What ‘Really’ Happened? History’s most impacting century remains its most miss-represented. A new appraisal based on suppressed archives assesses a long due varied consideration of this history. Rome’s war with the Jews was neither about power nor terrain; nor even against the Jews per se who otherwise held prominent positions in Rome’s institutions. Rome allowed freedom of belief to all her conquered nations, acquiring a plethora of deities for worship; Rome accumulated 400 Gods. Yet this war was different from all other wars. The Jews would not ‘do as the Romans do’ - they followed laws that Rome called as the Hebrew sorcery: “So you are the only people who reject my divinity!” – Caligula, 37 AD/CE. “Gods are Gods - What difference which one!” – Vespasian, 68 AD/CE. This was a Holy War. It turned history and humanity as no other. Rome’s greatest weapon, more so than her military might, was her par excellence in guile and propaganda. Rome allowed no adverse reporting, scrutinizing all writings and killing any who dared her, including prominent Roman philosophers such as Helvidius Priscus. It is why we have a total absence of any Hebrew or Christian writing evidences from the first two centuries. The Dead Sea Scrolls were saved under extraordinary means and became the sole authentic manuscript of this period; all else is questioned by historians. Here, who won this war, Rome or the Jews, becomes conditional to the question being a retrospective or contemporaneous one. It was a time when Christianity was yet not a religion and Islam centuries away. Here, history itself tilted and the un-expected happened; the victor became vanquished and the utterly vanquished prevailed. According to the Roman archives, Mighty Rome’s victory was shrouded in latent defeat, with the Jews’ “No Surrender’ to the last man and woman on Masada: “And it seemed to everybody and especially to them that so far from being destruction, it was victory and salvation and happiness to the Jews that they perished along with the Temple.” – So writes Rome’s most prominent philosopher, Deo Cassius. Vespasian will throw down his victory crown in the Coliseum celebrations; 10,000 Romans will turn sides. Thereafter, the divine emperor realm itself came to a close, conquered by a new religion that became history’s biggest and most successful one. Christianity emerged as a Monotheist belief when this was least plausible, emerging out of the belly of anti-Monotheistic Rome. Christianity was born out of it: “Jesus spoke Hebrew, wore Tassels, preached only to Jews, performed sacrifices and had Hebrew writings on his cross” (Acts 26:14). "Without Judaism there would be no Christianity, and only with Judaism has Christianity a relationship with origin." – (Hans Kung.) Rome’s war with the Jews began with the Greek Empire in 300 BCE. Alexander, the devoted pupil of Aristotle, enters the Jerusalem Temple with a strange request to the temple priests: “Translate for me your Torah in the Greek tongue.” "One of the most important events in history. If the Temple might still be standing today, history would be inconceivably different." (Moses Hess; "Rome & Jerusalem")

About the Author:

About. As a documentary film writer for 25 years I produced a diverse range of subjects such as Making Movies, W.W.II: The Frank Capra Documents, Deep Space Encounters and biographical films of The Beatles and James Dean. The first century History has always been an underlying intrigue throughout. I took actual historical archives and biblical verses and re-enacted them for today's audiences - to transport, to ‘beam you’ back to that arena and time. It all began with the Queen Berenice’s enigmatic final retort to Titus, exposing a hidden core of spirituality in this infamous harlot: “What did you think this war was really all about, my brave mighty warrior?” Thereafter it became complicated. The results are sometimes unconventional, but I believe, historically faithful. What do you think this war was really all about? - Joseph Shellim.
