Tiberius Julius Caesar Augustus (16 November 42 BC – 16 March 37 AD) was the adopted son of Augustus, the first Roman Emperor. Tiberius himself became the second emperor of Rome in AD 14, serving until his own death in 37. While Tiberius had been one of Rome's greatest generals, his reign as emperor was marred by his own disdain for the position. By the time of his death, Tiberius had exiled himself from Rome and left the ruling of the empire in the hands of corrupt sycophants. He was pointedly not deified upon his death.

Jesus was almost certainly crucified in the reign of Tiberius.

Tiberius in Give Me Back My Legions! Edit

Given his talents as a general, Tiberius was actually Augustus's first choice to lead an expedition to Germany. However, Tiberius was already engaged in putting down an uprising in Pannonia.[1] Thus, the task fell to Publius Quinctilius Varus, who failed in the task spectacularly.

Tiberius in "Shock and Awe"Edit

During Tiberius Caesar's reign, a man known as the Son of God led an uprising in the Jewish regions. One of the Son's sayings was "Give Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and give God what belongs to God." When the Son was captured, a Roman soldier named Marcus said that the Son's life (referred to metaphorically as "his ass"), and that of his right hand man the Rock, belonged to Caesar now.[2]

Literary commentEdit

While Tiberius isn't named specifically as the reigning Caesar, the POD should not have affected him.
