As much as I am enjoying this, I must give some constructive criticism about Ralph Ellis at this point. I could provide more detail, but wish to make a long story short for this posting. In Part 1 of the posted video, about 20 minutes from the end, I think that Mr. Ellis is letting his imagination getting carried away a bit when he states that the New Testament says that Jesus was crucified in a "purple cloak", it does not say that, but he probably was mocked with one before being stripped for crucifixion. OK, I am nitpicking in that case, but, intentionally or not, Mr. Ellis is also conflating people and events, because the "Basilides", who presented Vespasian with the "oracle" in Alexandria in AD 69, could not be the "Jesus" who was taken down from the cross at Jerusalem in AD 70 by the intervention of Josephus (of Arimathea) with Titus. Jesus could not have been taken to Alexandria after his crucifixion to see Vespasian, who was already in Rome by AD 70 as Emperor. However, if I may try to save this story for him, Jesus may well have negotiated a deal with Titus after being taken down from the cross, with Josephus as the mediator, and then sent to Rome with Josephus to actually meet Emperor Vespasian for his final approval.
