Why are so many of the famous biblical characters missing from the historical record?


Thirty years ago, the intrepid and dogged researcher Ralph Ellis decided to find out.  Does this biblical lacuna mean that both the Old and New Testaments are fictional, as many people have claimed? Or are we simply looking in the wrong locations or perhaps even the wrong eras?

The first glimmer of the truth was not hard to see, for even the 1st century Romo-Jewish historian Josephus Flavius claimed that the Israelites were the Hyksos pharaohs of Egypt. In which case the Book of Exodus may well be correct, from a historical context, but both theologians and historians were looking in the wrong era. According to Josephus the conflated Exodus of the Hyksos-Israelite peoples was in about 1570 BC, rather than 1240 BC.  And upon further investigation it transpired that Josephus was correct: the biblical Hyksos-Israelite Exodus was a real historical event.

From this small kernel of truth, the entire biblical epic has now been transformed from mystic mythology into a central component of real secular history. All the way from Genesis to Revelations, this simple but rational reevaluation technique became the foundation for The Egyptian Exodus Series and The King Jesus Trilogy.

The New Testament story has had its chronology shifted in much the same fashion, from the AD 60s back to the AD 30s, and it is this chronological dislocation that has concealed the historical truth. In addition, while Josephus Flavius recorded the entire history of 1st century Judaea he never seemingly mentions the biblical family, because he has subtly distorted their names. But it eventually became apparent that the venerable Syriac chroniclers had preserved the original pronunciations; and so by comparing the two records, the complete biblio-history of 1st century Judaea could at last be stitched back together.

The end result, after three decades of tireless research, is that the gospel stories can now be placed back into the historical record as a critical component within Roman and Parthian history. For the historical Jesus-character was a king, just as the gospels claim, a valiant king with a large treasury and lofty ambitions to take over the Roman Empire. Which is why Jesus (Izas) was jailed alongside revolutionaries who had committed murder in the revolution. (Mk 15:7)

Perhaps readers can now see why the gospels were written in the manner they were. Rome did not appreciate revolts in its eastern realms, and sought to quell all thoughts of further unrest.  So the martial monarch called King Jesus (Izas) of Edessa became known to the wider world as a pauper prince of peace, who happily paid his Roman taxes and turned the other cheek. The industrious Roman propaganda machine that Josephus Flavius had created, had worked like a charm. But perhaps even Emperor Vespasian could not have imagined that upon the back of this temporary Imperial solution to some local unrest, that an entire religion would be born – Christianity.

Jesus, King of Edessa, UK launch

The UK launch of Jesus, King of Edessa is imminent, and it is expected that many media outlets will carry this news. To coincide with this launch a new edition has been uploaded to all tablet sites and to Amazon and Createspace paperbacks (v11.2).

This new edition contains further evidence that Jesus-Izas was a king of Edessa, and displays another very early image of him dressed as a monarch and army commander. The scene is from the Talmud, where (Jesus) presents an (imperfect) calf from Emperor Nero to the Jerusalem priesthood, which was rejected and therefore sparked the Jewish Revolt against Rome.

    Historical cred. is a debate not a given, for evangelicals, and debunkers’ as-fiction. Something both sides can seem to miss in their zeal. Make appeals to rigorous honesty and yet, how much of this engages and genuine, with the opp. lines? From my perspective, Ellis ‘n all, are rightful provokers. Where conspicuous wobbles, are what to do with Bible words themselves. Subjects and claims taken at face value and in context. If fake and construed to achieve passivity, first 300 years was an abject failure. All the remarkable C. growth. Against enough opposition. Suppose could suggest mistaken intent or planned, but would make it one mad to imagine, gamble. And with such colossal power as a myth and literature. While full of human holes — what levels of counter-intuitive compiling have we here? Make, made-up, sense? Plus, people claiming presence and connection. Authentic experience Bible says/is. Of course, the assumption would be — not. Or at least, not according to the Gospels and why/what? Must say on strength of Ellis ‘Mary Magdalene’ should be chocca with interest. As for conclusions? Y’nah-me. And as for no/few comments on Tap? Internet blues come malaise. Happenin’ here, there, and… participation of the few. Wonder if we’ll see more or what in ’18? Now censorship-off, is well on its way. But yeah… it is alarming, the so-quiet.

    The power of prayer is undeniable. And the effects of religious belief on people and the world too. But still there is no harm in knowing that this power is being subtly manipulated by church organisations with likely Satanic/pedocriminal entities at the centre, hiding if they can. Genuine people within the church are usually aghast at the doings of the church hierarchy. The historical origins of the narratives being corrupted, are part of the problem. The gnostics had great spiritual knowledge and awareness prior to Christianity. They were massacred by the Romans and others to get their knowledge destroyed so that the church hierarchy could assume total control. The Yazidis being massacred by ISIS in Iraq is just the latest such event – these were pre-Christin descendants of Jesus/Izas whose existence is a total embarrassment to the Catholic Church, as the church corrupted the history of Jesus right from the beginning using Josephus Flavius to write the narrative. The religious people I know who cast out demons and clear buildings of ghosts and spirits, do it all using the bible believing every word. Their work is fully effective, to my own knowledge. Yet even they say that the Church is incredibly ineffective in the same work, and has lost its way. It is a highly complex area, and one that needs dealing with not as one subject but as many interlocking subjects. It seems a shame that truth is seen as the enemy of spirituality, when it should be its friend. I believe that truth is always the friend of human spirituality. Church belief systems are only a channel. These channels are essential, but easily interchangeable and are mostly corrupted. If truth is not a pathway to spiritual balance then I don’t know what is.
