Catholicism preaches that Jesus Christ was born of a virgin by immaculate conception, grew up to mingle with men and women, ate earthly food, and died by crucifixion on a cross … yet not one historian of the time wrote about any aspect of his life. For centuries, dozens of great classical scribes recorded early religious beliefs but never mentioned Christianity, the Gospels, virgin Mary, a crucifixion or resurrection of Jesus Christ, Mary Magdalene, Peter, John the Baptist, Lazarus, or ‘apostles’. Nor did they mention the spectacular miracles that the Vatican says accompanied the life of Jesus Christ, increasing the embarrassment from the silence of history concerning the foundation of Christianity. The Vatican offered this explanation for this glaring historic inconsistency:
‘It would seem that the historians of the time never went to the trouble to write down, at least in an enduring manner, the names of the Holy Gospel figures. If they did, their records have been lost. It is therefore understandable that there is so much speculating and theorizing about Christian origins because nobody can find references to the Christian heroes outside the Gospels’.
(‘Catholic Encyclopedia’, Pecci Ed., Vol., ii, p. 417)
That is because they never existed. It is important to remember that it was a peculiar body of itinerant people called ‘pulpiteers’, or ‘pleaders’ who said Jesus Christ lived, nobody else. They roamed the country with personal harems, never appearing ‘in the circles of the wiser and better sort, but always took care to intrude themselves among the ignorant and uncultured, rambling around to play tricks at fairs and markets’ (‘Contra Celsus’, Bk. I, lxvii, book III, chap. xliv). Their writings were ever-changing compilations of ancient myths and fictional tales: ‘They lard their lean books with the fat of old fables … and still the less do they understand … and they write nonsense on vellum … and still be doing, never done’ (ibid). Educated classes of the times called them ‘charlatans and vagrants’ (‘The Letters of Jerome’); today the Church of Rome calls them the ‘Christian Fathers’.
Gospels untruthful presented
For what the Vatican presents as history in the Gospels, it can provide no evidence, for the Gospels are not expressions of reality and are misunderstood if taken as products of historical thinking. The Vatican’s presentation of the New Testament is not honest, and no words are strong enough to express the meaning of this ongoing and willful spiritual deception. Simply put, there are no legitimate First, Second or Third Century references to Jesus Christ or the Gospel personalities because the construct of Christianity did not commence until a later time.
