    SOESTERBERG, The Netherlands, February 8 /PRNewswire/ --
     - Carotta: 'Everything of the Story of Jesus can be Found in the
 Biography of Caesar.'
     The Italian-German linguist and philosopher Francesco Carotta proves in
 his book Jesus was Caesar that the story of Jesus Christ has its origin in
 Roman sources. In more than fifteen years of investigation Carotta has found
 the traces which lead to the Julian origin of Christianity. He concludes that
 the story of Jesus is based on the narrative of the life of Julius Caesar.
     Carotta: ''The Gospel proves to be the history of the Roman Civil war, a
 'mis-telling' of the life of Caesar-from the Rubicon to his
 assassination-mutated into the narrative of Jesus, from the Jordan to his
 crucifixion. Jesus is a true historical figure, he lived as Gaius Julius
 Caesar, and ressurected as Divus Julius.''
     The cult surrounding Jesus Christ, son of God and originator of
 Christianity appeared during the second century. Early historians, however,
 never mentioned Jesus and even until now there has been no actual proof of
 his existence. Julius Caesar, son of Venus and founder of the Roman Empire,
 was elevated to the status of Imperial God, Divus Julius, after his violent
 death. The cult that surrounded him dissolved as Christianity surfaced.
     Carotta's new evidence leads to such an overwhelming amount of
 similarities between the biography of Caesar and the story of Jesus that
 coincidence can be ruled out.
     - Both Caesar and Jesus start their rising careers in neighboring states
 in the north: Gallia and Galilee.
     - Both have to cross a fateful river: the Rubicon and the Jordan. Once
 across the rivers, they both come across a patron/rival: Pompeius and John
 the Baptist, and their first followers: Antonius and Curio on the one hand
 and Peter and Andrew on the other.
     - Both are continually on the move, finally arriving at the capital, Rome
 and Jerusalem, where they at first triumph, yet subsequently undergo their
 passion.
     - Both have good relationships with women and have a special relationship
 with one particular woman, Caesar with Cleopatra and Jesus with Magdalene.
     - Both have encounters at night, Caesar with Nicomedes of Bithynia, Jesus
 with Nicodemus of Bethany.
     - Both have an affinity to ordinary people-and both run afoul of the
 highest authorities: Caesar with the Senate, Jesus with the Sanhedrin.
     - Both are contentious characters, but show praiseworthy clemency as
 well: the clementia Caesaris and Jesus' Love-thy-enemy.
     - Both have a traitor: Brutus and Judas. And an assassin who at first
 gets away: the other Brutus and Barabbas. And one who washes his hands of it:
 Lepidus and Pilate.
     - Both are accused of making themselves kings: King of the Romans and
 King of the Jews. Both are dressed in red royal robes and wear a crown on
 their heads: a laurel wreath and a crown of thorns.
     - Both get killed: Caesar is stabbed with daggers, Jesus is crucified,
 but with a stab wound in his side.
     - Jesus as well as Caesar hang on a cross. For a reconstruction of the
 crucifixion of Caesar, see:

     - Both die on the same respective dates of the year: Caesar on the Ides
 (15 th) of March, Jesus on the 15 th of Nisan.
     - Both are deified posthumously: as Divus Iulius and as Jesus Christ.
     - Caesar and Jesus also use the same words, e.g.: Caesar's famous Latin
 'Veni, vidi, vici'-I came, I saw, I conquered-is in the Gospel transmitted
 into: 'I came, washed and saw', whereby Greek enipsa, 'I washed', replaces
 enikisa, 'I conquered'.
     Prominent European scholars and intellectuals are jubilant:
