Crucifiction of Mary
Book 1 of the Genesis Revelation Series
Since the release of the Da Vinci Code in 2003, Leonardo Da Vinci’s Last Supper painting has come under intense scrutiny. Millions of people have been fascinated by the possibility that Jesus and Mary Magdalene were married and had children.
Discoveries of dozens, maybe even hundreds, of Last Supper Art, portraying a woman sitting next to Jesus have come to light. Some even predate Leonardo’s world-famous painting. A close study of the Gospel of John reveals the existence of a mysterious person called the ‘Beloved Disciple’-the catalyst for Da Vinci’s version.
John reveals that the disciple ‘whom Jesus loved’ and Saint Peter, the traditional head of the church, were involved in a power struggle for the leadership role after the crucifixion. Saint John describes the Beloved Disciple as a writer and teacher of truth. This description denotes an expanded view of Mary Magdalene.
Mary was the Apostle to the Apostles, a belief expressed by numerous Church fathers. The Gnostic Gospels add context and reveal what has been missing from the Magdalene narrative for almost two thousand years. Mary of Bethany, Mary Magdalene, and the Beloved Disciple are one person, the companion of Christ.
