Overview

Jesus Christ: A Pagan Myth, is a detailed comparison of the religious and ethical beliefs held by the Greco-Roman world and the views held by Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles, and the Gospel of Mark, the earliest written gospel in the New Testament.
Why do Mark and the gospels that followed him, as well as Paul's letters, reflect not Jewish ethics but rather the Stoic ethics of the Greco-Roman pagan world? Why the striking similarity between the religion of Paul and the mystery religions of the pagan world which surrounded him?
Why are Mark and Paul so anti-Jewish? Why are Jesus' last words "Why have you (God) abandoned me?" Why does Jesus feel he is dying on the cross, a failure, that he is deserted by God?
Jesus Christ: A Pagan Myth presents evidence that Jesus is a literary fiction, one derived from a Greco-Roman pagan environment. This evidence is taken from the New Testament, particularly from Mark and the letters of Paul, and from modern Christian scholars.
