Apologetics Tuesday: Married Jesus?
The Da Vinci Debunked?
Last week I introduced the topic of the “Jesus/Mithra Myth” theory. It looks at face value that Jesus story was highly influenced by Mithraism until you look closer at those pesky things known as facts. Facts are those things that Dan Brown, author of The Da Vinci Code, really has a problem with. His books are generally filled with fabrications based solely on fiction. If you have read The Da Vinci Code you’ll know that the main claim that Brown makes is (Spolier Alert….) that Jesus somehow survived crucifixion, (See here for the debunking of this theory and Here) and married Mary Magdalene and fathered children.
This sounds preposterous especially when put up against the facts. The book came out nearly a decade ago, but this idea of a married Jesus hasn’t died the way it should have, due to the preface in Brown’s book saying that all of it is factual. I suppose in fiction you can even fictitiously label fiction as fact in the preface. However just last week a woman came out with a fragment dating to the 4th century that she claims proves that Jesus was in fact married to Mary Magdalene.
