Why Jesus Didn't Marry Mary Magdalene by John Schaik
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code draws on ideas from the history of Christianity and presents scenarios that the established Church has found difficult to quash. One such theory is that Jesus married Mary Magdalene -- an idea that has caught the popular imagination worldwide. Where the Church has tried simply to dismiss the question, this concise and fascinating book addresses it head-on and seriously considers all the evidence. John van Schaik uses his vast expertise and knowledge of esoteric Christianity to explore Christian history and the secret practices of the time of Jesus. To the likely disappointment of conspiracy theorists, he concludes firmly that Jesus and Mary Magdalene were not a couple. This book is an antidote to the vague theories and fantastic claims that have long surrounded the question of the relationship between Jesus and Mary Magdalene.
