I'm sure some of you have seen the movie "The DaVinci Code" or maybe heard about such things as Priory of Sion, Opus Diei and the Knights of Templar. Whether you have or not, I'll give you a run down on the basics of this myth or legend as some call it. Basically, The DaVinci code is about Tom Hanks and some lady trying to find where the Holy Grail is. Nope, not the cup that Jesus drank from at the last supper, but the daughter that some say he had with Mary Magdalene. Yes, that's right, there are myths out there that suggest that Mary of Magdelene was more than just one of his disciples, and that in fact, he was a lover of his, or wife even. And that before he was crucified, she was impregnated by him. Right afterwards, it's said that she was spirited away into hiding to give birth to the child. If this is true, it's bad for the Catholics. Bad because according to them, in order to be a saint, you can't have a wife, or have sex. So naturally they would want to make sure no one found out. Hence the Priory of Sion is created. With their military force, the Knights of Templar, they set out to protect the bloodline of Jesus so that it is never found out. So to sum it all up, here are the basic points. -Some believe that Jesus had a kid. -It'd be bad for some because if Jesus had sex, and a kid, and a wife, that means he didn't die sinless up on the cross. Now, personally, as far as my religion goes, it doesn't matter whether Jesus had a kid or not. It doesn't say anywhere in the bible that having a kid with your wife is a sin. So therefore, he was still sinless. Where that comes into question however, is if the rumours about Mary of Magdalene being a prostitute are true. So before I ramble on and stop being coherent in my thoughts, I have just a few simple discussion questions to pose to you on this topic. For the sake of the debate, lets just assume that Jesus DID die on the cross, whether or not he was actually a god or not (although I believe he was =P) -Do you think there is any truth to this whole "Jesus had a kid thing"? -Was mary actually his wife? Or was she something else? -What kind of impact do you think there would be if someone were to prove that jesus had a kid, whether it be sinful or not? I have a few more opinions myself, but I want to save them for any discussions. I have done a bit of research on this, so if you have any questions about it, I'll see if I can answer.
