With about eight bonafide scholars citing facts, dates, and fascinating parallels between ancient Roman (and some pagan) historical events and the supposed events in the obviously invented life of Jesus, this Documentary is most likely to stir up a lot of controversy if not outrage from devout Christians. As a film, I found it a challenge to keep track of the names of the various Caesar's and their predecessors. However, the conclusion was quite clear, that the Romans invented the Christian religion as a political tool to control the populace. Definitely worth seeing for its educational value, but not what I would call "entertaining." Lots of photos of statues, along with pictures of ancient texts, including the Dead Sea Scrolls.
