According to Carotta JC stands for Julius Caesar -- not Jesus Christ. There is no Jesus Christ and there never was such a person. He is purely the figment of Rome’s imagination as depicted by the Piso Family, confirmed by Flavian Josephus, a captured Jewish General, who turned ‘Queen’s evidence’ on his own people, the Jews. He is also the much used and useful icon of successive Popes.

According to Carotta Jesus looks like Caesar, their lives are congruent, their families are the same, their respective kinfolk are peopled with parallel personages whose names and locations are the same or similar to each other, Caesar’s hard won victories become Jesus’ miracles. Caesar’s Pompey is Jesus’ John (the Baptist), Caesar’s Antonius is Jesus’ Simon etc.. Caesar’s Senate is Jesus’ Sanhedrim, Caesar’s Gaul is Jesus’ Galilee, Caesar’s Rubicon is Jesus’ Jordan, Caesar’s Rome is Jesus’ Jerusalem, etc..

And if Julius had his moll in Cleopatra, Jesus had his moll in Mary Magdalen

THE JESUS JOKE : Part 1 by Seamus Breathnach
 
THE JESUS JOKEOR,FAREWELL TO THEMEDITERRANEAN MYTH
 It happened a long time ago. America hadn’t been invented. Neither hadIslam, Jesus, the Papacy or any of the nation states we have come torecognise. But in the mediterranean there was a bit of stir by a chapcalling himself Julius Caesar. Caesar by all accounts was a canny Roman.He was born about 100 years before one even heard about Jesus Christor Christians. Some say he was born by way of Caesarean operation, toAurelia and a praetor suitably called Gaius Julius Caesar. His family wereof patrician stock, and his aunt Julia was the wife of Gaius Marius, theboss-man of the Popular faction.As we all know, Caesar was his own man -- or as much of one as waspermissible at that time. He scaled the heights and was more intelligentand less brutal than his rivals, Sulla and Pompey and Pompey’s sons. In45 BCE, when he returned to Rome, he celebrated his triumphs overGnaeus Pompey. The Romans would have preferred if he celebrated hisconquests over less home-spun enemies: but in the end Romans wereless squeamish over the shedding of blood (whomsoever' blood ithappened to be) more than most.On February 15 44 BCE, even as he was named perpetual dictator, at thefeast of Lupercalia, Caesar donned himself in purple and paraded himself in public, not unlike what a modern Pope , as Pontifex Maximus (highestpriest), might do in the Vatican. The difference was that Caesar waspreparing to lead a military campaign against the Parthians, the samewho had killed Crassus, and taken his legionary eagles from him. Butwhen Caesar came to attend the Senate, no less than sixty conspirators,who came to the same assembly, each one with a dagger stuck up histoga. At least 23 of them found their way into Caesar’s flesh at theproverbial base of Pompey's statue. One can only imagine whathappened after the assassination.

