Who Wrote The New Testament?
The authorship of the New Testament books have been discovered. For years, the book “The True Authorship of the New Testament” has been out and many persons have been discovering this as well.
Now, we feel that it is time to put this information out on the Net. There has been a few WebPages on the Net telling about how and why the Roman Piso family authored the New Testament. But there had yet to be the information on who wrote each of the New Testament books. So, here you will find out who wrote what. There is enough information here so that persons can grasp the fact that this is real and that they can research it further as well as find books that will help to explain this in more detail.
Soon, there will be new books out that will enable even the person to do their own research on this and to verify it. Our goal in all of this is to get this out to as many persons as possible and to see more and more persons writing on this subject. Look for books on the subject of: ‘The Piso Theory’, and of ‘The New Classical Scholarship’.
We have determined that the book of Mark was the first of the Gospels to have been written and so we will always list Mark before Matthew.
THE NT BOOKS:
The gospel of Mark was written in a prototype form before it was later crafted into the form that we are familiar with. The earlier version was called ‘Ur Marcus’ and is also known/called ‘Q’ (for ‘Quelle’, which is German for the ‘source’).
Our latest findings regarding the early version of Mark show that this was written at about the time of Claudius Caesar, by the grandfather of Arrius Piso. That version was apparently only a bare sketch and most likely did not give a name to the ‘messiah’. That appears to have been done later by the person who actually played ‘Jesus’ in the Gospels - Arrius Piso
The version that we are familiar with was written about the year 73 CE by Arrius Calpurnius Piso. Arrius Piso was a Roman on his father’s side, but a descendant of King Herod on his mother’s side and therefore he knew well about the Jewish religion. He was also a close relative to the Flavians and even though secretly he could inherit and use the Flavian name by his mother’s descent from them, he gave a story about receiving it from the emperor Vespasian (in his other identity as Flavius Josephus).
Matthew too, was authored by Arrius Calpurnius Piso. This was written about the year 75 CE.
Was written 85-90 CE by Arrius C. Piso and Pliny the Younger.
The 4th Gospel, or the Gospel of John was written by Justus Calpurnius Piso, a son of Arrius C. Piso. This son was very much like this father in his hatred towards humanity. This Gospel was written circa 105 CE.
The Acts of the Apostles was written by Arrius Piso and his son Justus, with some help from Pliny the Younger 96-100 CE. By the way, there is a portion of Acts that is missing from most English translations/interpretations. That is the 29th Chapter, which has 10 verses.
The epistle to the Romans was written by another son of Arrius Piso (Proculus Piso) and Claudia Phoebe about the year 100. Claudia Phoebe is known in history as the wife of the emperor Trajan (as Pompeia Plotina). She wrote the last few verses of this epistle, which many copies of the NT in English leave out because that portion was written by a woman. This is obvious, and she even gives her name as ‘Phoebe’. You can tell where the previous male author leaves off and the female author begins because the male author “signs off” with ‘Amen’. She wrote the last verses (25-27) of Romans, Chapter 16.
1st CORINTHIANS, GALATIONS, and EPHESIANS:
were all written between 100-103 CE by Pliny the Younger.
2nd CORINTHIANS and PHILIPPIANS:
were written by Justus C. Piso between 103-105 CE.
was written by Justus C. Piso and his son Julianus (Julianus was the father of the emperor Marcus Aurelius, but this is seen in history only by his use of another name ‘Verus’).
was written by Pliny the Younger circa 105 CE.
was written by Justus C. Piso (also known in history by other names), c. 107 CE.
1st and 2nd THESSALONIANS:
were written by Justus C. Piso and his son Julianus with some help from his nephew Silanus between the years 105-110 CE.
was written by Pliny the Younger circa 103-105 CE.
was written by Justus C. Piso and his son Julianus.
was written by Justus C. Piso around 110 CE.
1st and 2nd PETER:
were written by Proculus Piso between 110-115 CE.
1st, 2nd and 3rd JOHN:
were written by Julius Calpurnius Piso (who was still another son of Arrius Calpurnius Piso), between 110-115 CE.
was written by Julius C. Piso also, between the years 110-115 CE.
THE REVELATION OF JOHN THE DIVINE:
was written by Julius Calpurnius Piso, who may have been the son of the other Julius Calpurnius Piso (who had the same name), and this was written in or about the year 137 CE. It was not the book of the NT, just written as the end of the story.
This was written by a grandson of Arrius Piso named Flavius Arrianus circa 140 CE. Flavius Arrianus was the real name of the historian who wrote as ‘Appian’. This person was the half-brother of the emperor Antoninus Pius. Antoninus Pius, by the way, also wrote history under the name of Suetonius. Flavius Arrianus also wrote other works, most notably, he wrote under the name of ‘Ptolemy’.
