WATCH: The Flavian Thesis: Legitimation and Context – Rod Blackhirst, PhD – “Caesar’s Messiah: The Roman Conspiracy to Invent Jesus”

Shalom everyone! The following is a video clip of an interview given by Rod Blackhirst PhD, a lecturer in Religious Studies at La Trobe University in Australia, in which he presents how the Roman Flavian emperors legitimized their power by creating the religion of Christianity, which was created for purely for political reasons. Dr. Blackhirst shows the Romans feared Judean messianism and aspirations of independence, and therefore created Christianity to counter these movements. This interview was included in the 2013 documentary, “Caesar’s Messiah: The Roman Conspiracy to Invent Jesus”:


“Dr. Rod Blackhirst, Lecturer in Religious Studies at La Trobe University, Australia explains how he independently came to the conclusion that the Flavian Caesars created Christianity. This is an excerpt from the complete Blackhirst interview done for the Caesar’s Messiah documentary. It is available as a Bonus Scene on the Blu-ray dvd of “Caesar’s Messiah: The Roman Conspiracy to Invent Jesus” produced by Fritz Heede, Nijole Sparkis and Joe Atwill.”
