In this episode, Sacerdotus introduces the "Jesus Myth" hypothesis which has been around since the 18th century. This hypothesis posits that Jesus is an amalgamation of mythological personages from Egypt, Greece, Rome and other regions.  Some have tried to link mythic figures such as Horus, Mithras, Osiris, Dionysus etc by claiming that each figure was born on December 25th via a Virgin birth, died to save the world, had a Last Supper, rose from the dead and is a "Son of God."  Sacerdotus refutes each of these claims using scholarship used in academia, both secular and religious institutions.  He explains why these myths have nothing to do with Jesus and that they were conflated to Christ in an attempt to deceive.  The "Jesus Myth" hypothesis has no basis in evidence or scholarship and is not accepted by any educated serious scholar.
