Seizing on the texts above, writers of both fiction and non-fiction allowed their pens to run freely amidst conjecture and postulation of marriage and children between Jesus and Mary Magdalene.

The writers of The Da Vinci Code and Holy Blood, Holy Grail took these passages and expanded them into storylines that have held readers captive with anticipation.

Did Jesus take Mary to be his wife? Could the couple have produced children? Gnostic theology leaves open the possibility.

    Jesus and Mary

    When the writers of Holy Blood, Holy Grail brought suit, accusing Dan Brown, writer of the Da Vinci Code, of taking their ideas, I thought it was silly, since the original ideas came from the Gospel of Philip and the Gospel of Mary Madgalene. Now, this book gives us the full Gnostic texts of both and shows us where the idea of a relationship between Jesus and Mary of Magdala came from. It also include the Gospel of Thomas, one of the most powerful Gnostic texts known. And the companion (Consort) was Mary of Magdala (Mary Magdalene). The Lord loved Mary more than all the other disciples and he kissed her often on her mouth (the text is missing here and the word ¿mouth¿ is assumed). The others saw his love for Mary and asked him: ¿Why do you love her more than all of us?¿ The Savior replied, ¿Why do I not love you in the same way I love her?¿ Gospel of Philip Peter said to Mary ¿Sister we know that the Savior loved you more than all other women. Tell us the words of the Savior that you remember and know, but we have not heard and do not know. Mary answered him and said ¿I will tell you what He hid from you.¿ The Gospel of Mary Magdalene Seizing on the texts above, writers of both fiction and non-fiction allowed their pens to run freely amidst conjecture and postulation of marriage and children between Jesus and Mary Magdalene. The writers of The Da Vinci Code and Holy Blood, Holy Grail took these passages and expanded them into storylines that have held readers captive with anticipation. Did Jesus take Mary to be his wife? Could the couple have produced children? Gnostic theology leaves open the possibility.