FROM CHAPTER 1 of The True Authorship of the New Testament
by Abelard Reuchlin
from TheRomanPisoForum Website
“The New Testament, the Church, and Christianity, were all the creation of the Calpurnius Piso
(pronounced Peso w/ long “E”) family (a), who were Roman aristocrats. The New Testament and
all the characters in it—Jesus, all the Josephs, all the Marys, all the disciples, apostles, Paul, and
John the Baptist—are all fictional.”
“The Pisos created the story and the characters; they tied the story into a specific time and place in
history; and they connected it with some peripheral actual people, such as the Herods, Gamaliel, the
Roman procurators, etc. But Jesus and everyone involved with him were created (that is, fictional!)
“In the middle of the first century of our present era, Rome’s aristocracy felt itself confronted with a
growing problem. The Jewish religion was continuing to grow in numbers, adding ever more
proselytes. Jews numbered more than 8,000,000, and were 10% of the population of the empire
and 20% of that portion living east of Rome. (b) Approximately half or more of the Jews lived
outside Palestine, of which many were descended from proselytes, male and female.” (c)
“However, Judaism’s ethics and morality were incompatible with the hallowed Roman institution of
slavery on which the aristocracy fed, lived and ruled. They feared that Judaism would become the
chief religion of the empire. The Roman author, Annaeus Seneca, tutor and confidant of Emperor
Nero, suggested in a letter to his friend Lucilius (a pseudonym of Lucius Piso) that lighting candles
on Sabbaths be prohibited. (d) Seneca is later quoted by St. Augustine in his City of God (e)
(although the quotation does not exist in Seneca’s extant writings) as charging that:
“the (Sabbath) customs of that most accursed nation have gained such strength that they have been now received in all lands, the conquered have given laws to the conqueror.””
“The family headed by Seneca’s friend, Lucius Piso, was confronted with an allied problem more
personal to it. They were the Calpurnius Pisos, who were descended from statesmen and consuls,
and from great poets and historians as well. Gaius and Lucius Calpurnius Piso, leaders of the family,
had both married Arria the Younger (from her grandfather’s name, Aristobulus). This made Gaius
and Lucius Piso’s wife the great-granddaughter of Herod the Great.”
“Repeatedly, religious-minded Judaean zealots were staging insurrections against the Herodian rulers
of Judaea who were Piso’s wife’s relations. Piso wished to strengthen his wife’s family’s control of
the Judaeans. The Pisos searched for a solution to the two problems. They found it in the Jewish
holy books, which were the foundation both for the rapid spread of the religion and for the zealot’s
refusal to be governed by Rome’s puppets. The Pisos mocked, but marveled at, the Jewish belief in
their holy books. Therefore, they felt a new “Jewish” book would be the ideal method to pacify the
Judaeans and strengthen their in-laws’ control of the country.”
“About the year, 60 A.D. (C.E.), Lucius Calpurnius Piso composed Ur Marcus, the first version of
the Gospel of Mark, which no longer exists. He was encouraged by his friend Seneca (f) and
assisted by his wife’s kinsman, young Persius the Poet. Nero’s mistress (later his wife) Poppea was
pro-Jewish, and Nero opposed the plan. The result was the Pisonian conspiracy to assassinate
Nero, detailed in the historian Tacitus. But this attempt failed when he aborted the plot. Instead,
Nero had Piso and Seneca and their fellow conspirators executed by forcing them to commit
“He exiled Piso’s young son Arrius (spelled “Arius” herein), who appears in Tacitus under several
names, including “Antonius Natalis.” (g) Nero sent young Piso to Syria as governor. That post also
gave him command of the legions controlling Judaea. His own “history” records his service in Judaea
in the year 65 under the name of Gessius Florus, and in 66 with the pseudonym Cestius Gallus.”
“This Arius Calpurnius Piso deliberately provoked the Jewish revolt in 66 so he could destroy the
Temple in Jerusalem (h)--for the Jews were unwilling to accept his father’s story and thereby
become pacified by it as it was intended. However, his 12th legion was caught by the zealots in the
Pass of Beth Horon and almost lost. Nero’s reaction was to exile him instead to Pannonia, to
command a legion there; and to send Licinius Mucianus to serve in Syria, and Vespasian to Judaea
to put down the Jewish revolt.”
“Then in 68 Nero was assassinated by his own slave Epaphroditus (i) --who unknown to his master
was young Piso’s lackey. Galba became emperor and named Piso’s cousin, Licinianus Piso, (j) as
his intended successor; but Galba in turn was soon overthrown by Otho. Otho was then overthrown
by Vitellius, at which point Piso and his friends began to flock together against the latter. The Pisos,
Mucianus, and Tiberius Alexander all joined ranks behind Vespasian to seek to overthrow Vitellius.
(k) The were joined by Frontinus and Agricola.”
