About the Book
The Dead Sea Scrolls, the Gnostic writings and now The Lost Gospel, a newly decoded manuscript that uncovers groundbreaking revelations about the life and times of Jesus of Nazareth-a startling follow-up to the New York Times bestseller The Jesus Family Tomb.
Gathering dust at 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, i.e., Jesus' lifetime. 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 the reader on an unparalleled historical adventure through a paradigm-shifting manuscript. What the authors eventually discover is astounding: the confirmation of Jesus' marriage to Mary Magdalene; the names of their two children; the towering presence of Mary Magdalene; a previously unknown plot on Jesus' life, thirteen years prior to the crucifixion; an assassination attempt against Mary 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 Magdalene. Part historical detective story, part modern adventure, The Lost Gospel reveals secrets that have been hiding in plain sight for millennia.
