A) Be skeptical when anyone comes out as a ‘self proclaimed’ anything. Ask yourself if you would have your heart operated on by a ‘self proclaimed’ surgeon.

C) So, the Romans invented a messiah to draw people into a new, more placid faux religion... and no doubt drew even more people as they brutally slaughtered Christians and fed them to lions, and they no doubt would encourage an atmosphere of benevolence toward themselves by stating that they had killed the messiah! Wow, these Romans were masters of the psyop. This plan was airtight.
