Ranjit Kumar Paul (alias Ranajit Pal) has claimed that Asoka was Diodotus-I, that Alexander is cited in a Sanskrit Drama and that Gautama Buddha was in Babylon. Dr. Paul denies Pilate’s link with Jesus and like A. T. Olmstead, places him deep in the Herodian age. His Jesus is Amyntas of Galatia – a son of god and a lamb king in whose centers St. Paul went to preach. Amyntas came from a family of great healers and Pal seeks him in Antioch and Antioch in Pisidia. His territory was grabbed by his ‘Eli’ Augustus – a ‘son of god’ and ‘Christ’. He identifies the Gospel duo of Jesus-John as Jesus ben Fabus and John Hyrcanus-II. He holds that Jesus was active in Asia Minor, Egypt and India and the ‘resurrected’ Jesus was the Indo-Greek Amyntas Nikator who issued the largest silver coins. In this timeline St. Thomas, St. Paul and St. Barnabas mimic Hermaios Soter, Asinius Pollio and Darius, son of Pharnakes II.
Painstakingly researched and analyzed in depth, the book opens a new chapter in studies on the Historical Jesus.
