New Book Reveals the Monumental Secret Surrounding the Crucifixion

Share Article

Julian Doyle’s captivating, real life detective story will take you on an extraordinary journey of discovery.

Throughout the history of Christianity there have been those claiming a monumental secret. Often centered around the Church of St. Sulpice in Paris and associated with French esoteric circles, like Debussy who wrote in a review: “Perhaps it’s to destroy that scandalous legend that Jesus Christ died on the cross.”

In the past, there must have been some documentation that convinced so many people of something portentous. But now in the most compelling piece of detective work on the subject, author and filmmaker, Julian Doyle finally reveal the extraordinary facts that prove exactly what the monumental secret was and its validity, making a re-write of history inevitable.

Doyle rests much of his findings on Roman History and the writings of the Jewish historian, Josephus who was alive at this very time. Aligning these writings with biblical events, Doyle discerns glaring inconsistencies, from which he produces an extraordinary Timeline that he reveals right from the Introduction to the book and then substantiates with evidence.

AD 26 - Pilate arrives in Judea. [date confirmed]
AD 34 - Herod’s brother Philip dies. [confirmed]
AD 34 - Herod divorces his first wife who returns to her father King Aretas of Petra.
AD 34/35 - Herod now marries Philips’ ex-wife Herodias.
AD 34/35 - The Baptist complains about this marriage.
AD 34/35 - Herod arrests the Baptist.
AD 35 - Lucius Vitellius becomes legate of Syria. [confirmed]
AD 35 - Herod kills the Baptist.
AD 35/36 - Insulted King Aretas goes to war and wipes out Herod’s army. [confirmed]
AD 36 - Josephus writes the Jews thought the defeat was God’s revenge for the Killing of John the Baptist. [confirmed]
AD 36 - Vitellius sacks Pontius Pilate who leaves Judea [confirmed]
AD 36 - Tiberius instructs Vitellius to take revenge on Aretas for Herodian war.
AD 37 - Vitllius sets out to attack.
AD 37 - Tiberius dies (16th March) [confirmed]
AD 37 - Vitellius stops attack when news arrives of Tiberius death and waits for instructions from Caligula. [confirmed]
AD 37 - Vitellius arrives back in Jerusalem to be welcomed by cheering crowds; he then cancels taxes and allows the Judean Priests custody over their own vestments, giving a period of peace [confirmed]
AD 37 - In this period of peace Jesus practices his mission.
AD 38 - Jesus is killed.

This introduction to the book is then confirmed with information from Roman history, the Bible and snippets from Josephus’ second book ‘Antiquities of the Jews’. But a simple proof that this timeline is accurate can be gleaned, by a simple examination of these important events in Josephus first book, ‘The Jewish War’ which covers exactly this important period. Doyle now proclaims, “They are absent!” There is no description of the destruction of Herod’s army, no mention of John the Baptist and more extraordinarily, no mention of the important and influential Legate of Syria, Vitellius, who played a vital role in this period of Jewish history. No mention of him at all in the whole book.

Doyle says, “As these are vital events in the build up to the war there can only be one reason for their absence. Christians have cut them out because the full explanation would only confirm this Timeline, that totally undermines the Gospel story by having John the Baptist still alive three years after the supposed crucifixion and Jesus alive after Pilate left Judea. There can be no other reason.”

Additionally, Doyle uses his professional work as an editor on the film ‘Monty Python’s Life of Brian,’ to examine the practicality of crucifixion. He claims, “’Monty Python’s Life of Brian’ is probably the most accurate biblical film ever made and, when we attempted to crucify the Pythons, for the musical ending of the film, we realized it was impossible!”

Doyle’s work shares undeniable facts and compelling evidence with astonishing conclusions.
