King Jesus
1946

Reviews:

In this work of historical fiction, told by Agabus the Decapolitan, Graves confronts Christianity, suggesting that Jesus's mother was secretly married to Herod's eldest son Antipater, whom Herod sacrificed in a ritual; that Jesus was conceived at the Feast of Tabernacles, which was at that time a fertility festival of the Great Mother Goddess cult; and that Jesus's mission was to destroy this Goddess cult and defeat the women (Mary Magdalen, Mary sister of Lazarus) who were a part of this movement. -Borders
