Publisher's Summary

In a startling follow-up to the New York Times best-seller The Jesus Family Tomb, a historical detective story that unravels a newly translated document filled with startling revelations and fascinating detail about the life and times of Jesus.
Waiting to be rediscovered in the British Library is an ancient manuscript of the early Church, copied by an anonymous monk. The manuscript is at least 1,450 years old, possibly dating to the first century, Jesus' lifetime. And now, The Lost Gospel provides the first-ever translation from Syriac into English of this unique document that tells the inside story of Jesus' social, family, and political life.
The Lost Gospel takes listeners on an unparalleled historical adventure through a paradigm-shifting manuscript. What the authors eventually discover is astounding: confirmation of Jesus' marriage to Mary the Magdalene; the names of their two children; the towering presence of Mary the Magdalene; a previously unknown plot on Jesus' life, thirteen years prior to the crucifixion; an assassination attempt against Mary the Magdalene and their children; Jesus' connection to political figures at the highest level of the Roman Empire; and a religious movement that antedates that of Paul - the Church of Mary the Magdalene. Part historical detective story, part modern adventure, The Lost Gospel reveals secrets that have been hiding in plain sight for millennia.

Thought Provoking Revelation of Jesus & Mary

This book cleverly takes you on a mystery tour, using another rediscovered coded manuscript to shine a light into a side of Jesus & his contemporaries that you never really considered yet now seems so obvious. Reminding you with a brief history lesson that Jesus & his crucifixion was not a 'stand alone story' when placed against Rome: Political Intrigue, Imperial ambitions, assassination attempts, machinations, lust & subplots, surprisingly involving Galilee being closer to Rome's movers & shakers than you'd think. Jesus was a man of his times & no political novice! Mary the Magdala also shines as a renowned beauty, astute & independent woman. Very much Jesus' equal, perhaps the "it couple' of the time! This all comes together beautifully in a candid & well researched theory. The fact that the original scrolls contents had to be recorded using double meaning ambiguities gives an idea of the level of political turmoil of the time, dictating Jesus rise & fall.

it all makes sound sense!

loved it, all the contradictions I perceived growing up in a Catholic society are now cleared up....the lost scroll is in fact the missing piece. Thank you for such a through research....we are one...that was his message ying and yang.

Very well-crafted but uses lot of sketchy material

Pretty central for much of the argument, is stuff like Virgin births like mithras, without any not that this is talking about being made out of a rock, and they take texts like The secret gospel of Mark and the Gospel of Jesus wife to be authentic.
Also they put very high stock in hidden changes in many texts that is simply edited or even removed to shift theology of text, with no textual evidence to back it up.

Also they some times have either done seriously sloppy work, or outright deliberately lied, for instance when they say that Ephrems hymn 21 specifically refers to Mary Magdalene, and not Mary the mother of Jesus, and cites a passage saying The church is like Mary, but when you check the hymn, the last Mary mentioned is Mary, Jesus' mom.

At the very least it was very entertaining read. But when I see so many factually wrong and borderline lies in the material I actually knew about, and in the few things I actually checked, I find no reason at all to trust that the even more speculative and controversial stuff is trustworthy either.

fascinating

This is a fascinating incite into the political implications of the early faith of Christianity. It presents the decoding of early text and the academic arguements for their justification clearly to the lay person. it makes you question eerything that the Christian Church believes, yet still with the belief in Jesus' work. i enjoyed listening to this book and will recommend this to others.

So was Jesus married?

This books gives the listener/ reader facts, hypothesis and suggestions about Jesus and the life we don't read in the bible. We are told many things from differing sources about his life, marriage, children and siblings. Try the book and make up your own mind.
