Breaking the Da Vinci Code

More Errors In Brown’s Research

- Review some of last weeks points

+ The Pyramid outside the Louvre in Paris has exactly “666” panes of glass. (21)

>Designed by the famous architect I. M. Pei (who also designed the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!), the pyramid has 603 diamond-shaped and 70 triangular panes. It’s total is 673 panes of glass

+ The Olympic Games were held as a

tribute to the planet Venus. (36)

> > The Olympics were held in honor

of Zeus on a four year cycle.

+ The Pentacle almost became the

Olympic seal. Its five points were

exchanged for five inter-locking rings.(37)

> The familiar five-ring Olympic symbol design was created during 1913-1914 by the founder of the IOC, Baron Pierre de Coubertin. He wanted it to represent the first five Olympic Games

+ Mona Lisa is neither male nor female. It carries a subtle message of androgynous (120)

> Mona Lisa is a painting of a woman

- Madonna Lisa, wife of Francesco di Bartolomeo del Giocondo

+ If Brown Is Wrong On Other Things He Will Be Wrong On The Church & Bible

> THE GOSPELS

+ From Teabing: “The Bible did not arrive by fax from heaven. . . . The Bible is a product of man, my dear. Not of God. . . . it has evolved through countless translations, additions, and revisions. History has never had a definitive version of the book.” (231)

+ Teabing: “. . . any gospels that described the earthly aspects of Jesus’ life had to be omitted from the Bible.” (244)

> “Constantine commissioned and financed a new Bible, which omitted those gospels that spoke of Christ’s human traits and embellished those gospels that made Him godlike. The earlier gospels were outlawed, gathered up, and burned.” (234)

+ The Bible

> 2 Tim 3:16

> 2 Pet 1:21

+ Some of the Bible periods

> New Testament Period – 35-90

> Accepting the Writings – 90-160

> Canon Awareness – 160-250

> Council of Nicaea – 325

> “Nobody is saying Christ was a fraud, or denying that He walked the earth and inspired millions to better lives. All we are saying is that Constantine took advantage of Christ’s substantial influence and importance. And in doing so, he shaped the face of Christianity as we know it today. . . . Constantine upgraded Jesus’ status almost four centuries after Jesus’ death.” (234)

+ The royal bloodline of Jesus Christ has been chronicled in exhaustive detail by scores of historians (253)
