Jesus Never Lived! Volume 3 The Pagan Morals of Jesus Christ
“Jesus Never Lived! Volume 3 The Pagan Morals Of Jesus Christ” makes a detailed comparison of pagan and Christian ethics and concludes that the New Testament morals are largely derived from pagans, especially from Greco-Roman Stoics like Seneca. This final volume in the series provides more evidence that Jesus Christ is a myth, that he never lived. We have focused on the evidence of the Roman Empire in the first and early second centuries CE. Part 1 Old Testament Parallels In The Gospels Provide Jewish Dress. The moral teachings of the gospels are falsely attributed to Jesus. Part 2 Most ancient Christian writers believed that all pagan philosophies have some Christian truth. Part 3 Christian and Pagan Stoic Morals Compared Jesus, Paul and Pagan Stoics on Sexual Morals. Christian sexual ethics are like pagan views but are more extreme; Paul is especially anti-marriage, etc. Joseph McCabe in The Religion of Woman argues that the Greco-Roman treatment of women was superior to that of the Christians. Chapter 5 Comments on Morals by Pagans and by Jesus Chapter 6 More Christian and Pagan Morals Compared: Anger to War. Chapter 7 The “Liberal” Image of Jesus. Jesus, the preacher of universal love, the champion of women, the sick and the poor, etc., is a wonderful image but one not found in the Gospels. Take a peek at this chapter. Conclusion: Mark and Paul borrowed moral values from the pagans, particularly from Stoics like Seneca. The Christians added anti-marriage; celibacy was a surer way to avoid Hell then marriage. For more, see the Look Inside feature for the Table of Contents, etc. Also, see: “Jesus Never Lived! Volume 1 Jesus Christ: A Pagan Myth” provides evidence for the idea that the origin of Christianity was Pagan. Jesus never existed; he was the pagan creation of some of the Paulinists (followers of the apostle Paul). “Jesus Never Lived! Volume 2 Jesus and Plato on Hell” is a supplemental volume which examines the Pagan views on how one is saved and on the afterlife as found in Plato and the Stoic writings of Seneca. These pagan views are compared with the Christian views found in the Gospel of Mark and the letters of Paul. Our conclusion is that Christian views on salvation and the nature of the afterlife were derived from the pagan world, thus providing more evidence for the mythical Jesus. Jesus Christ never lived. Jesus is a pagan myth. Christ is a literary fiction.
