About the Book

JESUS CAESAR – The real father of Jesus Christ revealed
by Petra Cadman

A Short Review

In an endeavour to establish the identity of the father of Jesus Christ, Petra Cadman takes us back to the days of Augustus and Tiberius Caesar to relive the day to day lives of the citizens of that time.
She found, rather astonishingly, that there were several recorded virgin births, as well as numerous miracle healings and raisings from the dead. Jesus’ mother, Mary, came from a notable family and was a vestal virgin in Rome before he was born. His deified father was none other than that emperor who was always on the lookout for young girls, and who granted special favours to the vestal virgins – Augustus Caesar. After falling pregnant, and to keep secret the unacceptable affair of a vestal virgin with that of a Roman Emperor, Mary was found a husband in Judaea. Jesus, when he reached an educatable age, was sent to Rome to live and study as had Herod’s sons before him, under the auspices of his father, together with numerous stepchildren whom Augustus felt compelled to educate. Jesus returned to Judaea from time to time, but in Rome had an enormous library at his disposal, where he learned several languages, philosophy, economics, healing, history, plus much more. He inherited a large sum of money from his father, as well as a tract of land, known as Caesarea Philippi, upon which Jesus was determined to build his kingdom, and which could be inherited by his followers upon his death. With the disappointment of Tiberius’ rule, Jesus left Rome determined to establish a better life for the people of Judaea. Enlisting the aid of some of the Essenes, with whom he stayed after his sojourn in the desert, he carefully planned his tour, making sure his followers knew where and when he would be staging his forthcoming appearances. Presuming that Jesus looked at least in part like his father, of whom history gives a good description, Petra has been able to put together the physical attributes of Jesus. Not only that, she also believes that he would have plucked his eyebrows and removed the hairs from his legs by singeing them with hot walnut shells, a trend which was followed by men at that time. She assumes he was obese, like a good many Romans, which prompted his 40 day fast in the desert. Petra has been able to find a normal explanation for most of the miracles of the New Testament, and she believes that Jesus did not die on the cross, but lived on, seeing that his ideals were kept alive. She has shown that Jesus was a good teacher, a humanitarian, but mostly that he wanted to help people to help themselves, and this was the embodiment of his teachings. He was determined to make people realise that the fulfillment of the prophecies ended with him, and that they should no longer anticipate another prophet dropping by to make life easier. While many readers will be shocked to learn of the ordinariness of Jesus, most will enjoy this earthly insight into his lifestyle, showing where he spent most nights during his mission, how he came to have an ass at his disposal, and why he chose one that hadn’t been ridden before. The author has obtained her information from ancient writings, and while there is no fact stating that Augustus was the father of Jesus, Petra believes that he was. Although this is a relatively short book, it certainly is an enjoyable eye opener.
