Some believe an elaborate conspiracy has perpetrated lies about Jesus. They say He was actually married to Mary Magdalene and had a child with her. As preposterous as this sounds to Bible believers who take the Gospels as, well, gospel, the idea of a different Jesus” has tremendous appeal to many people. Which is why “The Da Vinci Code” by Dan Brown has been a best selling book, and has been featured on a recent prime time television talk show. Some synagogues and Jewish community centers have even offered lectures and classes based on the novel. If you know someone, particularly if you have a Jewish friend, who finds this book intriguing, you will want to read a messianic Jewish perspective on the book. Our most recent volume of ISSUES gives just that.
