Full description for The Lost Gospel
Gathering dust at the British Museum is an ancient manuscript of the early Church, written by an anonymous monk. The manuscript is at least 1,600 years old, possibly dating to the first century. This revelatory book provides the first ever translation from Syriac into English of a profound document--some twenty-nine chapters in length --that tells us the inside story of Jesus' social, family, and political life. The Lost Gospel takes the reader on an exciting historical adventure through this highly informative ancient manuscript. The authors were easily able to decode the basic symbolism, but what the authors eventually discovered is as surprising as it ground-breaking: the confirmation of Jesus' marriage to Mary Magdalene; the names of their two children; the towering presence of Mary Magdalene (who was a Gentile priestess), a serious plot on Jesus' life in 19 C.E. prior to the crucifixion; an assassination plot against their children; Jesus' connection to political figures at the highest level of the Roman Empire--Emperor Tiberius and his protege Sejanus; and a religious movement that antedates that of Paul--the Church of Mary Magdalene. None of these discoveries are the authors' claims: they are what this ancient manuscript reveals now that it has been decoded. Part historical detective story, part travelogue about a journey into the heart of an ancient world, The Lost Gospel reveals a secret that's been hiding in plain sight for centuries.
