New Testament with the deliberate aim of introducing a Pacifist Religion to Judea starting with the Gospel of Mark, which was written as the First Book of the New Testament by the Piso Family.
Thus after the siege of Jerusalem, the Piso Family wrote all the Books of the New Testament in response to the need to pacify rebellious Jewish sects such as the Zealots that were still opposed to Roman Rule in Judea after the fall of Jerusalem.
Consequently, it can be said that the Piso family wrote all the books of the New Testament starting with the Gospels all the way up to Revelation using fictitious characters and stories to create a new Pacifist Religion that ultimately enabled the Roman Empire to unite its subjects under the banner of a new Religion despite initial resistance to the Imperial Cult.
Whether the Piso Family wrote all the Books of the New Testament or not, the emergence of the First Gospel of Mark continues to be an intriguing Theological question.
It is interesting to note that the Gospels promote a Pacifist Religion which preaches first to the Jews in the Gospels, and then thereafter to the rest of the Greco-Roman world (Gentiles) to obey Roman Law by amongst other things paying Taxes and ‘rendering onto Ceasar what is Ceasar’s’.
From this perspective the idea that an Aristocratic Roman Family such as the Piso Family wrote all the books of the New Testament in order to firstly control the rebellious Jews of Judea and secondly, the rest of the Greco-Roman world through a new Pacifist Religion that offered little resistance to the Roman Imperial Cult is possible.
Another important aspect to consider is also that the story of Jesus told in the New Testament by the Piso Family was in itself an adaptation of the earlier Greek Serapis Saviour Myth which began in Ancient Egypt under Ptolemy I after the Greek Conquest of Egypt. The same strategy may also have been used in the creation of Islam as some Historians argue that Muhammad never existed and is a fictional literary character created to legitimise the new Religion of Islam after the fall of the Byzantine Eastern Roman Empire following the fall of Constantinople.
