Three years ago, Prof. Barrie Wilson and I published a book titled “The Lost Gospel: Decoding the Ancient Text that Reveals Jesus’ Marriage to Mary the Magdalene” (Pegasus / Canada HarperCollins). It is based on a 1400-year-old manuscript in the British Library. Much of this encoded Gospel deals with Jesus’ personal life. But one part provides the politics behind the crucifixion. In the Gospels, it seems that from the moment of Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem to his crucifixion, only five days elapsed. In contrast, this manuscript expands “Holy Week” into six months! It resolves all sorts of unexplained inconsistencies in the Gospels; for example, why was Jesus not arrested by the Romans when he created a riot in the Temple, by overturning the tables of the currency exchangers? Why was he treated like a political hot potato, passed from the Temple High Priest, to the Roman-appointed Jewish ruler, to the Roman governor himself… and back again? If Jesus wasn’t arrested when he caused trouble, why was he arrested when he caused none? Our book reveals the high-level Roman politics that surrounded Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem.
And now… the movie!
Tomorrow night, on PBS in the United States (April 4th) @ 8PM/7C “The Last Days of Jesus” will have its premiere. It’s based, in part, on our book and is sure to cause some lively debate and, hopefully, throw some light on one of the most important events in human history.
“The greatest story ever told” will now be told in a way that it’s never been told before.