“Arius Calpurnius Piso was still commanding the 7th legion in Pannonia (l) (Austria-Hungary), and
Vespasian sent him (m) (now appearing in Tacitus with the name Marcus Antonius Primus (n)) south
across the Alps to overthrow Vitellius. Meanwhile, the main body of Vespasian’s legions marched
overland under Mucianus from the east towards Rome. Piso succeeded in defeating Vitellius’ army
and secured Rome for Vespasian.(o) Mucianus arrived and promptly sent him to Judaea to help
Titus at the siege of Jerusalem. He did so, and in 70 they assaulted the city, then the Temple, burned
it, slaughtered many thousands, sent thousands more to slavery and gladiatorial combat and death.”
“Then, Arius Calpurnius Piso wrote, in sequence, the following:
Gospel of Matthew (70-75 C.E.)
Present Gospel of Mark (75-80 C.E.)
Gospel of Luke (85-90 C.E., with help of Pliny the Younger)
In the gospel story he inserted himself by playing the role of not only Jesus, but of all the
Josephs, as well. He particularly enjoyed assuming the identity of Joseph. Wishing to create a
Jewish hero, a savior, in fictional form, he (and his father before him), felt the identity of a second
Joseph secretly, but very aptly, fit them. For their name Piso had the same four letters, rearranged,
as the four Hebrew letters (Yud Vov Samech Fey) which in that language spelled the name Joseph.
Thus they saw themselves as the new Joseph. That is why so much of the story of Joseph in Egypt is
secretly redone and inserted into the gospel story of Jesus.”

(m) (Tacitus) Vespasian relied on Piso because he was grandson of his own brother—Vespasian’s brother, T. Flavius Sabinus, had married Arria Sr., who was Piso’s maternal grandmother. Piso’s identity as thus also a Flavian is decipherable from the appearance in the Flavian family line of L. Caesennius Paetus (Townend, Gavin, Some Flavian Connections, Journal of Roman Studies LI.54,62, 1961). That was an alias (like Thrasea Paetus) of Piso’s father, L. Calpurnius Piso.
See page 20 supra, wherein Piso himself also is mentioned as a Caesennius Paetus. That is the true reason Piso used the literary pseudonym of Flavius; it was not because of his alleged-but untrue and hardly necessary-adoption by Emperor Flavius Vespasian. He was in fact a Flavian.
Piso humorously used the three basic consonants of the Flavians’ Sabinus name, SBN, in revised sequences for some of his fictional literary identities:
(1) BarNaBaS who appears in Acts 4.36 and there specifically stated as another name of a Joseph (Josephus!)
(2) BarNaBazoS in Antiq. XI.207,
(3) BaNnoS in Vita 11, the mirror-image of John the Baptist.
The same device of rearranging consonants was used in recreating Afranius Burrus, the friend of Seneca (Tacitus, Annals XIII-XIV)-and therefore of Lucius Piso. He was Nero’s Praetorian Prefect, and then several years before Seneca’s death, was himself a victim of the emperor. Burrus reappears as BaRaBbaS, the fictional brigand in Mat. 27.16.
(n) (Tacitus, Histories III.6). The realization that Marcus Antonius Primus was a pseudonym of Arius Calpurnius Piso is based on these factors:
1. The name in Pliny’s letters under which Piso is the latter’s wife’s grandfather is Arius Antoninus.
2. According to Suetonius (Lives of the Caesars, Book IV. XXV), Emperor Caius Caligula appropriated Gaius Piso’s wife at Piso’s marriage. That would have been about the year 36--the year before Arius’ birth. Caligula is known to have been a descendant of Mark Antony (Marcus Antonius). Seemingly Suetonius was teasing at the questioned paternity of Piso’s alter ego creation.
3. Tacitus’ caustic description of Marcus Antonius Primus remind one of Piso.
4. The idea to call Piso “Antonius Primus”—was his own. It was Piso himself in his Jewish War IV.495 who first detailed Antonius Primus’ campaign for Vespasian against Vitellius. Also Josephus inserts “Antonius” (himself!) as a centurion who dies at the capture of Jotapata (Jewish War III.333).
5. Marcus Antonius Primus’ colleague in the campaign against Vitellius is named Arrius Varus (Tacitus, Histories III.6). This is yet another alter ego of Piso himself. In the mid-50’s (C.E.), while in his late teens, young Piso was a prefect of a cohort of legionnaires in the campaign against Vologeses, King of Armenia—serving there (in Tacitus, Annals XIII.9) under the name of Arrius Varus.
6. His exploits as General Marcus Antonius Primus account for his absence from Judaea in the years 67-69, between his defeat as Cestius Gallus and his reappearing to assist Titus as the siege of Jerusalem in 70. Rather than being Vespasian’s prisoner in chains, he was his general, advancing on Rome in his behalf.
