I wish Atwill rotsa ruck explaining how Caesar could come up with a cockamamie plan like this. Folks like that are trying to explain away genuine, unmistakable supernatural events... the widest displayed miracle is not even Jesus’s earthly death and resurrection, as important as their historical acceptability are — it’s the impact that these events had in the lives of billions! It’s like the global catastrophic warmists and the evolution-only biologists. No God, no God, no God. Fools!
SO, in the theory how does Rome benefit by labeling themselves God-killers?
