Overview

On a quest to locate St. Paul (Saul) in the historical record, scholar Ralph Ellis found evidence that St. Paul was actually Josephus Flavius, the first century Jewish historian. This novel identification has exposed new perspectives on the life of Jesus. Ellis asserts that contrary to orthodox perceptions, King Jesus and Queen Mary Magdalene were the richest couple in the Levant, owning a city-state in eastern Syrio-Jordan and a private army. The Romans wanted to impose taxes on Jesus and Mary, an imposition that provoked the Jewish Rebellion. King Jesus fought and lost that war, and so he was crucified, reprieved and placed in custody. The safest place to corral this dangerous royal rebel was in a fortress at the opposite end of the Roman Empire, which is why King Jesus was exiled to England. In those remote Romo-Celtic lands, King Jesus became famous once again, but there the locals called him and his disciples "King Arthur and the twelve knights of the Last Supper Table." All research and quotations are from original sources, including the New Testament, Tanakh, Talmud, Josephus, Origen, Eusebius, Irenaeus, Herodian, Suetonius, Tacitus, Clement, Barnabas, Chretien and many others.

    Fascinating read

    Ellis is out on a limb, here, with his assertion that Jesus was King Arthur. However, I have to say that he has discovered a great deal of supporting evidence that I knew nothing of. The thesis is not proven, by any means, but he is a long way down that route and it is entirely possible that a solution will eventually be found. Some fascinating side-topics too. The suggestion that St Paul was Josephus is interesting too, and I think Ellis has proven his case there. But this is ground-breaking, because this identification changes the whole nature of Christianity, as he points out. Interesting read, to say the least.
