Were Jesus and Mary Magdalene Married?
 

The Ancient of Days
DaVinci Coda Conference with Michael S. Heiser, PhD

Part 3: "Were Jesus and Mary Magdalene Married?"

This video gives discussion of who Mary Magdalene was and wasn't, as well as an evaluation of the alleged evidence put forth by Dan Brown and his sources that Mary was the wife of Jesus. Ancient languages expert Michael Heiser compares the Gnostic Jesus with the Jesus of the Bible. Was Jesus, as a rabbi, required to marry? Was Mary his companion? His wife? Were these and other secrets buried along with Jesus? These and other questions are examined. Relevant texts, including the gospel accounts and the gnostic texts, are examined. Dr. Heiser shows what is in the text and what isn't. You might just be surprised.
