What actually transpired Easter Week/Passover 33 A.D.?
The Resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth was a Hoax!

      Culled from First Century Texts and drawn from dozens of biblical and secular sources, these monologues tell a revisionist tale of what transpired in Judea, Easter Week/Passover 33 AD and beyond during the reign of the Roman Emperor Tiberius.

      In the classical argots of Petronius, Rabelais, Chaucer, Shakespeare, Lenny Bruce, Guy Ritchie, James Joyce, David Jones, Cockney and the world's myriad cryptolects, The Canaanite Gospel strips bare the New Testament canard of the Resurrection of Yeshu of Nazareth and pokes a stick in the eye of the Synoptic Gospels.

From the Canaanite Gospel:

[A]nd as for Simon, knew me a lot a Simons 
But I don't truck wif no thug Simons.
                         --- Martha

And as Virgil casts the same by Cumae cooze,
        Ain't I the literate fuckin' guinea hopes to read in me palm 
Mugshots a Tibi on silver stamp
   Me little cuntie magpies bein' attracted to shiny objects.
                         --- Oranius 


I prosper as me people, just as we are.
           What cast out Saul is timely to me.
Who to slay his ten thousands and how to proceed.
                   No bloody timeless fiction a good will
When none's to ground.
                        --- Jesus Barabbas

Power arrests indulgence
              So best indulge 
In the torments power affords. 
        And such prissy disposed 
Can suck teardrops from me cock
        As close to ichor be they get.		
		--- Tiberius Julius Caesar Augustus

And I be, 'go yourfuckin'self, mister. 
            Do I the looks a Samson. 
Work one your stunts
                 Wif pulleys and levers
'Stead all day be winchin' up lady Magda's skirts.'
                        --- Johanna Chusa

So I beg your pardon, I knows where me knifes been and me mouf
           And how bofe got there by the laws.		   
		                --- Simon Kananaios

Me eldest son, Ace, I heard
           Was killed at the edge a the world
Not a full year in the ranks,
                   Head stoved in by a naked blue man
Wif his pecker hangin' out
                   Or that's the tellin'.
		--- Gaviolus

What of us to credit publicans and fishmongers
          Over rule and the law;
A corpse a some vagabond
          What promised deliverance
And can't even keep his own.
                       --- Safiya

And he, "Bitch if ye knew the gift 
                      What say a thee water
           Thou wouldn' balk 
But straigtway be wet about thy well." 
               And ta gall says I, "Sir, 'pears thou has little 
                     Ta draw wif and this well be deep."
	    --- Nalda, the Samaritan Woman

If I tell you me doubt was warrant
         How will I be fed?
If I tell you Yeshua was me twin
         How will you say he does not live in me?
		               --- Juda Didymus Thomas

No mistake. I loved him dear. But 
      Not our addled rebbi to this purpose
         As what I have set in motion.
		               --- Mary Magdala
