“Lost Gospel” Claims Jesus Married Mary Magdalene and Had Children

Jesus married the prostitute Mary Magdalene and had children, according to a manuscript almost 1,500 years old unearthed at the British Library.

Professor Barrie Wilson and writer Simcha Jacobovic spent months translating the text, which they claim states Jesus had two children and the original Virgin Mary was Jesus’s wife and not his mother.

Many experts have downplayed the biblical figure’s historical importance but, according to the translators of the new gospel, she is of much greater significance than previously thought.

Mary Magdalene already features in the existing gospels and is present at many of the important moments recorded in Jesus’s life.

“The Lost Gospel” is not the first to claim that Jesus married Mary Magdalene.

Both Nikos Kazantzakis in his 1953 book “The Last Temptation of Christ” and, more recently, Dan Brown in “The Da Vinci Code” made the same allegation.

Further revelations from the book, including the names of Jesus’s children, will be released on Wednesday.

The publisher, Pegasus, has confirmed the press conference will go ahead as planned.

    The fact that Jesus married Mary Magdalene was not a problem. All rabbis had to marry. The real secret was that Mary Magdalene was also Jesus' sister. This is what the gospel authors have tried to cover up.

    Most of the Egyptian and Jewish monarchs, married their sisters – just like Pharaoh Akhenaton, Queen Cleopatra, The Torah's Abraham (who married Sarah) and the N.T.'s Agrippa II (who married Berenice). In these Eastern cults and cultures, it was a sacred tradition and duty to maintain the bloodline, by marrying a close family member. And Jesus had the very same sibling betrothal, to Mary Magdalene.

    In the historical record Mary Magdalene was Mary Boethus (Mary and Martha Boethus, of Talmud fame), and the Talmud says that these two sisters were the richest women in Judaea. Which is how these women paid for Jesus' mission (see Luke 8:3). And in the historical record, Mary Bothus married Jesus (Jesus of Gamala), a minor prince and governor of Galilee who led a rebel army of 600 'fishermen' and became the high priest of Jerusalem.

    Yes, this is what the historical record, as narrated by Josephus and the Talmud, says. Please see the books: "Cleopatra to Christ" and "King Jesus".

    Mary Magdalene was never a prostitute. The Catholic Church rewrote that part of the bible to degrade women.
