Jesus in the Pantheon of Roman Gods?
Jesus in the Pantheon of Roman Gods?

According to a Christian historian from the 4th century CE – Eusebius of Caesareaemperor Tiberius, despite being a pagan, was told by Pontius Pilate about the disappearance the body of Christ and his alleged resurrection, he sent to the Roman senate the matter of ccepting Jesus into the pantheon of Roman gods. The Senate reportedly rejected the application because it was not he who brought the idea.

What’s more, Tiberius ordered that any attack on Christ’s followers would be punishable by death. Caligula was no longer so positive about Christians, and he brought so much trouble to Pilate himself that he committed suicide.