The Senators fled in all directions. It was left to three slaves to pick upthe dead Caesar and carry him home to his wife, Calpurnia. There was alull before the storm, and a bit like the Anglo-Americans in modern dayIraq and Afghanistan, it soon became apparent that the conspirators hadno plan beyond the initial assault. Part of their oversight included MarkAntony: they forgot to execute him with Caesar.Moreover, Mark Antony had a legion under his command, as well asCaesar’s Last Will and Testament, the senators had to fall back on thegood offices of some gladiators and their inimitable oratory. And as MarkAntony heads for Egypt, to Cleopatra and to Caesarea, Caesar’s son byCleopatra, the world of the Roman Empire opens up into two irreparablehalves.But it is here, at Pompey’s statute, at the death-place of Caesar, wherethe Jesus-Joke is first conceived. After Caesar's assassination, a bloodycivil war ensues throughout the Roman Empire. The long-termcompeting ambitions of Octavian (in the West) and Mark Anthonysupporting Caesar’s son by Cleopatra (in the East) erupted into openantagonism. The Empire was at stake and both parties coveted the moraland religious mantle left behind by the deified Caesar, about whose lifeand death there had arisen a cult known as Divus Iulius. The PaganEmpire in schism became localised oppositionally with Octavian in Romeand Anthony in Alexandria -- an arrangement which created thestructures upon which Christianity later built its own schism as betweenRoman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy.More importantly, when Octavian got the upper hand of Anthony andCleopatra, he consolidated his control over the Eastern Empire andthought to secure it by persecuting the cult of Divus Iulius in all its formsand aspects, especially where they stood as mementoes of Anthony andCleopatra and derivatively to the realm of Julius Caesar, whose longshadow had by no means left the psyche of either Rome or themediterranean. Perhaps this imperial hatred explains to some extent thepersecution of the early christians as well as the inveterate hatred of theChurch triumphant against ‘heretics’. ‘Heretics’, of course, with theChurch’s expansion in the world, mutate into ‘pagans’, ‘witches’ , ‘women’, ‘Donatists’, ‘Cathars’, ‘Albigensians’, ‘Jews’, ‘Protestants’ , ‘Reformers’, ‘Fratecelli’, ‘Socialists’, ‘Atheists’, ‘Universal Communists’, ‘Vietnamese’, ‘Universal Secularists’, ‘Homosexuals’ and , more recently,those who fight back -- ‘Terrorists!’ As one might expect, the cult of Divus Iulius changed over time andlocalization, but along the shores of Galilee, however, it left an indelibleimpression. When we fast forward slightly to Vespasian and his sons,

Titus and Domitian, we find that they maintained the Flavian Dynastyfrom 69 - 96 CE, which period parallels both the rise of the Christianmovement and the tenure of Flavian Josephus as court historian.Since the Vespasians had little or no claim by way of blood to the Iulianfamily, their first aristocratic concern was their need to legitimate theirclaim to the throne left vacant by the defied Caesar and more recentlyby Nero. As it happened, Vespasian the Elder left young Titus toprosecute the war against the Jews in Judea. It was a long, brutal, crueland devastating war, culminating in Massada and the eventualdestruction of the Jews in a way that is not identifiable throughout thedestruction of the pagan Gaels. Out of their Generals the captiveJosephus impresses himself upon the Vespasians and becomes friendswith Titus. And in due course when Titus becomes Emperor, Josephusbecomes the empire’s scribe. And it is at this time -- in 3the 70s, 80sand 90s -- that the Bibles are written: a time which seems to have aparticular interest for the latest biblical scholars.Some say the Bibles are merely a weapon in the war between thefactions spawned by Caesar’s death, others that they are a disguisedrecord of Caesar as Pontifex Maximus, and others still -- but in the samevein -- that they (or part of them) are a record of the military exploits of Titus Flavius Vespasian. In this, the Gospels are also a fictional version of the character ‘Jesus’, which is presented to the warlike and messianicJews, in an attempt to mollify their desires for a Messiah. The Messiahthe Jews want, of course, is an avenging angel of death, who wouldrepay Massada and the other indignities of the Roman conquest. Whatthe Bibles offer -- a la Joesphus and Titus -- is a whining turn-the-other-cheek Messiah: one that can present no real threat to the future of theRoman Empire (or, by curious derivation, to the fascists of WW11 --Franco, Mussolini, Hitler, Ante Pavelic , Pinochet, etc, etc.)As such, then, the JC of the Christian Bibles amounts to a sustainedsatire upon the divinity of Julius Caesar and an acclamation of thedivinity of Titus. Even more: the Bibles sustain an invented God, aChristian Jesus, who is meant to appease the residual longings in thedefeated Jews for a Messiah. In fact as well as in history, however, theonly people that Jesus, the Roman marionette, fools is the splintergroup-- those who now call themselves Christians, those who havehitherto never mentioned theirleader/founder by name.The Bibles are meant to announce to a defeated, militant, messianicJudea, the epiphany of their long awaited Messiah, his life and immortaldeath, as well as his most important renunciation of violence.
