'The Emperor Domitian' by Brian Jones, is the book review backdrop used, to begin testing whether what the Bible satirizes about Domitian, can be demonstrated in actual Roman history. This matters a bunch, for many incompetent 'scholars' claim that Revelation was written in 70 AD and that its text references Nero. Jones admits that claim, but I can't tell whether he agrees with it, nor does that matter. The point is to match up the Bible satire with Domitian, and test my own claims about what that satire means. So that testing, begins here.

So Jones' book is shown in the same snippets you could read yourself online (without having to purchase it), here, Chapter 5, 'Administration', at amazon.com/Emperor-Domitian-Brian-W-Jones/dp/0415101956/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1423896406&sr=1-1&keywords=Emperor+Domitian+Jones#reader_0415101956 . You can also read that section sometimes, in Google Books.

Here, I'm renting the horrible Kindle version, which had no Table of Contents and no page numbers (but that's not Kindle's fault -- I learned after making this video that it's the publisher not Kindle, who decides whether to omit Tables of Contents and page numbers, so Kindle refunded my rental money). So the view is restricted, so as not to violate copyright. I did read the whole book and will probably buy it in paperback.

The Jones book's Chapter 5 (page 99ff) and snippets later on, are used (hopefully without violating copyright, but if they want me to take down the videos I will) -- for the first five Parts. Last part is one hour long, and covers the writing of Cassius Dio, which is in the public domain.

Dio's account, mentioned at 10:30 in this video, is at penelope.uchicago.edu/Thayer/E/Roman/Texts/Cassius_Dio/67*.html . This will be shown (since it's public domain) in 6/6 Domitian (which lasts an hour), to illustrate how the Bible satire on Domitian (syllables=years 81-96) in Eph 1:4-5, 1Peter1:3 (approx. syllables 96-113), 2Peter 1:3, syllables 87-102) prophetically reflects what Dio ended up writing about Domitian.

So too, for Jones' Book, and the comparison with the Pauline and Petrine texts, is done live on screen so you can decide whether my claims are plausible. For I sought to see what Jones had to say about Domitian, which perhaps was reflected in Bible's own satirical prophecies on him (same verses), and of course the same with Dio, in Part 6.

Bible makes a stink of this year, to show how a believer (here, Paul) influences history. Four Bible books come out as a result of Paul's death (so latest Bible book at that time had been 2 Timothy), in rapid succession: 1 and 2 Peter (count as one book), then Jude, then Mark's Gospel, then the Book of Hebrews. I've been doing videos on this order for several years, starting back in Youtube, but stopped posting in Youtube, back on 11/7/13. So the vimeo collection here, has those old videos, plus all the later ones.

This Channel will be first headed by BOOKS you can read on the topic, then will have the videos on Peter, Jude, Mark, and Hebrews that relate to the topic. The YOUTUBE playlist RFG 5 videos (starting here, youtube.com/watch?v=lH9XGFxAzeY&list=PL5E39FE2FF6897D30&index=13 ) should be viewed first or last, as they summarize the topic's importance, but the Youtube playlist has errors in it, because in the beginning I wasn't sure of the book order. Still, its videos are short and cutesy (dumbed-down). When it covers the same idea but lists the above Bible books in a different order, just know that the order in this Channel description is the proper one.

You establish the order, via the meter. Each of the books TAGS the ones prior, by means of both meter and text, as is the normal style when meter is used:

PETER tags Paul's Ephesians 1:3-14 METER and text, making an interactive marching song out of Paul's text, Peter adding an antiphonal set of stanzas: idea of two Roman cohorts marching in parallel columns down the same broad Roman Road, one singing the Pauline 'stanza', then 'replied to' by one singing the Petrine 'addition'. It's awesome. In 2 Peter Meter Sleuthing subsection of this channel, we'll see how 1 and 2 Peter tagged 2 Timothy, followed by another subsection (from the timmeter channel) of 2Tim videos, so you can see what Peter was tagging. Sorry this is so complex.

Jude then tags Peter, which all the scholars well know, but they don't know Jude tags Peter in meter.

Mark then tags both, using only the dateline tag, but his text imitates the sarcastic style of Paul, then Peter, then Jude. So we know it comes next.

Book of Hebrews bases its outline on a WEAVING between Book of Mark, whose chapters Hebrews follows, with Peter's and Paul's points woven into the text, interactively 'answering' the points they raise, to elaborate on them. Style is the same as the way Luke wraps to Matthew. So that implies the author of Hebrews is either Mark or Luke. We know it's not Paul, he'd died, per Hebrews 13:23.

This is of mammoth importance in hermeneutics, destroying that horrible lie of a Quelle or the false claim that Mark is the first Gospel. You can prove both claims lies simply by reading the Gospels as Matthew then Luke then Mark then John, even in translation (as I'm trying to show in the Synoptics channel, which demonstrates the surgical writing/wrap technique live onscreen). But the wrapping to Mark by Hebrews helps you see it all more clearly.

Videos are a slog. Be skeptical, as I can't have gotten all this right. But enough is right and shown, so you can vet the material. Bible 'balances' like a checkbook, precisely. So at least you'll see something of the technique it uses, with meter-interacting-with text, so you can do your own testing.

Will take years to complete this, if I even live long enough; and I'm sure I'll have to revise, much. So use 1John1:9 as you examine the material, ask God where I made mistakes or what is really true, and He will show you.
