- Based on manuscript found in British Library dating back 1,450 years

- The key: Every time the text says “Joseph,” they replace it with “Jesus.” Every time the text says “Aseneth,” they replace it with “Mary Magdalene.”

That’s right: Nowhere in this ancient text does the word "Jesus" appear. Or the words "Mary Magdalene."

- The two authors say it reveals that Jesus, far from being a lowly carpenter’s son hailing from the tiny town of Nazareth,

- Instead -- a powerful political figure

- At the highest levels of the Roman Empire.

- Years before the crucifixion, they say, there was a plot to kill him, rape Mary Magdalene, and slaughter their kids.

About Mary Magdalene Jacobovici said today.

- “Not only is he married -- but [the manuscript] celebrates his sexuality.

- She, his wife, is not just Mrs. Jesus

- She’s actually a goddess.

- He’s the son of God, she’s the daughter of God.

- Remove hope & purpose with false claims

- The medias desire is to eradicate truth

- Does this inspire & encourage you?
