Speaking of Alexandrian Greeks with a geopolitical purpose, here is a view taken by Charles N. Pope, in his "Alexander the Great, Beyond the Divide", although he is talking about the New Testament and histories of Alexander the Great here: "Consequently, it follows that the Gospels were produced by the royal “literary factory.” And Jesus of the Gospels, like Alexander the Great, was a messianic figure by virtue of being an actual royal person himself. Jesus, and the royal court of his time, was heir in unbroken descent from the royal houses of the previous Greek and Persian Periods. In other words, those responsible for the New Testament were the direct successors of Alexander and his court. The sponsors of Alexander’s histories were in turn the direct successors of Xerxes and Cyrus the Great of Persia before them. The New Testament reflects the nature of the royal court as a precedent-based culture in the extreme. Current actions and relationships had to be legitimized by carefully and completely replicating what had gone before. The New Testament also reflects the continuity that existed from one empire to the next as the “scarlet thread” of kingship passed (by literal genetic inheritance) between the rulers of each successive empire. A single royal family was “all things to all people” and asserted their primacy over all nations and religions by assuming regional kingly and priestly identities."It's not so easy to see how a major re-invention of this Hebrew literature by Alexandrian Greeks of the 3rd century BCE, could have served any geopolitical purpose.
