The Gnostic Gospels
  Of Philip, Mary Magdalene,and Thomas:

Inside the Da Vinci Code and Holy Blood, Holy Grail.

This is a well written book. It gives the reader a mini-course in Gnostic beliefs and terms as a primer so the texts that follow can be easily understood.Gnostic cosmology and theology is explained in basic and clear terms. Then, the Gospels of Philip, Mary Magdalene, and Thomas follow, each with a brief history of how the codex was found, its age, and its place in the scheme of things. The result is a vivid and deep understanding.

The scriptures that sparked the modern debate about Jesus and Mary Magdalene are there, clear as day.

Here are a couple of the verses that seem to indicate a special relationship between Mary and Jesus along with comments from the book.

And the companion (Consort) was Mary of Magdala (Mary Magdalene). The Lord loved Mary more than all the other disciples and he kissed her often on her mouth (the text is missing here and the word "mouth" is assumed). The others saw his love for Mary and asked him: "Why do you love her more than all of us?" The Savior replied, "Why do I not love you in the same way I love her?"... Gospel of Philip...

Peter said to Mary; "Sister we know that the Savior loved you more than all other women. Tell us the words of the Savior that you remember and know, but we have not heard and do not know. Mary answered him and said; "I will tell you what He hid from you."... The Gospel of Mary Magdalene...

Seizing on the texts above, writers of both fiction and non-fiction allowed their pens to run freely amidst conjecture and postulation of marriage and children between Jesus and Mary Magdalene.

The writers of The Da Vinci Code and Holy Blood, Holy Grail took these passages and expanded them into storylines that have held readers captive with anticipation.

Did Jesus take Mary to be his wife? Could the couple have produced children? Gnostic theology leaves open the possibility.
