Mauri -

Emperor Constantine created an order for the Christian religion. Take
a look at the records about Origenes [185?ca. 254] - that can be helpful.

---------------- Your letter: ------------------
Isn't there a saying in Theosophy that might go something like: "No
religion is higher than truth"? In light of what I have read, I am
wondering about the origins of Christianity. If the historical
accounts I have read are correct, than it would appear that emperor
Constantine created the Christian religion. If so, could it be that he
also created the Jesus character, his sayings, activities,
crucifixion, place of burial, etc, around 350 AD, in order to shore up
his new official religion? I have read (I don't remember where), that
there were no contemporaries of Jesus who reported on his life.
Apparently non of the Christian Gospels were written during Jesus's
life on earth, but were all written many decades (or hundreds of
years?) later? Did the historian Josephus mention anything about the
Jesus that Constantine refers to? The name "Jesus" often comes up in
Josephus' writings in reference to various individuals, as "Jesus" was
a c ommon name, but I have yet to find any reference to any "Jesus
Christ" in his book. If I remember correctly, Josephus lived and wrote
his historical accounts around 60 AD or thereabouts.

Speculatively, Mauri
